Summer Camp Volunteer Opportunities
Who can volunteer?
Anyone, 16 years or older, who can donate a week of their time and energy. No previous experience is necessary, just a willingness to help. Ask about Horizon’s community service hours program.
What if I don’t have any experience assisting adults with disabilities?
Several orientation sessions are held prior to camp to help prepare new volunteers. Topics include expectations of volunteers and participants (campers), roles & responsibilities at camp, daily routine, rules & regulations, etc. Once at camp, a more detailed orientation session is held. At this time the roles and expectations of individual camper & volunteer pairs are discussed.
How do I volunteer?
Please contact our volunteer recruitment committee on the hotline to request an application or apply online. All participants are required to submit an application by the deadline date. Volunteers under 18 years of age are required to have the consent of an adult or legal guardian.

Other Horizon Volunteer Opportunities
As a volunteer organization Horizon needs help raising funds, recruiting campers/volunteers and planning our Summer Camp Program. For more information on Horizon Committees or call the Horizon Hotline.
Over the years, Horizon has benefited by generous donations from local businesses. Horizon often needs individuals to help pick up these items and deliver them to camp.
Throughout the year Horizon holds events that need volunteers to assist in setting up and cleaning up afterward. Some of these events include the Golf Outing & Banquet, Candlelight Bowl and Spaghetti Dinner.
