More than two decades ago, Paul Newman had a vision: imagine if children living with serious illnesses had the chance to simply be children. To just have fun. So he started a camp where kids could, in his words, “raise a little hell.” Today, we continue Paul’s legacy with SeriousFun Children’s Network, a growing global community of independently managed and financed camps and programs. Our dedicated team helps children and their families reach beyond illness to discover joy, confidence and a new world of possibilities—always free of charge.
Come join the fun and make a positive impact on children with serious illnesses. Whether you have a day, weekend, week or an entire summer, our camps offer a variety of volunteer opportunities. An integral part of making camp happen all around the world, our volunteers make up more than 50% of the adults that help run our camps; they come from all walks of life and defy all age, race, social, economic, and professional boundaries.
Each camp has a specific deadline based on their specific hiring needs. However, generally speaking, applications will be accepted from January to March. Interviews will begin in February and all staff will be accepted by May.
