Easter Seals Nebraska is an organization that provides aide to individuals with disabilities and special needs and their caregivers. PIG has been asked to help out at their mini-camp respite weekends, which allows kids to experience the joys and challenges of camp in a fully-accessible setting. Campers gain independent and social interaction skills while participating in a variety of fun, adapted activities. AND their caregivers get a break to relax and recharge.

Volunteers have a blast from tossing water balloons to playing bean bags, and just talking with the kids at Camp Easter Seal. The counselors are incredibly appreciative of our time and the kids are so sweet, you would never know they had just met us hours before. These kids have a wide range of backgrounds and have so much to offer to us!

We have two volunteer opportunities: 1. Attend a half day (depending on what works for the majority of the people signing up) and help run games and activities for the campers. OR 2. Stay the whole weekend and be a one-on-one or two aide for the campers. This would require training as you would be helping the campers with daily life activities such as using the restroom, transferring in and out of chairs/bed, helping getting dressed, eating, etc.

April 26-28, 2013
