Camp Ithiel would not exist were it not for the generosity of our volunteers. It would be impossible to maintain the ministry without your help. Many volunteers have given up their time to come and help us create the atmosphere necessary to do our ministry well. Plumbers, Electricians, Carpenters—all of these skills are vital to the ongoing development and maintenance of Camp Ithiel. God has given you a skill, and He’s given you the opportunity to impact His Kingdom by using that skill. Whatever your passion, abilities or talents, volunteer service at Camp Ithiel is a great way to give back to the Lord.

Kitchen: During the off-season many volunteers are needed to assist in preparing and serving meals for retreat groups. Volunteers are also needed to feed hungry campers during the summer.
Community Service Hours: The state of Florida requires every student to fulfill a certain amount of community service hours for graduation. We are pleased to help students in this way. There is always something to do at camp.
Winter Volunteering: Retired snowbirds travel hundreds of miles to get to Camp Ithiel every year for volunteering. During the winter season these volunteers park their RV’s on site and help with cooking, cleaning, organizing and building.
Summer Camp: Many summer camp volunteers are vital to our resident and specialty camp ministry including Deans, Chaplains, Dorm Parents, Craft Leaders, Nurses, Cooks, etc. More information.
Summer Workcamp: Live, love and serve like Jesus during our six day summer Workcamp experience. Campers are able to earn community service for school hours while also enjoying regular camp activities.
