Volunteer Opportunities at Twin Rocks Friends Camp
Volunteers have always been at the heart of Twin Rocks Friends Camp. Since its inception in 1918, the camp has received hundreds of thousands of volunteer labor hours. Each year, Twin Rocks' success is contingent upon the generosity of dozens of volunteers in numerous key roles: Cabin counselors, kitchen staff, board members, maintenance workers, building contractors, office staff, and others. There are several ways to volunteer at Twin Rocks Friends Camp. Find the way that best fits your schedule and interests!
Volunteer C.A.M.P. Team
Have you always wanted to give back to Twin Rocks but never quite knew how to make it all work? The Volunteer C.A.M.P. Team (Clean, Assist, Minister, Pray) is a group of individuals who share a love for Twin Rocks and a heart for service at the camp.
Weekend Training. The Volunteer C.A.M.P. Team begins with a weekend of training. Members gather once a year in the spring for a retreat that includes fellowship and fun along with on-the-job work training in the areas of dishroom and housekeeping. Families of volunteers are invited to the training weekend.
Weekend(s) of Service. C.A.M.P. Team members then sign up to serve 1-2 weekends per year in dishroom and housekeeping duties. Each weekend entails 12 hours of volunteer labor (typically 6-8 hours on Saturday and 4-6 hours on Sunday). C.A.M.P. Team members work alongside Twin Rocks staff, providing a space for guests and campers to make the most of their time at Twin Rocks. Of course, Twin Rocks provides complimentary lodging and meals for its C.A.M.P. Team members.
The C.A.M.P. Team provides volunteers with weekends-with-a-purpose, helping behind the scenes to make Twin Rocks successful. It's a LOT of hard work, but we think you'll also find it very rewarding. You'll be a huge blessing to the Twin Rocks staff.

Other Volunteer Opportunities:
Summer Camp Volunteers
If you are interested in applying to serve as a counselor or leader at one of our youth camps in the summer, please fill out our online Volunteer Counselor or Staff Application.
Larger groups (such as youth groups, men's, women's, etc.) are invited 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 housing 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.
It's important to us that you have a good volunteer experience, so we need to discuss your schedule, meals, housing, tasks, etc.. prior to your arrival. Please consider what "gift of time" you can give to Twin Rocks.
Volunteers are housed in their own recreational vehicles (RVs), in Volunteer Apartments, or in camper housing. Twin Rocks has several full RV hookups, and two Volunteer Apartments. Short-term volunteers often stay in camp cabins or in the motel-style Pacific Woods Lodge.
Delicious meals are available to volunteers when the kitchen is preparing meals for groups at the main camp. This is a highlight for our volunteers, where all of our staff (full- and part-time) have opportunity for daily fellowship in the staff dining room.
Please give us a call to talk about your availability, and please fill out our Twin Rocks Volunteer Application.
We look forward to ministering with you at Twin Rocks Friends Camp.
