Year Round Volunteering

Adam’s Camp assists every participating family by subsidizing 50% of the actual cost of attending camp. That’s right. We only charge half of the actual cost, so fund-raising is critical to our ability to provide life-changing intensive therapy and adventure camps.
Community volunteers work year-round to raise these funds. You can support Adam’s Camp by:

  • Serving on a special event committee
  • Volunteering at a special event
  • Create your own fundraising events though your networks of friends, work or faith communities

Office support is a great way to help our small staff! We can use volunteers throughout the year. Here are some of the various jobs to be done:

  • Data entry
  • Web and phone research
  • Filing
  • Mailings
  • Camp preparation projects
