At times, we have girls come to camp who are self-care but need a little emotional or physical support. A laurel age buddy may be selected from their ward or stake that can come with this young girl to assist her with these needs. The laurel buddy is not required to pay. She is to be given the form below and must follow the directions listed there.
Laurel Buddy Responsibilities:
A Laurel Buddy’s primary responsibility is to stay with and assist her
assigned camper at all times under the direction of the counselor. This
may include the following:
• Helping camper get to the activities and making sure she stays
with her assigned counselor group.
• Helping camper to communicate appropriately with other
campers in the camp.
• Assisting with any physical or emotional needs of the camper, as
requested by her parent(s).
We strongly suggest that Laurel Buddies meet with the parents of their
campers to understand all the needs that might arise and how best to
help them at camp.
Because of the limited time allowed, Laurel Buddies may not have the
opportunity to participate in all activities. Campers will be given first
Thank you for providing this service to our special needs campers. They
would not be able to come otherwise!Laurel Buddy Responsibilities PDF
