ART CAMP VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

Camp Erin South Florida, is a children’s grief camp for ages 6-17 years old, is having its first camp of the year during the last weekend of this month, Feb. 27 – Mar. 1st in Homestead, FL. While at camp the children get to engage in many interactive activities, including art therapy, music therapy, nature walks, camp fires, games, and much more. Right now Camp Erin is looking for artists who would be interested in supporting the camp as a volunteer in the following ways:

· Advising with ideas for quick “walk by” art projects for the children to contribute to while at camp (any age)

· Coming to observe camp for 2-3 hours during our weekend and then going home to create a piece inspired by their time at camp to donate for auction at our fundraisers in the fall (any age)

       o For this the person would also attend the fundraiser where their piece would be displayed
          so that the attendees can meet the artist

· Assisting with art-based activities at camp (must be 18+)

This is a great opportunity for artists who have a passion for giving back and it will also allow them to make themselves visible in the community among many important people at our fundraising events. For more information you can visit our website at CampErinSouthFlorida.org. Anyone interested in volunteering can complete a volunteer application, which Camp Erin will provide upon request.

If you have any questions or would like more materials, please contact Ann McLemore!
