A key supportive structure at The Wilds is the many volunteers who donate their time and skills to maintain and develop the campsite. Their efforts allow us to minister the Truth of God with the love God to thousands of campers each year.
Below are a few different ways to get involved volunteering at The Wilds. We hope one of them is a fit for you.
1. Organized Church Group
The Mainstay! These groups are the main support structure to help The Wilds “get things done.” They play a key role in areas of development such as new projects, maintaining facilities, and adding activities. The groups typically stay for a few days to a week and bring a mix of skill levels, ranging from the helper to the professional. Some groups come at a set time every year, and others come occasionally for specific projects. If you are willing to consider volunteer work in this capacity, and you would like to receive e-mails informing you of upcoming projects, please click below and fill out the form.
2. Individual Volunteer
We need YOU! The Wilds has many friends of the ministry with diverse and valuable skillsets. When these individuals come and work alongside our maintenance team, they multiply what we are able to accomplish. If you fit into this category and would like to receive e-mails informing you of upcoming projects, please click below and fill out the form.
3. Youth Group/College Group Service Days
Many hands make light work! Throughout the year, we have service days when either youth groups or college age groups come to help with large tasks such as mulching, washing windows, hauling brush, staining, preparing the facilities for summer, and other various jobs.
If you are a youth or college group leader and would be interested in bringing your group for a service day, please click below and apply.
4. Summer Prep Volunteer Week
Summer is coming! The week before we train our summer staff, there are a lot of details we must attend to in order to accommodate the increase in camper numbers (which we love). Things like cleaning, staining, moving beds and mattresses, grounds work, setting up program equipment (and much more) occupy our time that week. During this time, it is possible to bring your family and work together. However, there is no childcare provided. Availability for this week is limited.

5. General Maintenance Volunteer Week
Calling all handymen (and ladies). Once a year, we set aside a week to go through many of our buildings and do general maintenance such as minor repairs, painting, updating furniture, cleaning air conditioners, organizing supplies, etc. During this week, it is possible to bring your family and work together. However, there is no childcare provided. Availability for this week is limited. If you would be interested in volunteering to help us maintain our facilities, please click below and apply.
