Get involve and give an unforgettable summer camp experience for children and adults with special needs

Volunteer camp projects

Camp Misquah needs volunteers to improve the camp’s infrastructure and supervise campers. This project will make a significant difference in campers’ lives and how they see the world. Volunteers will be trained on how to intervene with people who have an intellectual disability, which will allow them to support camp staff during activities.
