The PALS Volunteer Experience

Volunteer Counselors are paired one-to-one with Campers and spend the week on teams at college campuses as they build new friendships, explore new regions, and take part in dynamic programming. 

What Is Expected

We ask that our Volunteers be present, arrive with an open mind, bring your best dance moves, get to know your roommate, and HAVE FUN!

Counselors have no out-of-pocket costs during the week, other than transportation to and from Camp. Applicants should be ready to be both challenged and inspired. 


Medical & Media Support Staff

Our Medical and Media Volunteers serve vital roles in the PALS community and are necessary to ensure our 2018 summer is a success.

We need Media Volunteers (photographers and videographers) at each Camp to capture each and every moment of the PALS magic.  

We are looking for Medical Volunteers (doctors, nurses, PAs) to distribute medication, review medical forms, and support the safety of our Campers and Counselors during the week of Camp. This year, we are also accepting applications for Assistant Medical Volunteers (EMTs, LPNs, CNAs, nursing students, and medical students).

For more information about these roles, please contact our Recruitment Associate, Brenna O'Sullivan.

Camp PALS is hands down the greatest place on earth, and is somewhere that I call home. I don’t know where I would be without it and I am always so impressed by the directors for putting together such a great week for everyone.
