Run, swim, kayak, and play with youth who in foster care, who are attending a one-week summer sleepaway camp with siblings who they have been separated from. In between roasting s’mores and making sure kids get from their bunkbeds to activities and meals safely, you’ll take in gorgeous Maine scenery, eat 3+ meals a day cooked by the facility, and meet incredible humans from all walks of life. And at the end of the week, you’ll return home with tan cheeks, an overflowing heart, and the knowledge you provided an irreplaceable service to campers, as for some of them this is the only week of the summer they see their brother or sister during the year.
Got goosebumps? Apply now! No experience with the foster care system is necessary – training on some basic background is provided during orientation, and after you apply Camp To Belong Maine will contact you to learn more about you, and give you the opportunity to ask questions!
