Due to the nature of the camp, Camp SMILE requires that all overnight volunteers be CPR/First Aid certified and that they attend a 3-day training session on working with individuals with disabilities prior to camp. Both of these are offered to volunteers at minimal to no cost at all.

A CPR/First Aid class is offered on two different occasions for a minimal cost of $25.00. Both classes will be held at Fortis College, located at 7033 Airport Blvd., Mobile, AL 36608. If you have current CPR/First Aid certification, you need not take it again, simply mail in a copy of your certification.
