Assist at Retreat for Families with I/DD

Wellness GIFTS is seeking individuals who will be a buddy to individual(s) with intellectual/developmental disabilities for a weekend (afternoon of June 18 through lunchtime of June 20, 2021). Assistants will be provided training and information about individuals in advance. Individuals range in age from 5-25. Assistants help engage in activities planned by the camp and activities on the campground, including arts & crafts, a talent show, swimming pool, gaga ball, basketball, playgrounds, bounce pillow, mini golf, and more! The bulk of activities are in a centralized location and Assistants often buddy up with another group to increase socialization and fun. 

GIFTS retreats were established for families with individuals with special needs, to provide the caregiver(s) respite from full-time caregiving, and to allow the family members to connect with others who are experiencing similar struggles. Being an Assistant is an incredibly rewarding experience!
