Opportunity Description:

Summer camps are the most active time to be involved with Zajac Ranch as hundreds of children have the opportunity to visit the camp during the summer months. Our mission is to provide a safe year round therapeutic environment for children and families faced with chronic illnesses and disabilities. We strive to empower our campers through recreational activities while their physical safety and medical well-being is maintained. Our volunteers, are an integral part of our team and help create the therapeutic environment for our campers. Our 24 hour medical centre, The OK Corral, provides care for every camper. Staffed by volunteer medical professionals who donate their time, children can receive medical care while experiencing the joys of summer camp. Zajac Ranch for Children provides not only relief for children, but also for the medical staff that care for them. Leaving typical medical institutions does amazing things for children who are dealing with life-threatening illnesses, and those around them are encouraged by their remarkable transformations.
