"I volunteered with the Ellis School this summer as a one-on-one counselor and I was so impressed by their focus on developing the communication skills of every student, regardless of their ability. I saw tangible improvement in so many of the kids in just a week."

-Maggie, Camp ImpAACt 2017 Counselor

 

Volunteers  are essential to making this a memorable and incredible week! Every type of skill, ability, and talent is needed. We need help both inside and outside of camp week.

Those interested in working directly with a camper for the entire week as a one-on-one, please complete this form. One-on-ones must have complete availability for the entire week and we recommend having some background working with children with disabilities.

Those who’d like to be a general volunteer, should complete this form. General volunteers are not required to be at camp the entire week. Duties include a variety of tasks such as: providing extra support in groups, breaking down and setting up activities, preparing snacks, and any other tasks assigned by group leaders.

Direct any questions and requests more information by contacting Cristina Harty at Charty@elliscenter.org.
