POLAND — Easter Seals Massachusetts is looking for volunteers to work in its summer camping program for children and young adults with autism spectrum disorders. The camp sessions are held at Agassiz Village.

Easter Seals Explorer Camp is a traditional five-day overnight recreational camp for youths ages 8 to 22 with autism spectrum disorders and their siblings. Orientation will begin Aug. 4, and camp will close Aug. 14.

The volunteer work is ideal for anyone thinking about a career working with children and young adults with disabilities or studying occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, special education, human services, psychology or related fields. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age for some jobs and at least 18 years old for others.
