If you would like to be of service and more fully participate in the community of Far Horizons, we encourage you to join our summer staff.
Work Parties for Camp Opening & Closing: Extra volunteers join us each year in June to wake the camp up from its winter slumber and then in September to prepare it once again for its winter hibernation. We offer free room and board for work days of 6-8 hours. Indicate your interest on the reservation form by circling types as “work party” and get the registration form to us by May 15.
Please note any specialized skills (eg. plumbing, maintenance, carpentry, cooking, housekeeping) when contacting us to take part in the work party. For more information, contact Rebecca Smith, (559)-530-0080 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fellowship Staff: If you would like to pursue a deeper and more intensive commitment to Far Horizons, and are 18 or older, consider applying for a “fellowship staff” position. They require a minimum commitment of one month and longer commitments are encouraged and appreciated. Duties include cooking, raking/wood gathering, maintenance, cleaning, or office work for 6 hours a day, with one full day off each week in return for food, housing and gratitude.
All program, food and lodging fees are waived for Fellowship Staff members. Please call (559)-530-0080 or email email@example.com, by May 15. Send your downloaded application to: Rebecca Smith, 13914 Sylvan St, Van Nuys, CA 91401.
We are always seeking volunteers, so you may be able to volunteer even on short notice, though generally we want commitments by May 15. We have a limited number of short-term volunteer positions (as little as one/two weeks) available. Please contact the camp director after June 15 at Far Horizons if you wish to volunteer on short notice. The camp direct phone number is (559)-565-3692.
