Love getting your hands dirty in the barn just as much (if not more!) than spending time in the saddle? DuBois Center’s equestrian program is volunteer-run during the spring and fall seasons, and could always use more smiling faces. Horse experience is great but not required – a positive attitude and desire to pitch in are much more important!
We offer volunteer work days every fall and spring. Projects can include: minor building repairs, general tree/brush removal, lawn care (i.e. clipping bushes, weeding), painting and general camp clean-up. Experienced and inexperienced persons of all ages are needed and welcome.
Project and Maintenance Volunteers
Skilled hands, willing hearts: whether you’re a skilled laborer or a pair of willing hands, we can put you to work on projects related to your field or tasks requiring little skill.
Spend a weekend at DuBois throughout the year, assisting the camp’s ministry. Individuals, couples, or families are invited to help with hospitality of guest groups, food service, and small projects.
Consider serving as a committee member to help guide and direct the ministry of DuBois Center. We have volunteers serve on the following committees:
- Equestrian Committee
