Volunteer with Camp Aldersgate
From raking leaves around the grounds, painting, weeding the gardens, or even cleaning the cabins, there is a volunteer job available for individuals or groups on Camp’s 100+ acres.
Work groups are vital to Camp Aldersgate. With only three maintenance staff and 100+ acres, there is a high demand for grounds work. Projects can be found for any group from 2 to 100 people. Projects include painting, raking, gardening, trail work, carpentry, or general grounds clean up. We look for projects that fit our needs, as well as the interest of each group. Work groups are welcome on weekdays and certain weekends.
From February to August, the administrative office can get pretty busy. Volunteers can help with copying, filing, stuffing envelopes, answering phones, and more. This is the perfect opportunity for any volunteer who enjoys office work, is looking for something to do after school or outside of the home, or is in need of volunteer hours for work or school.
Seniors Day Out
Camp Aldersgate’s Seniors Day Out program meets from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm every Thursday from September to May. Volunteers of all ages are needed to help serve meals, lead singing groups and Bible studies, and put together craft activities. Van drivers are also needed to transport seniors to and from Camp. Contact Joe Lyle at 501.225.1444 if you are interested.
*Please note: it can be difficult to accommodate work groups during the summer months and on weekends during the school year due to Camp programs in session.
In Summer 2018, 58 staff counselors and 206 youth volunteer counselors served 22,779 hours at Camp Aldersgate. Volunteer counselors help enhance the camp experience for participants through encouraging engagement with camp activities, such as archery, arts and crafts, canoeing, and fishing. They provide additional camper supervision and positive, meaningful peer-to-peer interaction.
Camp is the place where volunteers can discover what it is truly like to give of themselves in the most caring and unselfish way.
