Volunteer Teen Counselor Positions Available

There are 16 volunteer teen counselor positions available for 2020, 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 1-3 counselors for every 5-9 children. We'd really like to see the teens apply for counselor positions because they can relate to the campers and act as mentors.

No tuition is required for volunteer teen counselor positions. 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 May 18, 2020.

Volunteer Teen Counselor application process will begin January 6, 2020!

Parent Education Session: 

A parent session will be offered at each Camp TAG location! We will have a three-hour parent session covering the latest in food allergy research and Q&A with a board-certified allergist, emotions/self-care/bullying issues with a behavioral health specialist, and civil rights advocacy in schools with FAACT's civil rights attorney.
