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.

I have an older sister and two younger brothers. I'm currently a junior at the University at Buffalo. I'm majoring in Biomedical Sciences and minoring in Public Health. I also play quidditch and am president of Buffalo's quidditch team. My other hobbies include playing soccer and reading.
I began volunteering with Camp Good Days in the summer of 2015. I was already volunteering at the Children's Hospital and really enjoyed helping kids impacted by different diseases. I found about CGD and got involved to make more of a long-term impact.
I continue volunteering with CGD because of the smiles it brings! The campers are going through things no child should ever have to go through but CGD provides some refuge from their difficulties. That and the ice cream :)
Fun Fact: My nickname at Camp B&ST is Bob
