Camp PALS welcomes applications for individuals between the ages of 16-30. Volunteer counselors are paired one-to-one with Campers with Down syndrome and spend the week on teams at college campuses as they build new friendships, explore new regions, and take part in dynamic programming.

            Counselors have no out-of-pocket costs during the week other than transportation to and from Camp. Applicants should be ready to be both challenged and inspired.
