Volunteering at West River Center






Give a week of your summer to…


  • Impact the lives of children, youth, staff
  • Grow, challenge and share your faith
  • Play like a kid
  • Experience new activities
  • Accept new challenges

Our Summer Camp Programs are very successful due to the strong commitment from our volunteers. We have both lay and clergy volunteers working alongside our dedicated staff. We are very thankful for your ministry.


All volunteers are subject to background checks and training.
