FAQs for Pediatric Oncology Weekend Volunteers

Who is eligible to volunteer?

We welcome volunteers college age-99 years old.

What types of volunteers are you looking for?

Counselors, doctors, therapists, educators, specialists (artists, sports, ropes, dance, music), and rabbis/cantors.

What is the time commitment?

  • 1 or 2 pre-camp virtual sessions
  • The weekend itself – April 25-27, 2025
  • 1 post-camp virtual debrief or survey

We are ideally looking for staff who can arrive in Palmer, MA on Thursday evening, April 24, and stay through Sunday afternoon April 27.  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.
