To Our Dear Volunteers...

“We have learned over the years the Volunteers are the thread God uses to weave people together.”  Volunteers of many ages, including family groups, have been one of the most exciting opportunities for growth that have become a highlight at Trailways Camp. There are volunteers who offer their musical talents at lunch, bring language, skills and past experiences that bring joy to all present.  Some come for a few hours, Some for 1/2 day, some only for a specific activity,  many for a whole day and some even ask to stay overnight.  Flexibility is our guide. And we have learned that even if you wonder “What can I bring” —you can come and “Just be a friend.” While we ask you to register your activity interests we want to help make the Trailways Camp experience a growth opportunity for you too!

And yes, All Trailways Camp staff and volunteers must first pass a background screening.  Volunteers/staff who stay overnight in the camper lodge at the campsite will need to pass a Level II background screening.  You will be instructed on how to complete this screening by the Trailways Camp Director when they receive your Registration form.

For more information, contact the Trailways Camp Director at or call 941-564-9861
