Volunteer Teen Counselor Positions Available

There are 20 teen counselor positions available for 2018, which will be an application process. Teens with food allergies, ages 14+, or a sibling of someone with a food allergy, ages 14+, may apply to become volunteer teen camp counselors. Camp TAG provides one counselor for every three children. We'd really like to see the teens apply for counselor positions because they can relate to the campers and act as mentors.

There is an activity fee of $50 for teen counselor positions at this site. Follow payment instructions above in the "Tuition & Payment" section. Teens may receive community services hours for their time, which averages about 35-40 hours for the week. If interested, please email Eleanor.Garrow@FoodAllergyAwareness.org for an application. Deadline to send in the volunteer teen counselor application is July 15, 2019.
