Volunteer Your God-Given Talents.
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 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.
Are you a certified wheel man or woman?
Do you love to be behind the wheel and on the open road? Each summer Glorieta holds daily trips from camp for the summer staff to shop, catch a movie, eat out and explore New Mexico. Make a direct impact on the international and domestic summer staff and chauffeur them to where they need to go safely.

Are you at ease with a spatula, a mop and a smile?
Our greatest and most direct need is in food service. Feeding the masses is a monumental task that we pull off three times every day. Most of our volunteers work in the dining facilities during meals where they have a “front line” chance to serve up a Christ-like example to hungry campers. It’s gratitude made to order!
Scrub-a-dub-dub! I can cook, clean, and serve up the grub.
Know your Phillips Head from a Hex Socket?
Handy with a saw, hammer and drill? We always have needs for property maintenance, like changing lightbulbs, unclogging drains, fixing switches or shoring up fences. It’s a big place 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, we can use your talents.

Can you handle a mower, trimmer or a chain saw?
We’re a growing camp in more ways than one. And there’s a lot of green stuff that needs trimming, pruning or cutting. 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 artisan groundskeepers who can trim and shape the land to meet the needs of our camps.
There’s not a tree, branch or log that I’d mind choppin’!
Housing for Volunteers
Volunteers are provided with RV camping, or campus housing at no cost during their time of service. We make sure you have comfortable accommodations where you can get the rest you need in a space where you can relax and recharge your body and soul.
The length of your service is flexible. However, for our individual summer volunteers, in order to minimize turnover and training, we ask for a minimum period of one month. Many serve several months, and some have been with us for years. Shorter terms are considered on an individual basis.
Meals for Volunteers
Volunteers are provided all meals at no charge and are invited to dine alongside our campers and guests in the dining facilities or at special outdoor dining events. We encourage our volunteers to meet and get to know our campers and other staff members.
Prayer for Volunteers
Prayer is integral to our volunteer ministry program. We believe and practice Psalm 34:17, “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears.” The spiritual and physical needs of our campers, leaders, staff and volunteers are consistently lifted before the Lord in our prayers.
Personal Time for Volunteers
Glorieta volunteers are a close family. While our primary purpose at Glorieta is service, we also share in game nights, movie parties, worship services and visits to local attractions. You can also enjoy our hiking trails, beautiful campus and mountain wilderness.
Glorieta is a great place for groups who want to serve as a team to assist with a particular project or service need. Volunteer groups generally help out for specified periods of time which vary based on the project or need. Group Leaders please contact us for information.
