We are very fortunate that our camps are staffed entirely by volunteers and we are always in need of support from the community.
Camp STIX, our largest camp of 200 campers looks something like this: 72 medical volunteers including Medical Director, Education Director, and Medical Team members care for our campers 24/7. We have physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and many professional students to care for our campers. 41 kitchen volunteers make and serve healthy food. We have nutrition experts and cheerful kitchen helpers who plan menus, prepare the food, measure carbs and keep campers well fed. 92 program and support volunteers including Camp Director, Medical Director, Education Director, Program Directors, Crafts Directors, Director Assistants, Photographers, Lead Counselors, Counselors, and Junior Counselors who provide the fun activities and loving care to our campers. 15 Board Directors who work all year for camp. As well as vendors that provide us with tens of thousands of dollars in glucose meters, test strips, insulin, medical supplies, backpacks, and fun take-home items.
Yet many expenses remain.
Our volunteers make STIX possible. Whether you want to volunteer for a specific event, help with the auction or serve as a Camp Counselor, we need you! Once you experience the STIX community you will be forever changed while making an impact on the lives of youth living with T1D.Volunteer
