Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Camp P.L.A.Y. at The Center for Medically Fragile Children (CMFC). It is only with the support of our community that we are able to maintain a high level of quality and care in this extraordinary program. It is important that our potential volunteers have an understanding of CMFC so that an informed choice about their level of involvement can be made. We would like to take this opportunity to share with you a bit about us and Camp P.L.A.Y.
CMFC is the only pediatric facility in the Northwest to offer skilled long-term nursing care 24 hours a day for children and young people ages infancy to twenty-one. 40 beds are available for children with complex medical needs who require long-term or respite care. The volunteers and staff at CMFC offer an extension to their family and give children opportunities to play, laugh and learn through our efforts. It is a profound experience for volunteers.
Camp P.L.A.Y (Providing Laughter and Adventure for youth), is a special summer time opportunity for our children only possible through the commitment of volunteers! During an exceptional week you will work with Therapeutic Recreation staff and help the children enjoy a full array of summer fun, including field trips, theme related visitors, sensory stimulation, and play. These activities and outings are designed to be great fun as well as encourage the children to reach their highest abilities.
There will be 9 Camp Play sessions beginning the week of June 10th, each lasting one-week, Monday–Friday. We ask that volunteers arrive at 12:15 pm on Mondays for a quick orientation, tour and review the upcoming week. The hours are Monday to Thursday 12:30pm to 2:30 pm and Friday 12:30pm to 3:00pm but could go until 3:30pm due to field trips using the MAX.
