Wellness GIFTS, Inc. is seeking teams and individuals to volunteer to support families during their June 18-20, 2021 camping retreat in Bath, NY. The retreats provide a break for families caring for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities — a much needed break after a pandemic year of canceled outings, respite providers, activities, and staffing shortages!
Volunteer “Assistants” buddy with individuals approximately ages 5-25 to engage in arts & crafts, socialization, campground recreational activities, and preparation for the much-loved annual talent show. Assistants might also be assigned to spend time with siblings of individuals with special needs. Though Assistants partner with 1-2 individuals, the activities are centralized at the campground, allowing continual support from other Assistants as well as GIFTS leadership.
Assistants are the heart of Wellness GIFTS, supporting individuals and families for 19 years! Contact us at (607) 684-3243 or visit wellnessgifts.org for more information!
