FAQs for Bereavement Weekend Volunteers

Who is eligible to volunteer?

We welcome volunteers college age and older.

What types of volunteers are you looking for?

Counselors, mental health professionals, rabbis, cantors, educators, and specialists (artists, sports, ropes, dance, music etc)

What is the time commitment?

  • 1 or 2 pre-camp virtual sessions
  • The weekend itself – November 1-3, 2024
  • 1 post-camp virtual debrief or survey

We are ideally looking for staff who can arrive in Palmer, MA on Thursday evening, October 31, and stay through Sunday afternoon November 3.  We recognize this timing may not work for everyone and will be happy to discuss on an individual basis.

Will I be reimbursed for travel expenses?

Yes.  While the weekend will be staffed with volunteers, we do not expect you to pay for travel out of your own pocket.  All travel expenses must be pre-approved.
