Volunteering

Volunteers are very important to the Oregon Conference and our focus on It's All About Jesus. Keep reading for ways you can be involved with conference activities as a volunteer.

Step 1: Decide when and what volunteer opportunity you are available to help at camp meeting. Volunteers are needed in every area during camp meeting. Below are basic descriptions of the different areas and needs with minimum age requirements if appropriate.

  • Children's Division
  • Youth / Collegiate
  • Hospitality (16 years old +):  If you like working with people, hospitality might be the perfect place for you. Hospitality team members perform various functions that are all about making people feel welcome here at camp meeting and helping them with whatever they need help with. Specific responsibilities include taking camp site reservations and payments, attending campus gates, helping people find the meetings, buildings and information they are looking for, and answering lots of questions.
  • Hospitality Campsite Host (21 years old +):  Camp site hosts stay in the campground to provide assistance for the campers in their section or anyone else needing help. Specific responsibilities include checking in campers in your section(s), helping campers park their RVs and set up their tents, and providing information and directions as needed.
  • Safety / Security (18 years old +):  Responding to calls for service, patrolling grounds, identifying violations and reporting / correction, supervising campus gates.
  • Nurse / EMT:  You must have a valid license to volunteer as a nurse or EMT. Typical responsibilities include helping with minor or serious injuries, calling additional help when needed, and assisting those with medical conditions as needed.
  • Dispatcher (18 years old +):  Sending and receiving radio messages from security and hospitality.
  • Messenger (15 years old +):  Basic responsibilities include delivering messages, documents, etc. on foot to people, departments, etc. throughout the campgrounds.
  • Prayer Ministries
