PALS Programs is a national nonprofit hosting week-long overnight summer camp programs on college and university campuses across the country. Our programs pair Partners with Down syndrome 1-1 with Peer volunteers, who share a dorm room together throughout the week and participate in a variety of on- and off-campus activities. PALS has 19 locations nationally including our New York Program will take place at Fordham University from June 25-July 1, and we are recruiting Peer volunteers ages 18+ to join us! You can view our full list of dates and locations HERE.
There is no cost for Peers to attend camp and travel reimbursement is offered to those who need to travel to our camp location. Up to 100 hours of volunteer service can be earned through serving a week with us! Our Peers take their PALS experience with them in their personal and professional lives, often joining us for many summers. Our application to apply is now open and can be found HERE. Any questions can be directed to Lauren at email@example.com. Check out this video to see some of the PALS magic in action -- We hope to see you at camp!
