volunteer

We’re always in need of dedicated people.

Are you interested in volunteering for a day, a weekend, or on a regular basis? We’d love to have you! We’ll even trade a few nights in one of our hermitage cabins for a few hours each day volunteering while you’re here. Check out some of volunteer needs below. Have an idea for how to serve Amnicon?

Social Media Advocate

Do you have experience with photo editing or graphic design? Come help us! Work remotely or from camp and help us stay connected with our campers, seasonal staff, volunteers, donors, and the rest of our Amnicon Family!

Photographer

Do you love taking pictures? We often have events at camp, on trail, and in town which we would love to be photographed. BYO camera and get ready to have fun, connect with people, and help us tell the Amnicon story!

Trail Maintenance

Do you love working outdoors? We have several miles of hiking trails that can always use a trim! Removing obstructive branches, filling in pot holes, and weed whacking are all satisfying ways to make our site more safe and hospitable for our campers and guests seeking to experience the peace of the wilderness.

Office Assistance

Do you love helping out behind the scenes? Do you have an eye for details, and an appreciation for organization? Help us in the office with record keeping and administration. Sometimes the work of the Lord looks like filing paperwork and color-coding spreadsheets!

Housekeeping

Hospitality is important to us! We can always use help cleaning the lodge, the dining hall, and the hermitage cabins between guests. Your valuable service will have a direct impact on the people we serve.

Maintenance/Handiwork

Know your way around tools? We can always find ways to spruce up around Amnicon and there are always things that need a little TLC. Have a specialty craft you think might benefit Amnicon? Just let us know and we would be happy to work with you!

Wish List

Getting rid of unused or doesn’t-quite-fit-right gear? Amnicon LOVES used gear – reduce, reuse, and recycle! We also love and appreciate new gear. That’s awesome stuff too.
