Despite all this cold weather, believe it or not it is time to start planning for summer! We are eager to get Certified Child Life Specialists and child life students involved with our partner Camp Noah. To learn more about our partnership, check out our previous blog post “Partnership with Camp Noah.” Camp logistics are still being organized, but we would like to begin recruiting in the following areas:
Florida Keys- Monroe County
California – Lake, Sonoma, and Mendocino Counties
If you live in or near any of these locations and would be interested in participating, please complete the Camp Noah volunteer interest form as soon as possible.
Camp roles include:
Locally Trained Volunteer (open to students and CCLS): The primary role is to support the camp through helping with food, registration, set-up and take-down, etc. Online training is not required.
Certified Camp Staff (open to students and CCLS): The primary role is to enact the camp curriculum and lead and support campers. Online training is required (free to CCLS, reduced cost for CL students).
Mental Health Professional (CCLS only): The primary role of the mental health professional is to be a resource and support to children and staff during camp. In addition, should the need for additional or ongoing mental health support be assessed, the mental health professional will assist in providing contacts in the community for these ongoing services. Online training is required (free of charge for CCLSs) and a $500 stipend will be offered for full-week commitment to the camp.
