Apply to be a 2016 Camp Volunteer

Are you a former Camp participant looking to stay involved with the Regional Restoration Camps? Do you want to share your knowledge and experience with a new group of eager participants?

CHwB is looking for volunteers to assist at this year’s Regional Restoration Camps. Camp volunteers will attend the full two weeks of the camp and assist with a variety of tasks to help make the experience as rewarding as possible for participants. They will help organizers, craftspeople and participants with issues of coordination, communication and guidance. Be sure you understand the duties and meet the eligibility and qualifications before applying!

Note: If you have never attended the CHwB Regional Restoration Camps, please apply as a participant, rather than a volunteer. Click here for more information!
