Teen Volunteers Sought For Summer Adventures Day Camp

Local teenagers are invited to volunteer as Summer Adventures day camp counselors. The program, now in its 7th year, serves children ages 6-11. The camp, located on the Rancho Los Cerritos Historic site, runs in three week-long historically themed sessions, beginning on July 14th.


Interested teens must attend a Teen Volunteer Opportunities Meeting on Wednesday, June 25th. Meetings will be held from 10 AM to 11:30 AM, or from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM. Completed paperwork must be submitted by noon on the following day. If selected, teens must attend a mandatory training session on Wednesday, July 9th from 9 AM to 3:30 PM, and commit to volunteering for one week-long camp session.


Summer Adventure campsare designed to allow today’s urban children to learn about history by ‘doing’ history.   A typical Summer Adventures camp includes so many fun experiences that the participants barely recognize how much they’re learning. Teen volunteers will assist children with craft projects and activities, including stomping mud, sculpting with clay, planting seedlings, making bird houses, designing brands, churning butter, making tortillas, dipping candles, and weaving bookmarks. Each week will have a slightly different focus, and present a different set of activities, providing a unique experience for both children and teens who attend multiple weeks.


“This remarkable volunteer opportunity allows teens to complete meaningful service-learning work,” notes Volunteer Coordinator Jan Shafer, “so it is something that looks great on college applications, while simultaneously helping teens develop their self-confidence and unique talents.  Both of these are noteworthy advantages to today’s high-school students.”


Rancho Los Cerritos is located at 4600 Virginia Road in Long Beach.  Built in 1844, the adobe home and grounds echo with the rich history of Spanish, Mexican, and American California and with the families who helped transform Southern California from its ranching beginnings to the modern, urban society it is today. The two-story Monterey-style adobe is primarily furnished to reflect occupants and lifestyles from the 1860s-1880s.


The site, a National, State and Long Beach Historic Landmark, also includes historic gardens and a research library and archives. The Rancho is operated by the Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation in private-public partnership with the City of Long Beach.  For more information please call (562) 570-1755, or visit the website at www.rancholoscerritos.org and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/rancholosc.
