The WNY Camp Good Days office holds monthly events for our Campers year-round. Since most of our events have parents dropping their children off for activities, we need lots of volunteers to act as chaperones. Not only do you get to join us on a bunch of fun outings, you are making a huge difference to a child affected by cancer.
All volunteers who work directly with our kids must be 18 years or older, have medical insurance and must pass a series of background checks. Acceptance into our program is at Camp Good Days' discretion. In addition to working with the Campers locally and/or at our Recreational Facility, we have the following volunteer opportunities:
Office Assistance, Special Events (Fundraisers, Awareness Campaigns), Gala Committee and Advisory Board. Please contact Shaylee Stribing to learn more about these volunteer opportunities.
New Volunteer Training is held every 1st Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Camp Office (6430 Transit Rd. Suite 200 Depew 14043). Interested volunteers MUST sign-up in advance. Please email Shaylee Stribing with the training date you'd like to attend.

Our volunteers in WNY make it possible for our programs and fundraising events to continue. Meet some of the volunteers who help us make a difference in the lives of some very special kids!
Jason and I live in Lancaster, with our daughter Gabby and our yellow lab Kona. We have some picky eaters in our house, so we eat lots of bread and pasta. We like to sing and have dance parties at home. Jason and I have been married for 13 years. I sing with the Buffalo Choral Arts Society, and was a Band Teacher for more than 10 years. Jason is a Software Engineer, and enjoys reading medical journals and spending too much time on electronic devices. We are blessed by loving families, who have been supportive through thick and thin.
In 2011, our 11 month old daughter Anna was diagnosed with brain cancer. Sadly a year later, the cancer took her from us. We are forever grateful for the support CGD offered Anna and our family. We volunteer for CGD in memory of Anna, and Jason's Dad Jeff Leavoy.
We continue to volunteer for CGD because it's fun! We love the people we've met and the kids and families we help in the process.
A fun fact about me is that I can curl my toes under my feet.
