Camp Counselors Needed for Camp Starlight 2024!!

Hello, and thanks for your interest in Camp Starlight!

Camp Starlight is an amazing and rewarding volunteer experience. Camp provides a caring, safe and FUN camp experience for children whose lives are affected by HIV/AIDS. We offer all the best things: swimming, arts and crafts, s’mores, and loud, enthusiastic singing of camp songs, just to name a few. It is a week free from the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS and allows the kids to just be kids.

About camp

  • Volunteer dates for Camp Starlight 2023 are Aug. 17-23. The time commitment is for the full week. We arrive at camp in the morning on Saturday, Aug. 17 and leave in the afternoon on Friday, Aug. 23. You must be able to commit to the entire week.
  • We are recruiting for cabin counselors, who each are assigned to a group of kiddos in a particular age group. You can indicate your preferences for cabin assignment in our online application. We do our best to assign volunteers to the cabins that will be the best fit for them.
  • The week of camp is extremely busy. There is a lot of walking, playing, and general physical activity throughout the long days.
  • Camp is located outside Portland, OR. We don’t share the exact location broadly, in order to protect campers’ privacy.
  • If you live outside the Portland, OR area, it will be your responsibility to get yourself to Portland and arrange hotel/lodging accommodations that you may need the nights before or after camp. We can arrange carpools from Portland to camp and back to Portland after camp. We also can arrange pick-up/drop off from the airport as needed.
  • Taking care of the campers and keeping them safe is the volunteers’ primary concern. We are responsible for the kiddos’ safety and well-being while at camp, which means we focus 100% on them.
  • Camp is amazing. The kids are amazing. The volunteers are amazing. Camp will change your life.

This year, we strongly recommend the Covid-19 vaccine and boosters prior to arriving at Camp Starlight, but at this time we will not be requiring it. We will be administering a rapid test for all campers and volunteers attending camp, on either Saturday morning when volunteers first arrive or prior to getting on the bus or at the time of drop off for campers.

In order to keep our community as safe as possible, any camper or volunteer who has any symptoms of illness will be asked to not attend camp and/or be asked to be picked up early. We will still require masks in our medical area and will provide them for campers and volunteers as needed. If you have any questions, concerns, or special circumstances, please let me know. We are carefully monitoring public health guidelines and best practices and will provide any updates or changes as needed.
