Your God-given talents are needed here.
Volunteers are a vital part of our camps, serving both behind the scenes and out front, to help provide campers with exciting adventures and inspiring spiritual experiences. Glorieta is ideal for volunteer groups or individuals who are led to serve.
Our elder volunteers bring needed maturity, wisdom and graciousness to our program support team. And our multi-generational volunteer corps draws people from all walks of life with a wide range of talents, skills, and experiences.
Do you have a way with words?
Help us write and manage the WildernessTrek blog and our social media accounts we maintain for our camps and programs. It’s a big job and we need savvy writers and digital connectors to help spread the word. This is a great opportunity for seasoned writers to bless our ministry with their expertise or new writers to build up some solid experience.
Yes! I’m an adventurous scribe who’s ready to write!
Are you at ease with packing, planning and a smile?
Our greatest and most direct need is in trip food preparation. Feeding our Trekkers is a monumental task that we pull off three times every day no matter the location. With multiple trips on the trail at once during the summer, prepping food for camping trips can be the “front line” of our needs. Serving up a Christ-like example to hungry campers can be a mission by itself. It’s gratitude made to order!
Scrub-a-dub-dub! I can cook, clean, and pack up the grub.
Know your Phillips Head from a Hex Socket?
Handy with a saw, hammer, and drill? We always have needs for equipment maintenance, like changing tires, unsticking stuck stuff, repairing gizmos, doomaflotchies, and doodads, or shoring up backpacks, tents and trail gear. It’s a big job and there’s no end to things that need fixin’. Our volunteer tradesmen help us get the job done with their craftsmanship, skill and expertise. If you’re skilled in the art of DIY and trail-worthy maintenance, we can use your talents.
I’ve got my tool belt on and I’m ready to roll!
Can you handle an axe, trimmer or chain saw?
There’s a lot of stuff that needs trimming, clearing or cutting out on our trails. Sometimes creating a trail where there isn’t one. With well over 2,400 acres, it’s quite a job to care for it all. We let nature have its way with most of it but many areas require the skilled hands of hardy types who are part skilled woodsmen and part nature keepers who can gently shape the land here and there to meet the needs of our campers.
There’s not a tree, branch or log that I’d mind choppin’!
LOOKING FOR AN EXCITING AND CHALLENGING SUMMER JOB?
As people come to us from all over the country (and sometimes beyond), our goal is to proclaim the Gospel and provide an opportunity for God to move radically in the hearts of those who earnestly need Him. We are always looking for others to join us in stepping into the unknown, the uncomfortable, the messiness of human life and who are willing to learn what it means to serve others humbly and wholly.
