Volunteer at Camp

Thank you for your interest in Volunteering!!

Generations of Red Pine campers have benefited from the hard work and ideas of countless volunteers. Now, more than ever, we are in need of volunteers. An aging property, expanded service lines and changes in regulatory requirements have resulted in a lengthy list of projects, large and small.

 

How can you help?

 

Get involved! Review the current volunteer opportunities which include information on duties and skill requirements. If interested, contact information is provided. Mark your calendars! Plan on participating in RPC’s work weekends. For campers new and old, work weekends involve some elbow grease, but also offer a great opportunity to renew or make new acquaintances.
