Volunteer Opportunities


United Cerebral Palsy – Life without Limits Day Camp - The United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) offers three different and fun-filled camps for children ages 6 to 21 years old with the support of the United Way.  One camp is the Life without Limits Day Camp.  Volunteers are paired with a child who has a disability and accompany that child throughout the day at the camp.  As the campers renew friendships, participate in craft activities, utilize the UCP computer lab and go into the community on field trips, the volunteer is a constant companion for the camper.  Field trips will be educational and recreational, including visits to historical sites, behind the scenes tours of their favorite stores, and bowling.  A volunteer can sign up for just one week, certain days, or all summer.  The Life without Limits Camp meets at the UCP center for students 6 to 21 years old who have any type of disability.  Camp runs Monday thru Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. starting on June 20 and ending on August 5.
