Volunteer Staff Opportunities

It is one of the most rewarding, life changing, impactful experiences you will ever have. There are so many things to learn and experience, so many ways to grow and change, and so many friends that you will make along the way

I use the knowledge I learned from camp every single day! Neurodiversity is everywhere, and it is important to understand that no matter where you go, you do not know what someone is going through

Camp AweSum is a respect-based, punishment-free environment. We operate under the philosophy that children will do well if they can, therefore they are supported to be successful. You will share in the campers’ joy and excitement as they learn new skills, gain confidence in being away from home and develop lifelong friendships.

Youth Camp

Camp AweSum Youth Camp provides a week long camp for children with autism spectrum conditions.  Counselors are required to support their assigned campers all day including eating all meals with their campers and sleeping in the cabin with their campers.  Counselors stay until campers depart and camp is packed up.

Family Camp

Camp AweSum Family Camp provides a week long camp for families with children on the autism spectrum.  Volunteer Counselors support all the children of the families (those on the spectrum and those not on the spectrum) for three hours each morning, one hour in the afternoon, and one evening during the week of camp.  Campers have all meals with their families.  Volunteer Counselors will have various afternoon hours.  Volunteer Counselor’s duties are finished after families leave and camp is packed up.  Youth volunteers under 18 MUST be accompanied by a group chaperone or guardian. The cost to cover volunteer meals and housing only is $290 for the week, the experience is priceless!
