When is camp?

Camp STIX is held once yearly usually during the end of June. Check our "Upcoming Events" on the homepage for exact dates. The volunteer staff starts camp 2 days earlier than the campers for orientation and training.

Camp TWIGS is also held once yearly, usually in July or August over a 3-day weekend. Volunteers typically arrive a few hours ahead of campers for orientation and setup. 

Measures for Success

Can my friend or sibling come with me to camp?

Space permitting, non-diabetic friends and siblings are welcome to register for Camp STIX, although priority will be given to campers with diabetes. Be sure to have your friend or sibling sign up by the deadline!

I would like to volunteer at camp--are staff members paid?

Payment is abundant in smiles, hugs, and a ton of amazement watching the transformation of some remarkable kids.  There is no monetary compensation but room, board, and T-shirt costs are all covered.

STIX is "community-owned" meaning that all funds are raised in the community and camp is administered and run with 100% volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering for Camp STIX, please visit our Volunteer Registration page to begin your volunteer application process.

When is the deadline for staff applications?

Each year we are looking for volunteers to help us in the kitchen (DISH), on our medical team (MASH) and on our program staff.  Our application process for volunteers is through this website.  We'd love to have you apply -- it's a great opportunity for service and for joy!
