Volunteering is a great way to visit the camp and meet new people from the surrounding communities. Tipi Camp offers many volunteer opportunities.  To a large degree our success is possible because of the thousand of hours of volunteer service donated to the society.  People serve with us for many reasons and in many ways.  But all contribute outstanding personal qualities and help broaden connections within our community.

The Tipi Camp is always welcoming volunteer services, if you are interested in offering your skills and time please contact us by filling out the volunteer form. Most volunteer days consist of 4 to 6 hours shifts.  We are looking forward to seeing you there.

Guiding Hands Recreation Society has always been fortunate to have many people involved. Countless people with a shared vision and a capacity for volunteering long, hard hours with a sense of service, and this should continue, because the Tipi Camp is a special place, and people will always want to contribute, to visit, and to connect with nature.

Some of the skills that we in particular are looking for:

  • extra hands during spring set-up
  • advertising and marketing
  • grant writing

We offer care taking opportunities to our devoted volunteers. As a caretaker you help keep an eye on the site between workshops, we also might ask you to do some small necessary chores. Camp sitting is a great opportunity to get some solo time at the camp or invite a small groups of friends. If you just want to stay at the camp and have not been able to help by volunteering you can rent the Camp with a group of seven or more people.

You can fill out the Volunteer Form here.
