Our camp volunteers are key to our camp community.  Volunteers provide necessary helping hands to camp staff during big events such as our balloon launch, talent show, and final show with tasks such as set-up, decorating, and “strike” (break-down) of the rooms and sets.

If you’re interested in volunteering for Hearts to Art 2019, please email [email protected] with your name and phone number. A member of our camp staff will be in touch this spring to discuss further details!

Partners / Guest Speakers

Our guest speakers are adults who have a shared experience with our campers — the loss of a parent at a young age.  We invite three guest speakers each session to share their stories, answer camper questions, and provide inspiration. If you, or someone you know, lost a parent before the age of 15 and would like more information on how you can support camp by sharing your story, please email [email protected] or call Sarah Illiatovitch-Goldman (Creative Engagement Associate) at 312.341.2353.
