Camp Geronimo 2019

Week 3: Jul 29th - August 2nd

Camp Geronimo is a summer day camp offered to children with disabilities between the ages of 6 and 12 years old. The camp gives children the opportunity to engage in animal-assisted activities, meet new friends, get to know The Barn's animals and participate in activities designed to build communication and sensory integration skills. Camp Geronimo is directed by a licensed physical therapist, and provides a one-to-one counselor to child ratio. If you would like to have fun while making a difference in the lives of some amazing children, volunteering for Camp Geronimo would be a great opportunity for you! We rely heavily on the support of volunteers to make sure that every child is appropriately supported and safe at Camp Geronimo. The positions we have available are as follows:
