Camp STAR: Volunteer as a Camp Buddy

Camp STAR is a children's bereavement camp that will be held August 9-11, 2019 at Bay Cliff Health Camp, with a one-day training on August 8 for volunteers. Camp STAR is currently recruiting Camp Buddies:

Camp Buddies are adults 18-25 years of age who are active and can commit to 1 day of training followed by a weekend of camp. The buddy will be paired one-on-one with a child who is the same gender and has similar interests. The buddy will be the child’s guide for the weekend and participate in all events alongside the camper. The buddy will model appropriate behavior and coping skills for the child.

The buddy does not need an experience with loss, but it certainly helps. Buddies are required to fill out an application, go through a background check, face-to-face interviews, and 1-day training. We look for buddies who are supportive, empathetic, and energetic and who may have experience in one or a few of the following things: grief, growth and development, psychology, outdoor recreation, education, counseling, social work, community health and health care.

The volunteer application can be found here:
