CampEnergy! offers a one week opportunity for adolescents to learn and practice healthy habits and this provides an active learning environment for volunteer counselors as well when they become ‘health coaches’ for the week. We are specifically in need of males who are interested in volunteering to stay in the boys’ cabins for one week this August.
For example, students interested in nutrition can help campers personalize nutrition plans at camp and at home and help lead nutrition education sessions while working with a registered dietitian. A kinesiology major may help campers modify physical activities to their ability and set exercise goals while working with a collegiate swim coach trained with a Masters in Physical Education & Health. Students interested in behavioral health can learn how factors impact health and weight in adolescents while they work with campers individually under the guidance of a pediatric psychologist.
This is also a great opportunity to build a resume through experience, service hours, and letters of recommendation preparing for graduate school.
Camp ENERGY is a nonprofit that offers camp once a week each year and is able to keep costs low for families through the generous time of an all-volunteer staff and community donors.
