AUGUST 6 – 9, 2020 | Payson, Arizona

Camp “Can Do” is a four-day camp for adult survivors of brain injury.  A signature program of the Brain Injury Alliance of Arizona, for over 10 years Camp Can Do has helped survivors of serious brain injury have interactions with nature, form lifelong friendships, and enjoy independence from caregivers. Camp is a life changing experience for many. Physical and occupational therapy students serve as volunteers at camp and are able to gain real world experience assisting campers and facilitating recreation and social activities appropriate for those with cognitive challenges.

VOLUNTEER APPLICATION

50%
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Brain Injury Alliance of Arizona’s Camp Can Do 2019. This is a wonderful event and the volunteers have as much fun as the campers, while working long, but rewarding hours. Here are some details you will want to make note of:
  • Camp Can Do 2019 will be from Thursday, August 8th– Sunday, August 11th.  Volunteers will need to make themselves available for the entire duration of camp unless prior arrangements have been made with the Camp Director. Volunteers going in and out of camp disrupts the experience for the campers and is difficulty for scheduling purposes. It is also costly for the organization as we must pay for your meals and lodging for the whole weekend.
  • Volunteers need to report to camp at Whispering Hope Ranch in Payson at noon on Thursday the 8th. A volunteer orientation will happen from noon- 1pm. Please bring a sack lunch or eat prior to your arrival. Volunteers are able to leave camp at noon on Sunday the 11th.
  • The volunteers typically start around 7am in the morning and work until around 10 pm at night. While you will be having fun in the process, it is a long day with a lot of walking, coordination of events and assisting the campers.
  • There is a Camp Director on site.  If you have any questions prior to the volunteer call please contact the BIAAZ office and ask for the Camp Coordinator or Operations Coordinator 602-508-8024. The Camp Director will be your main contact for volunteering activities, scheduling, etc. during camp.
  • Clothing requirements and any lingering questions will be discussed at the CAMP CAN DO VOLUNTEER MEETING at BIAAZ Office on Saturday, May 11thfrom 12-1pm. A list of things to bring and clothing requirements will be provided to you before camp. Please do not bring your short shorts to camp. Athletic cut, longer shorts are appropriate attire.
  • Many of the volunteers sleep in the same cabins as the campers. The majority of the beds are bunk beds and we try to keep people from having to sleep on the top bunks, but be aware that this may be a possibility. We don’t allow the campers to sleep on the top bunks due to safety reasons. Cabin assignments are based on needs of the campers. You can ask to be in the same cabin as other volunteers, but we cannot guarantee this request.
  • There is no cost for the volunteers, but we do ask those that can provide $45.00to help cover your background check even if you have a finger print clearance card.
  • You will be responsible for transportation to the camp located outside of Payson (whisperinghoperanch.org) but we do request that you carpool if possible due to limited parking. We will provide the directions.
  • While we understand emergencies happen, please only commit to volunteering if you are certain you’ll be able to do so. We depend on every volunteer to ensure the best experience for the campers and if we have less volunteers that can cause the other volunteers to have to work harder, which creates issues for the campers.

We will do our best to accommodate requests but will notify you if there are any issues related to the request.
