Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Camelot for Children!
We have many volunteer opportunities working with children at our events throughout the year and during our summer camp. We also have opportunities around our campus and within our administrative offices. All of our volunteers who will have contact with our Camelot children, must complete the application and if 18 or older obtain the required clearances.
Volunteers working with our children must be at least 14 years of age.
‘While Camelot’s core mission is helping children with disabilities and their families, there has been an amazing secondary benefit. Empathy and emotional intelligence is being fostered among our volunteer peer buddies. The bonds between our Camelot kids and their volunteer teen buddies is such a magical aspect of our program.

For 18 and older clearances are needed, below are the appropriate links.

Become a Camelot Family
Camelot for Children is welcoming new children age 6-19 years of age who have been diagnosed with terminal, chronic, or serious illnesses or disabilities looking for a place to be accepted.
Brothers and sisters in need of a place to be a kid, be understood, and be free to experience childhood without having to “worry” about protecting their sibling with special needs are encouraged to attend as well.
Each child < 19 years of age is paired with a one-on-one “buddy” who is a middle / high school / college volunteer.
Moms and dads, grandmothers and grandfathers, guardians and other loved ones experience respite, a feeling of normalcy and acceptance for their children, and a community that understands their journey.
Through generous donations all events are free to families.
