Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Application

Environmental Educator:

webster-staffThese are volunteers who teach children to understand, appreciate and conserve our natural resources. Through our spring training program these volunteers will become familiar with the natural history of Hunt Hill as well as the activities they will need to teach about it. May is a busy month at Hunt Hill for school programs and we need as many education volunteers as we can get! Environmental Education volunteers need no specific scientific or education background, only a love for nature and people. Join this team today!


Gardener:

We have flower and vegetable gardens that need planting in the spring, upkeep in the summer, and harvesting in the fall. The volunteer gardeners should enjoy getting their hands dirty and working in the great outdoors. This is a great opportunity for a garden club or 4-H group!


Maintenance Member:

The maintenance volunteer may participate in a large number of activities that will help beautify and improve the Hunt Hill property. A few of these activities include redecorating the dorms, rebuilding structures around camp, etc. This essential team of people is kept moving and busy both inside and out.

Junior Counselors:

Junior counselors range in age from 13-17 and help with the daily tasks of our summer day camp programs.  They help set up for camp, assist educators during programs, crafts and games and serve as an overall mentor to our younger campers.

Jr Counselor Description and Application


Bulk Mailer:

These very important volunteers help us to prepare and mail our bulk mailings, such as our newsletters and program guides!  It’s a good time to socialize with staff and other volunteers while doing worthwhile work. Hurray for bulk mailers!


Librarian:

Our library houses a variety of books and resources. Librarians are in charge of keeping all of our materials organized and shelved.  This position generally requires a visit in the spring and summer.


Historian:

The history of Hunt Hill is absolutely fascinating but it is currently stacked up, in boxes, and unorganized. Historian volunteers will help to compile all the clippings and photos and chronologically organize it. If you are a history buff or organizing obsessive this job’s for you! These volunteers could also help to develop a historical display for the property. *Great project for scrapbook enthusiasts!


Baker:

We often have events where we serve cookies and delicious desserts. We are always looking for people who love to bake and would donate baked goods for our events. This task you can do in your own home!

Trail Guardians:

Although we’d like to spend more time walking on the trails, sometimes we’re stuck in the office doing paperwork. We’re looking for volunteers who would adopt our trails and try to walk them once a month or so, carrying along loppers for those unruly prickly shrubs, and letting us know if there are fallen trees that need removal. We have several trails of various lengths waiting for you to adopt!


Seamstresses:

Do you love to sew?  Own a sewing machine?  All of our costumes for the Trail of Myths programs were sewn, thanks to our seamstress volunteers.  We really NEED seamstresses to help us create new costumes, repair the old ones and construct various items to aid in our school and camp programs.
