Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp Applications
Applications are now available for the 2014 Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp. Applications must be submitted by March 14, 2014.
Please submit completed and signed applications, along with all requested materials,
to Jessie Cantrell via email at: email@example.com, fax to: 865.525.7917 or
mail to: Amputee Coalition, 900 E Hill Avenue, Suite 290, Knoxville, TN 37915.
The Amputee Coalition's Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp is a 5-day traditional summer camp experience for children ages 10-17 who have lost arms and/or legs or who were born with limb differences. The camp offers challenging activities that build campers' confidence regardless of skill level. A unique aspect of our program is that campers are not accompanied by their parents, which inspires campers to take on new challenges, be independent, test themselves and build new friendships in a supportive, caring environment.
Camp Leader in Training (CLT) Application:
The Camp Leader in Training is for youth ages 16 & 17 who are serious about becoming a Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp Counselor in the future. The youth accepted into this program will take on additional responsibilities and assist the cabin counselors. The training will take place on Friday, July 18. Once at camp, the CLT will be fully involved in the camp program along with the campers and counselors. Spaces are limited. To help us select the most appropriate and passionate CLTs, please submit an essay as to why you should be selected to the CLT program along with your application.
Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp Counselors play a vital role in the success of the camp. There are a limited number of counselor positions available; therefore, to help the committee select the most qualified candidates, please submit an essay as to why you should be selected to be a counselor along with your application. Counselors must be at least 19 years old by the start of camp.
