3 Days 40 Campers
Header Home

The Sheilah A. Doyle Foundation is currently seeking 55 volunteers to participate in our camp being held from September 11th, 2014 through September 13th, 2015 at Camp Manitoqua in Frankfort, IL.

We are looking to fill the following positions:

Big Buddy - Adults who can give a weekend of their time to camp. Big Buddies serve as the child’s role model, mentor and anchor for the weekend and take part in all aspects of camp along side their camper, or Little Buddy.  The Big Buddy role is the most intensive volunteer role, but often the most rewarding.

Healing Circle Assistant - Healing Circle Assistants are responsible for assisting the Healing Circle Leaders and offering support for the Big Buddies. They organize each group’s supplies and help supervise the campers during Big Buddy break and evening staff meetings.
Nurse - Two registered nurses are needed onsite for the entire camp weekend (including overnight), to assist with any medical needs and to administer prescription medications to the campers. Camp Nurses must be available during camper registration too.

Junior Counselor - Junior Counselors must be at least 15 years old.  Jr. Counselors serve as the bridge between the campers and adults, act as role models for the campers, and participate in camp activities. Junior Counselors assist with supervising campers during Big Buddy breaks, evening staff meetings and in the cabins. They serve as mature yet fun-loving role models for the campers.

Floater - Floaters assist behind the scenes at camp, from helping with volunteer and camper registration, to setting up camp activities.
Camp Photographer - The Camp Photographer takes candid pictures throughout the weekend as well as posed Big and Little Buddy photos for each camper to take home on Sunday.

Note: All Camp Volunteers must attend a six-hour homicide training session and complete a background check prior to camp.
