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.
Due to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Volunteer Sessions. This decision was made with deep care for the safety and health of our volunteers. With this, our 2021 Volunteer Application is OPEN and we hope that you will apply!
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.
