Volunteer Experiences

“Camp MATES is such an amazing organization to volunteer with, you are able to meet and work hands-on with awesome kids who have high-functioning Autism or other developmental disabilities. Personally, volunteering with Camp MATES was the highlight of my summer because seeing the kids smile and learn new things is such a priceless experience!” – Camp MATES Volunteer
