Volunteer: Camp Holiday Trails

Friday, Mar 12, 2021

Since 1973, Camp Holiday Trails has relied on the time, talent and treasure of hundreds of community volunteers and partners.  Join them as together we work to improve the quality of life for children and teens with medical needs.

Volunteer Opportunities (including, but not limited to)

Contactless volunteering:

Although we had to cancel our in person programs for this summer, CHT is finding ways to support our community through donations of food and medical supplies, offering our outdoor spaces for contact-less, family-friendly volunteer activities, opening our Camp Kitchen to community groups and more.

Contact Tina@campholidaytrails.org for more information.

Horse volunteers:

One important activity that depends on Day Volunteers is the Horse Program. The Horse Program at Camp Holiday Trails provides a safe and nurturing environment where campers can spend time with the horses, learn about their care, and enjoy riding in the ring or on the trail, and in so doing, experience the physical, social, and emotional benefits from interacting with our volunteers and our special Equine Partners.

Horses Love Camp, Too!
Camp Holiday Trails welcomes donations of time with your horse. Your horse will receive excellent care and lots of love each day from our campers and volunteers. If you have a horse you would like considered as an Equine Partner for our summer season Horse Program, please contact us at horses@campholidaytrails.org

Community volunteers:

Every other day in the summer, all of our Campers and Counselors come together to participate in WOW (Working on Wellness) Hour. This one-hour activity not only unites us, but also introduces both Campers and staff to new experiences and healthy hobbies. For each WOW Hour, we invite local community members to share a special skill or talent with our Camp Family. Some past WOW Hours have been: juggling lessons, water aerobics, martial arts, a visit with therapy dogs, improvisational acting class, and line dancing. 

Introducing our Campers to healthy hobbies is especially important: children with special medical needs can have difficulty finding activities adapted for their needs, and sometimes struggle to find the confidence to join activities that can improve their physical, mental, emotional, or social wellness. With your help, we can expose our Campers to all kinds of activities that they are not only able to partake in, but are inspired to continue beyond summer.
