Camp Tilikum | Staff | Camp Volunteers
Volunteers have always been at the heart of Tilikum. Since its inception in 1971, the camp has received hundreds of thousands of volunteer labor hours. Each year, Tilikums' success is contingent upon the generosity of dozens of volunteers in numerous key roles: counselors, kitchen staff, board members, maintenance workers, building contractors, office staff, and others.
Summer Camp Volunteers.
If you are interested in being a counselor or leader at one of our youth camps in the summer, you will need to fill out our online volunteer application. We will contact you when we receive your application. Thanks for your interest! Read more about being a summer camp volunteer here!
If you are interested in helping in a operations and support staff role such as in the kitchen, maintenance, housekeeping, please contact Dennis Littlefield, Executive Director.
It's important to us that you have a good volunteer experience, so we need to discuss your schedule, meals, tasks, etc.. prior to your arrival.
Projects for individuals, couples, and small groups:
We are looking for people who are willing to come and work a few days, a week, or more, and work alongside our year-round staff with repair and maintenance, deep cleaning, office assistance and maybe quick "turnovers" in housekeeping. We can adjust to meet your needs and interests. The camp has been privileged to have several volunteers work at Tilikum for several months at a time.
Projects for larger groups:
We are also looking for larger groups (youth groups, men's, women's, etc) to help out with landscaping, painting, small construction projects, clearing trails, yard work, wood splitting, beach cleanup, etc. We are often able to provide food and grounds use at no charge to volunteer groups who would like to come either on weekends or midweek. Our goal is to provide time for retreating as well as time for volunteer service.
Please give us a call to talk about your availability. We look forward to ministering with you at Tilikum.
