SALT LAKE CITY — A camp for children with terminal illnesses is seeking volunteers to fill remaining positions for their upcoming season.

Camp Hobe is a specialized summer camp for children with cancer and their siblings. The camp allows participants to enjoy the outdoors, escape the confines of the hospital, and temporarily displace the fears of cancer treatment.

The camp is currently recruiting volunteers for the following summer 2013 camp sessions: June 9-14, Kids Week for campers age 6-12; June 16-21, Teen Week for campers age 12-19; and June 16-18, Day Camps for campers age 4-7.

Open positions include counselors, activity leaders, cooks, medical staff and lifeguards.

Volunteers may contact Chris Beckwith or Michelle Bunn at 801-631-2742 or info@camphobekids.org, or learn more at the Camp Hobe website, www.camphobekids.org.
