Therapeutic Recreation Volunteer
TR Camp Assistant Summer Volunteer. Are you a teen who's interested in teaching special education? Do you go to school with a student with a disability but didn't know how to approach him or her? You can gain valuable experience by providing general assistance and support in a Therapeutic Recreation camp designed for children with physical, developmental, or learning disabilities. You must be at least 14 by the start of the program session.
Teens can experience, first hand, the satisfaction of helping children with disabilities gain the most from their summer. You can enjoy, learn and contribute in giving a child with a disability the opportunity to intergrate into one of the summer camps, clinics or summer fun centers. You must be at least 14 by the start of the program session. If you want to volunteer for multiple sessions, please contact the volunteer coordinator Marco D'Ottavi. 240-777-6891
