Camp Courage is staffed by volunteers including doctors, nurses, social workers, physical and occupational therapists, fire service personnel, teachers, and other professionals. Many of the staff are burn survivors themselves, a few were even campers at one point. The qualified staff participates in various professional development, team-building, and training sessions designed to prepare them to deal with the specific needs of burn survivors. This results in a highly dedicated group of volunteers.
Each year we need volunteers for the following positions: Counselors (guide campers through all activities all week); Ropes Crew (be a part of the ropes course, challenge course, archery or rifles); Art and Crafts (help campers express themselves creatively); and, Lifeguards (for the swimming pool and Lake Day).
