Inclusive CPS: Description & FAQs
We are looking for mature and independent individuals with Down syndrome who are looking to gain volunteer experience and help make the best week of the summer happen! The deadline for the application is Friday, December 8th.
CAMP PALS SUPPORT (CPS) JOB DESCRIPTION:
Camp PALS Support (CPS) help with various behind-the-scenes tasks throughout the week of Camp. Often you will find CPS helping to set up for meals, decorating for the dance, or even preparing for the Olympics. The CPS team empowers and supports each other throughout the week to develop new skills and grow as leaders.
The Inclusive CPS Team is an opportunity for individuals with Down syndrome who have previously been in the Camper role to learn what it is like to be a Camp PALS Volunteer.
Every Camp has a CPS team and through this program we are opening up half of those Volunteer positions, at three locations: New Jersey, Philadelphia - Session 1, and San Francisco to individuals with Down syndrome.
Team members will be responsible for completing tasks as assigned by the Director team.
CPS will arrive on campus the Friday before Camper Arrival to attend Volunteer Training.
