Camp STAR, a children's bereavement service, is looking for volunteers/buddies to help at their camp on August 13-16.  Buddies are trained for 1 1/2 days prior to the arrival of the children and learn how to address any issues these children may be facing when they come to camp.  The children who attend are grieving the death of someone special in their lives, and they are paired with a buddy who will be with them constantly throughout the weekend camp.  It is an amazing experience for buddies, and we have many return volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out this  volunteer form.  If you have any questions, contact Cara Zanetti at czanettiupcbn@gmail.com.
