Become a Companion or Volunteer
What really makes Camp Quality is unique is that a one-on-one companion is assigned to every child who registers for summer camp. Companions must be a minimum of 18 years of age. Their dedication and commitment is the backbone of our program. In order to be a companion, you will need to:
- Complete an application form
- Submit three reference forms
- Pass a background check
- Complete a face-to-face interview
- Be invited to participate as a volunteer at Camp Quality
- Complete mandatory volunteer training
- Accept the obligations of Camp Quality
A camper's "best friend for the week" is their Camp Quality Companion. The caring and supportive relationship between the pair begins at camp, and continues to be fostered throughout the year. In many cases, Camp Quality kids develop such strong friendships with their quality companions that they ask to be matched up year after year.
Camp Quality Companions come from all walks of life--teachers, college students, lawyers, young professionals, retired professionals, police officers, firefighters. Quality companions must be willing to invest their time, energy and heart into the experience of their camper . . .but the return is priceless.
No special skill or medical training is needed. We seek caring adults who want to build a friendship with a special child. Companions are fun to be with, adventuresome, great listeners and are always sharing their love for life.
In addition, a wide variety of staff are required for every camp. Volunteers are needed in areas such as crafts, food service, special programming, and medical.
