We are always looking for dedicated volunteers. Volunteers are a large part of our program and add to the success of our program. They bring an extra spark of energy to the staff and students. Together we work to create a fun and educational environment for students all year long. Volunteering is also a great way to gain community service hours, add to a resume or school application, make new friends, gain new skills, and help others. You will be able to choose to volunteer at either locations this summer: PS 244 or PS 120. We hope you’ll join our team!
The camp dates this year are July 5th to August 17th, 2018.
You must be able to work at least 6 of the 7 weeks.
Morning shift is 8:00AM to 1:00PM.
Afternoon shift is 1:00PM to 6:00PM.
You must be able to work the full week Monday to Friday in one of those shifts.
If you must arrive a few minutes late because of a test prep class we can be a little flexible.
For those of you who aren't familiar with us, our camp filled with cute kids, fun activities, central air conditioning, staff social outings, field trips and shenanigans. COLOR WARS IS BACK and better than ever!! All camp counselors are divided up into teams to compete in ridiculous events and win prizes. Events will force you to compete in a variety of challenges that will test your creativity, athleticism, intellectual wit, and oral presentation abilities. If you're a shy quiet type of person that gets embarrassed easily, this may not be the best place for you.
