Due to the nature of the camp, Camp SMILE requires that all overnight volunteers 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.

If you have any questions about camp or the schedule, you may contact UCP at anytime. However, we offer an Open House at Camp where you can receive a tour and have many questions answered. We will also schedule interviews for each prospective volunteer and you may ask questions then as well. Click to view a counselor job description.
