Volunteer Opportunities


We are currently accepting volunteers for our upcoming weekend camps. Volunteers commit to a full weekend of camp (Friday evening to midday Sunday or Monday).  Volunteers should enjoy being outdoors and working with people of all ages and abilities. Previous camp experience or working with individuals with disabilities is considered an asset.

Camp volunteers must complete a volunteer application form and provide a police record check (including vulnerable sector check) valid within the past year. Camp orientation and volunteer training are provided; accommodations and meals are included.

Family Camp: February 14-17

Family Camp is a wonderful opportunity to come and experience camp as it allows both campers and families to learn about camp and participate in all the programs and activities that we run!

This camp is open to all children with disabilities and special needs between the ages of 7-18 and their family.  New families are always welcome.

Spring Sleepover: March 21-23

For campers with physical/developmental disabilities ages 7-17 and one sibling or friend.  This camp is ideal for new or young campers who have never attended our Light Up A Life summer camp and is a great opportunity to sample what camp is all about.
