"As a volunteer, I can say that some of the most incredible times I have ever had have been on Splore trips. My life has been influenced a great deal by the amazing staff, other volunteers and clients I have shared time with. " - Splore volunteer

Volunteer Opportunities

Programs - Help out on one of Splore's many outdoor adventures! You can join us for Nordic skiing, indoor and outdoor rock climbing, canoeing, Rock On!, and other fun activities. Volunteer training is required for all new program volunteers. Training will teach you the skills necessary to feel confident in your role as a volunteer.

River Volunteer/Swamper - River volunteers, also known as swampers, go on river trips and assist the Splore staff with set up of camp, loading and unloading equipment, preparing food, programming, and helping participants with various tasks.

River Guides - If you are a seasoned river guide, or interested in becoming one, you can join us in the summer for trips down the river. Volunteer guide training takes place in the Spring and is mandatory for new volunteer guides.

Special Events - Splore puts on several special events throughout the year, including our annual Harvest Moon Benefit. Your help makes these events run smoothly and successfully.

General Office - Assist in the Splore office with large mailings, data entry, computer maintenance, and other projects as they become available.

"Splore special events are a great way to make new friends and reconnect with old ones while attending a very enjoyable fundraising activity. Helping as a volunter to organize and conduct the event was a lot of fun but also very rewarding knowing that I assisted in helping to raise essential funds for such a great organization!"
