Description: Do you enjoy spending time with children and teaching them new things? Do you like experimenting with new techniques to make different art projects? By assisting with our Children’s Programs, you can explore various art techniques in their basic form while assisting camp participants. Our Camp Assistants help with various camps throughout the year including PA Day Camps, March Break Camp and our Summer Camps.

Commitment: Since training is involved to work with children, we ask that volunteers are available for multiple camps throughout the year. For the Camps, shifts are mutually agreed upon ranging from 8am – 2pm or 11am – 5pm. We encourage volunteers to sign up for the entire week for our week long camps so that the children are more familiar with the volunteers (i.e. one 6-hour shift each day, Monday - Friday for each week long camp).  Currently we are recruiting volunteers to assist with each of our 8 Summer Camp Sessions running Monday - Friday from July 2nd - August 23rd, 2019.  You can volunteer for one week long camp, some or all!
