Opportunity Description: Purpose: Our volunteers empower children, youth and families living with HIV/AIDS. Our volunteers bring diverse experience and various backgrounds to Camp Laurel and are strong, unique role models for our campers and help our campers become strong, confident, positive individuals.

This includes all prescription and over-the-counter medications. • Assess and provide treatment for acute injuries/illnesses (as allowed by license). • Medical volunteers should not hesitate to interact with campers in a fun, relaxed way (e.g. play games, join in and have fun, etc.) • Capacity to deal with highly stressful (physically and emotionally) situations with composure. Minimum Qualifications: • LVN, RN, NP, PA or MD with current CA medical license. • Desire and ability to work with children in the outdoors. Prior experience working with children beneficial. • Have no hesitations about working with children or adults with HIV/AIDS. • Ability to relate to one’s peer group and work well with people from diverse backgrounds. • Ability to accept supervision, guidance, and constructive feedback. • A positive role model for children and peers (exemplary character, good judgment, approachable, etc.) • Possess enthusiasm, patience, and high degree of self-control. How to apply: In order to be a volunteer for Camp Laurel you need to complete an application and interview process. To get started contact Dana Ruble, Director of Volunteers, at druble@camplaurel.org or 626-683-0800. More information can also be found on the website at www.camplaurel.org. Priority will be given to applications received by December 21, 2007 for Winter Camp 2008. Time Commitment: Camp is a residential camp. Which involves a 24 hr commitment at a 5 or 7-day camp. Winter Camp 2008 will be February 14-18, 2008; Summer Camp will be July 5-12, 2008 and Teen Adventure Camp August 2-9, 2008. Benefits: “The kids at Camp Laurel are unlike any I’ve encountered before. I’ve never met such a spirited, enthusiastic, entertaining, intelligent, and loving group before in my life.” “Camp Laurel has made such a positive impact on my life. It has given me the opportunity to meet such wonderful people; campers, counselors, and staff. It has given me a sense of doing something that really matters and makes a difference…It is life changing because it makes you really put your life into perspective and realize what in life is important.”
