About the work exchange / volunteer program
Depending on the season, volunteers serve in a variety of positions including:
- camp counselors
- activities and entertainment
- event planning and production
- building projects
- grounds maintenance
- kitchen support.
Positions are based on experience, prior service, and timeliness in the application process.
Where do volunteers stay and eat?
RV space is provided year round free of charge (based on availability) in exchange for your service. Volunteers are also provided meals free of charge after guest groups have been served.
In the summer, The Grove operates with both volunteers and paid seasonal staff. Seasonal staffers are paid a weekly salary and are provided meals and lodging free of charge in exchange for their work.
Accommodations include 14 shared rooms in our Plaza Lodge for a total of 28 staff. Each staff room includes two twin beds and a common bathroom down the hallway. Summer Staff are matched by age and gender for lodging accommodations.
Volunteers are asked to commit a minimum of one month of work. Continuance of volunteer’s work beyond one month is contingent on both parties finding performance and cooperation to be satisfactory.
