Summer Camps

Camp Helping Hands is a four-week program that provides fun and educational service-learning opportunities within several different segments of our community. Each summer program has an overarching theme, and each week of programming supports that theme. For CHH campers to receive the full benefits of service-learning, it is important to embrace this four-week approach, though one, two, and three-week options are available. In addition to each week’s service projects** and field trips, CHH campers also swim, play sports activities and games, sing songs, do arts and craft projects, and much more.

CHH places campers according to age into four age groups: Junior Helpers (6 and 7), Young Advocates (8 and 9), Super Agents (10 and 11), and Chief Aides (12 and 13***). Each group contains 15 to 17 campers and is led by three counselors who guide them through age-appropriate activities. Chief Aides, our oldest age group, are Jr. counselors-in-training (Jr. CIT’s). In addition to participating in camp activities like our younger campers, they assist team counselors and camp administration with tasks as needed.

*One-week session options are available.

**Activities, field trip destinations, and service partners are subject to change.

***Campers 14 years of age entering their freshman year in high school can also participate in the Jr. CIT program.
