Apply - Staff and Volunteers for Summer Adventure Camp 2018

We’re looking for counselors and volunteers for Summer Adventure Camp 2018! Variety St. Louis’ Adventure Camp is a free day camp that serves children and teens with special needs in the St. Louis area, and offers new adventures in a fun, safe environment.

As a volunteer or counselor, you will help contribute to this environment and will work one-on-one with a child or teen between the ages of 4 and 16 during Adventure Camp. During Teen Camp, you may work with teens between the ages of 14 and 20. Activities may include swimming, tennis, games, arts and crafts, music, ice skating, rock climbing, trips to St. Louis-area attractions and more!

Camp is located in a different place each day, which allows us to be flexible in our activities and excursions, but each location is in the St. Louis area. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. 

All counselors and volunteers must be available for training on May 31 and June 1. Available camp weeks are listed below, and can also be found and selected on the application form - you may select as few or as many weeks as you would like.
