During the Summer Camp Program, participants can aid with check-in on Sunday afternoons and check-out on Friday afternoons.

Mid-term opportunities are available with the year round Respite Care Camp program, Summer Camp program (June – Aug) and Winter Camp program (operating during winter school break). Mid-term participants volunteer their services from Friday 5pm – Sunday5pm.

Long-term opportunities are also available with the Summer Camp program and participants would have the opportunity to volunteer their services for one week (Sunday 11:30am – Friday 5pm) to ten weeks.

On-call support is needed on a weekly basis beginning Friday 5pm and ending Sunday 5pm. As an on-call support, you would offer remote assistance to the program team working with the Respite Care program.
