Volunteering at the Island
 
We love our volunteers! For our 55-year history volunteers have been an important part of what makes Lutheran Island Camp successful. We welcome volunteers of all ages; volunteers who come to camp; volunteers who help out in their congregation; and volunteers who pray.
Listed below are some of the volunteer programs and opportunities that we have at camp.
Program   Description   Needs
Prayer Warriors   Prayer Warriors volunteer to keep Lutheran Island Camp in their daily prayers and to pray specifically for individuals, needs, and issues facing camp.   We need someone to help coordinate and communicate with our prayer warriors
         
Camp Ambassadors   A Camp Ambassador represents Lutheran Island Camp in their local congregation. They help us promote camp, support our Island Camp Jamborees, and share with us the needs of their congregation.   At least one ambassador for each congregation.
         
Teen Servants   Teens 15 years of age and older (14 if they have gone through Christ Serve Leadership training) are invited to participate as junior counselors and as teen servants. Junior Counselors focus their volunteer time on program support and may help at camp or in our off-camp Day Camp program. Servants with a Task support camp by helping in the kitchen, canteen, maintenance, or in our horse and creation-science programs.  

3-5 each week and weekend during the summer and some on weekends during retreat season. Click for application

 

         
Clean Hearts/Dirty Hands   These are volunteers who help our maintenance department and our horse outreach program. Volunteers come out for a day, a week, a month or more.

Current projects include woodcutting and splitting.

Committee members generally serve on committees that have a longer term assignment.
