Volunteer for Camp HOPE America - Chattanooga
Would you like to make a difference in the life of a child? We are looking for volunteers, age 18-24, who are interested in working with children and teenagers who have experienced trauma. This is an amazing opportunity to gain training in Trauma Informed Care and put it into practice as you spend time with our youth. You will build relationships with our children and teenagers as well as help them learn about hope and resilience.
Volunteers will serve as a camp counselor throughout monthly programs and summer camp. These activities will be outdoors as much as possible and they will typically be 2-3 hours in length. We will offer at least one weekend of camping during the spring for those able to attend. Expected volunteer time would be no more than 5 hours a month with the exception of a camping event.
Monthly activities will include: indoor archery, kayaking/canoeing, camping, aquarium visit, rock climbing, mountain biking, and more! This will lead us to a weeklong summer camp adventure!
