Volunteer Opportunities At Crystal

We have two scheduled events preparing the camp for summer events and closing the Center in the fall. We also welcome church groups and individuals who would consider doing volunteer work at the Conference Center on other occasions.

Spring Volunteer Work Weekend
Spring work sessions on one or two weekends at Crystal volunteers prepare the conference center for a summer of campers, groups and families. Below are a few photos of hard work provided by previous workers. This is a fun time for you and your friends and family.

Fall Volunteer Work Weekend
Each year we count on you and other volunteers to help us close camp for the winter, usually in early October. Saturday meals and Sunday breakfast are provided. It’s a great weekend to catch fall activities in the Frankfort area.

Special Groups Work Weekends
We welcome church groups and individuals who would consider doing volunteer work at the Conference Center on other occasions.

Extra Volunteers for Spring & Fall
After the busy summer camp season, Crystal Conference Center is a bit quieter and reflective, the changing seasons bring a different beauty to its lake and woods. Site staff and campers go back home to schools and jobs. However, we do have a few groups and retreats scheduled in late spring and summer, and early fall. Volunteers are needed to help with these events; assisting with meal preparation and clean-up, housekeeping, and grounds upkeep, etc. This is an opportunity to experience everything “Crystal” at beautiful times of the year. Besides you would be a huge help to us.

To participate in any of these volunteer work events.
