Goodtimes Project seeking volunteers

Camp Goodtimes is a no-cost camp for kids impacted by childhood cancer living in Washington and Alaska. The camp itself is on Vashon Island, WA and our office is in Seattle. Our non-profit raises the money to put on 2 weeks of camp each summer for approximately 240 campers, and relies on volunteers to staff the camp.

We need to recruit 70+ volunteer staffers for each of our 1-week camp sessions and have had great success with university students looking to give back in their community. Though volunteering does not require medical background (we have RNs and MDs onsite to facilitate all medical needs of campers), we’ve found that camp is a great way for students to witness cancer patients outside the hospital setting.

Now accepting applications for summer 2017 volunteers. Applications must be submitted by March 1. Applications for fall 2017 will be accepted from February 1 to April 15, 2017.
