• Construction volunteers use their skills to improve and expand our accessible infrastructure by helping to clear trails, build walkways, paint sheds, clean cabins and help with general facility maintenance. Each spring, Camp Big Sky organizes work days to prepare for the camping season – which will be held on April 9 and 30 this year.
• Special Event Fundraising volunteers help them plan and organize fundraising events such as their Fishing Tournament to be held Saturday, May 21 at Giant Goose Ranch, Golf Scramble in September and their new Kickin’ Event ‘It Up on Friday, July 8. Volunteers are always needed to plan, set up and take down, advertise, get sponsors and prizes, sell raffle tickets and other tasks necessary to run a successful event.
• Their Community Board of Directors is always looking for qualified and talented individuals to serve on a number of standing committees and serve as directors to guide our organization and its mission.
