Interested in helping out with The Goodtimes Project, but not sure how you can contribute? There are multiple ways to donate your time and skills that will positively impact our ability to serve local children and families. Opportunities change with our calendar so check back often.
Fundraising and Events
wine auction committee
Seeking people who love Camp Goodtimes and enjoy event planning, logistics, and procurement (asking people for donations). Work with a fun group of people to put on an amazing event that is the largest camp fundraiser of the year! Commitment requirements are to attend monthly committee meetings and to see your assignments through between September–April.
Contact organizational lead Tina firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to committee help, we're always on the lookout for individuals to help on single or multiple day occasions, such as pickup or delivery of items, setup or tear down, or working the day of an event. Opportunities arise as events are scheduled on our calendar, but here is a sampling of volunteer help we've needed in the past:
- Wine pick up from vintners
- Moving items from the office to the wine auction venue
- Helping onsite with silent auction
Camp Visitors and Volunteers
Full-Time Camp Staff
Looking to give and get the most from your time? We need caring and responsible adults (must be 18 years or older) to volunteer 9 days of their time to be on staff at Camp Goodtimes. There's so much to know we built a whole page about it.
In addition to our full-time camp staff, we rely on other individuals to give from a couple of hours to a full day of their time to make Camp Goodtimes run. These day-of volunteers supplement our staff by providing extra hands to make programming, activities, and transportation possible. With each year comes a new timeline and new requests, but samples of ways we could use your help include:
- Activity or Arts & Crafts helpers
- Alaska camper airport pickup/return
- Camper check-in and check-out
- Camp setup and teardown
- Sample list from 2016
Contact the camp director, Tanya, at email@example.com.
Groups or individuals
Whether you're part of a group (company, organization, or institution) that wants to collectively give of your time or you're an individual who wants to volunteer on your own, we'd love to see how we can connect.
Please note that our top priority is ensuring a positive and safe camp experience for our campers and that may mean limiting the number of visitors/volunteers that we invite to join us at camp. That also means that we have a few rules, including:
- All volunteers must be at least 18
- For health reasons, all visitors must be immunized/vaccinated and no children under the age of 12 months can be brought to camp for any duration of visit
- All visitors and volunteers need to be approved and expected by the camp director
