Volunteer at Summer Camp

This is the ultimate, awesome answer to “What did you do this summer?”

Join us at Summer Camp. Blue skies, huge smiles and infinite rewards are in store.

Our summer camps bring hundreds of kids with serious illnesses to the glorious mountains of Colorado where fresh air and awe-inspiring experiences are plentiful. From the first “welcome” to the final bittersweet goodbye, campers say that even their first time here feels like coming home.

During our Summer Camp sessions, we welcome volunteers to serve in a variety of important ways (while also soaking up that Colorado beauty themselves!) Some of our Summer Camp volunteer positions include:
