Balance 180 Summer Camp Hands-On Volunteer Opportunity!

Are you interested in working with children and having a fun summer camp experience? Balance 180 Gymnastics and Sports Academy, a local non-profit organization committed to integrating children with disabilities, is looking for college-aged volunteers to join our summer camp. This summer we are running our sixth integrated summer camp and are looking for volunteers that are excited to work with children with special needs!

Summer Camp 2019 will run from July 15th-August 2nd and promises to be a blast! Volunteers can join in the morning from 8:00am-12:30pm or in the afternoon from 12:30pm-5:30pm; however, these times can be adjusted to the volunteer’s schedule! No gymnastics experience is required to volunteer! Volunteers can sign up for any week or specific days: whatever works for their schedule! Most help is needed in the mornings 🙂

Our inclusive summer camp provides a great hands-on learning experience for student volunteers. Volunteers work 1-1 or 2-1 with participating campers (ages 3-15 years) in a wide range of activities, such as gymnastics, crafts, and games! Volunteers help athletes make new friends, learn new motor skills, and encourage the athletes to try new activities! Our athletes have a range of disabilities, including autism, Down syndrome, ADD/ADHD, and cerebral palsy, among others.

We are so excited to be offering our summer camp again and hope you will be able to join us and benefit from this learning experience! Attached is a flyer with additional details! Students who are interested can email Sanja Dizdarevic at balance180summercamp@gmail.com.
