PALS Programs is a national nonprofit hosting week-long overnight summer camp programs on college and university campuses across the country. Our programs pair Partners with Down syndrome 1-1 with Peer volunteers, who share a dorm room together throughout the week and participate in a variety of on- and off-campus activities and trips.

PALS has 19 locations nationally including Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD, Philadelphia, PA and Richmond, VA, and we are recruiting Peer volunteers ages 18+ to join us! Our Richmond camp is taking place from June 25th -July 1st at Virginia Commonwealth University. You can view our full list of dates and locations at www.palsprograms.org/summer-2023.

There is no cost for Peers to attend camp and travel reimbursement is offered to those who need to travel to our camp location. Up to 100 hours of volunteer service can be earned through serving a week with us!

Our Peers take their PALS experience with them in their personal and professional lives, often joining us for many summers. Apply today to snag your spot at camp! Any questions can be directed to Lauren at support@palsprograms.org. Check out this video to see some of the PALS magic in action -- We hope to see you at camp!
