Get Involved

Volunteers are an integral part of helping Camp Eder function.

Individuals and groups help keep our property clean and in shape for all of our guests. Although our full-time staff maintains the property and programs, our volunteers help us with the “extra” seasonal chores.

We have several opportunities throughout the year with which you or a youth group or Sunday School class may be able to volunteer. Here are a few examples:

  • Clearing hiking trails

  • Sprucing up Wagon units

  • Splitting firewood

  • Cleaning windows

  • Stacking slab wood for Fall Fest
