General Information

Agency Name:
Easter Seals Greater Houston
Description:
Easter Seals Greater Houston provides services to individuals with disabilities and their families throughout the greater Houston area. Easter Seals offers a number of camps throughout the summer and school year for children and young adults with disabilities. Our two summer camps are currently looking for awesome new volunteers!
Camp Smiles is a week-long overnight camp for children ages 6-14 with cerebral palsy. Our volunteers get to work one on one with a camper and act as their caregiver for the week! Each day, our campers participate in AWESOME activities such as archery, canoeing, horseback riding, and even zip-lining! Our dates for this upcoming summer are June 30th-July 6th. Our camp is hosted by Camp For All, an adapted facility in Burton, Texas.
Camp Buckaroo is a week-long day camp for children ages 6-14 with disabilities and their siblings. Volunteers work one on one with a camper and act as their buddy for the week. Each day has a different theme like "Out in the Wild" or "A day at the beach!" We have fun activities like arts & crafts, group games, and even special guests and shows! We host 5 different sessions of Buckaroo throughout the Houston area, so volunteers can pick the date and location that best fits their schedule.
