Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Red Willow. No matter what your age, talents or time limits, we have ways for you to volunteer at the Bible Camp. Volunteers are really at the heart of the camp.  Thanks to the many church and youth groups, family adoptions and individual effort, the camp has seen quite a transformation in the past three years!

Need an idea of how you can volunteer at camp? Here are some ways folks have been involved in our ministry:

Ways to Volunteer

Fall/Spring Cleanup

Each year a few church groups come to camp to rake leaves, plant flowers and do other upkeep. We can always use more groups to help with the never ending upkeep of the buildings and grounds.

Quilt Auction

This event brings out the most volunteers. Men and women donate items to our annual fall quilt auction and also work to sell raffle tickets and work at the camp the weekend of the event. See our calendar for more information…

Special Talents

If you are a welder, carpenter, can pour concrete or possess one of a variety of other useful talents, we have a place for you at the camp. To find out where you are needed, look at volunteer projects like the Bunker, Stump Grinding, pouring concrete sidewalks, painting trim, repairing fences and much more.

If you are available to help with office work, cleaning, painting etc, there  is a place for you too.

Call the camp office for more information.

Painting, Cleaning and General Upkeep

This is a constant need, and can be done in the retreat center all year long.

Stump Removal

Two destructive storms in 2016 blew down many mature oak trees on camp land. Thanks to Z’s Trees, staff and volunteers, most of the damaged trees were cut down and hauled away. The camp insurance paid for much of this work. The stumps that remain need to be ground out. The Property Committee plans to do this with a volunteer force.

Needs: rental of stump grinder, remove wood chips, fill with top soil, seed with grass seed


This is a program for 10th-12th graders who have attended or will be attending our Senior High Amp! Camp and have an interest in developing their leadership skills and learning about the responsibilities of life as part of a camp staff.

You will have the opportunity to return for another week of youth camping during which you will be assigned to a counselor whom you will assist in his or her cabin. You will also spend time in discussion with the Program Director, assist in various large group activities, and take part in work projects.

Positions are limited and weeks available to CITs are determined by age. Amp! Camp is a pre-requisite for this program. Please fill out the CIT Application online to apply.
