"We developed this camp for Anna’s House because we want homeless children to have a great learning opportunity during the summer as well as a fun camp to enjoy. During the last week of camp, we will host a carnival, packed with games and activities that our Happy Campers will create. We chose Anna’s House because we are inspired by their faith-based foundation and because We Cancerve wants to help as many homeless children as possible."

We are looking for young people who have a love for children and watching them blossom, and who are willing to spend their summer in an exciting and fulfilling role as Camp Counselors. Camp is typically one week Mon-Thurs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. but Covid has altered where we offer camp and how many counselors we need. Our positions are non-paid, and open to mature high school students. Counselors are required to participate in training. Check out what other counselors had to say about interning with us.
If you're a business owner, a nonprofit organization or a service provider, there's an opportunity for you to help make Happy Campers smile. Whether it's donating products, services or discounts to your place of business, we'd love to work with you. Please complete our Camp Supporter Form and check out our wish list.
