Summer Camp Opportunity for Pre-Health Students

Do you still need something fun to do this summer? Are you energetic, creative, and enthusiastic? Do you like working with youth and being a part of a FUN team? Are you looking to gain experience in the healthcare field or working with people with special health care needs?

If YES, then Camp Promise-West is looking for YOU!

Camp Promise-West (www.camppromise.org) is a one-week overnight camp that is provided free of charge for kids, teens, and adults with muscular dystrophy and select neuromuscular diseases. We believe all kids should get to experience the magic of camp, regardless of their medical needs or physical abilities. Our schedule is jam packed with theme days, pranks, costumes, summer fun, and activities that are 100% wheelchair accessible.

We highly valuable our volunteers that make camp possible and are looking for mature, responsible and fun individuals to join our team.

This is an ideal opportunity for individuals who are dedicated to giving back to their community and/or who are interested in a career in the healthcare field and are looking for experience working one-on-one with individuals with special healthcare needs. Many (but not ALL!) of our volunteers are pre-health students (e.g., medicine, nursing, physician assistants, PT/OT) or interested in social work or counseling, or are graduate students/professionals in these fields.

While helpful, experience is not required as we provide all necessary training at our orientation session prior to camper arrival.

Our volunteers are 16+, come from diverse backgrounds and from all over the country, so whatever your skills may be, if you are committed to making camp the best week of our campers’ year, we’d love to hear from you!
