Camp Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering at camps for children and adults with special needs will give you valuable experience before you begin your education at Thomas Jefferson University. There is little like helping someone participate in the camper experience and engage in the fun activities that camps offer. We have collected a list of opportunities, but feel free to explore other alternatives as well.
