Year-Round Volunteer Opportunities

Outdoor School Station Leaders 
We've got lots of students headed our way this fall for mid-week field trips and we're looking for station leaders to help out! Lesson plans and materials are all provided.  You just need to be willing to lead a 30 minute activity several times to different groups of students, along with their teachers and chaperones. The time frame for volunteers for most trips is approximately 9:30am-12:00pm.  Contact Katie or Tim Heishman at program@brethrenwoods.org to get more information and sign-up to help!

Spring Workday: April 1 (This is no joke!!)  
Summer Camp has come and gone, but our year-round ministry just keeps on going!  Fall Outdoor School field trips, weekend programs, and retreat groups are on the calendar and we want to be ready for each of them.  Help camp prepare by winterizing buildings and chopping wood to restock woodboxes all around camp.  There may also be some inside and outside work to finish cleaning up from Summer Camp.  Indoor projects include making take home bags for fall Outdoor School students and helping with camp publicity mailings.  We often have special projects around camp to work on at this workday too!  Come see all the splendor of Brethren Woods in the autumn!  

Workdays start with coffee and donuts at 8am and end around 3pm.  A hot, delicious lunch is always included around 12pm.  We encourage individuals, families, youth groups, Sunday school classes, small groups, and others to consider spending one or more of these workdays with us.  Workdays are a great chance for youth to earn community service hours and provide an awesome service project for groups.  Please be sure to call (540-269-2741) or e-mail camp@brethrenwoods.org ahead of time so that we can be ready for you! 

Helping Hands Workdays - Third Tuesday of Each Month

Camp's ministry happens all throughout the year, so we need volunteer help every month to keep up with our grounds, facilities, and programs.  You can join us every month on the third Tuesday for our Helping Hands Workday.  There are always indoor and outdoor projects available for all kinds of skills, so there's sure to be something that's just right for you!  Just let us know what you're interested in when you call ahead to sign-up.  This workday is perfect for retired folks, homeschool families, or others with flexible weekdays.  See you there!
