Volunteer at Camp PALS


National (see all locations here)

Summer opportunity! PALS Programs creates inclusive summer camp experiences for young people with Down syndrome and their peers. Participants with Down syndrome are paired one-to-one with a peer without Down syndrome, and together they build transformative, lifelong friendships while learning the true meaning of inclusion. Our programs are held on college campuses across the country and typically run between the months of June to August. Programming includes a dynamic blend of unique on-campus activities, and off-campus trips to explore local sites and attractions, while participants experience life on a college campus. No experience is needed to participate in a PALS program, and all are welcome and encouraged to join us. Please visit palsprograms.org for a current list of our program dates and locations, and to complete our participant application.

Contact PALS at support@palsprograms.org if you have any questions. We hope to see you this summer at Camp PALS!
