Volunteer Information for Companions and staff

Companion Information

For every child/camper who registers with our program, a one-on-one companion is assigned. Being a companion is extremely rewarding and many companions have served for several years. As a Companion, You offer friendship and love to a boy or girl through fun activities. By committing a little time, you can bring a great deal of joy into a young life. A companion’s dedication and commitment is the backbone of our program. A companion is expected to have fun and to fully participate in all the activities their assigned camper chooses and to be a positive role model for the camper.

Companion Requirements:

  • At least 18 years of age at camp time.

  • Provide two (2) references.
  • Pass a "Police Record Check".
  • Complete a personal interview in Freehold, NJ
  • Complete a full day of Training on Saturday, May 22, 2010 in Freehold, NJ
  • Must be willing to wait until June 10, 2010 for an acceptance decision. This is the end of a process that will lead us to knowing how many companions are needed, and what personal skills and characteristics are required. The selection of companions is driven by the number of campers, the camper's physical and emotional condition, and the camper's personal interests. We make a special effort to ensure that the process of pairing a companion with a camper is done with the camper's best interest in mind.
  • Staff Volunteers

    Our need for staff volunteers is limited. However, we do have a need for staff volunteers on our management team to support many of the programs for kids with cancer. A staff volunteer must have an ability to manage multiple tasks and personnel, possess effective communication and people skills, motivated to dedicate time to a charitable cause, and attend monthly management meetings in the Freehold, NJ area.
