Volunteer Teen Counselor Positions Available

There are 14 teen counselor positions available, 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.

Teens receive community services hours for their time, which averages about 35-40 hours for the week. Teen counselors will be notified once applications are reviewed. Once accepted, there is a $75 activity fee for teen counselors to be paid via FAACT's secured PayPal (please do NOT pay this fee until the teen application has been approved).

Download the teen counselor/health form starting January 2, 2023.

Email all completed forms to Eleanor.Garrow@FoodAllergyAwareness.org

Deadline to send in the volunteer teen counselor application is July 14, 2023.
