By Carlee Fosco, AmeriCorps Volunteer Coordinator
I am thrilled to be filling the role of Volunteer Coordinator here at camp as of this fall. Our weekend sessions are in full swing, which means so is our volunteer program! Our volunteers at camp make it possible to serve the number of campers and families that we do each session. They also help to maintain the grounds by clearing brush, picking up litter, raking leaves, and various other tasks that help keep camp the best it can be.
I want to take time to recognize a great group of volunteers who came for our Veterans’ Family Camp on September 20-22. All 14 volunteers were from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse! Each and every volunteer did a great job connecting and interacting with our veterans and their families! The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse has been sending students to volunteer at Easter Seals for many years. Without our volunteers at camp, we would not be able to run as smoothly as we do. A big shout-out to the students and everyone who volunteers their time at Easter Seals Wisconsin Camps throughout the year.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at camp, we have several weekend camp sessions coming up! Please inquire by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
