WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE TO VOLUNTEER?

 

Volunteers are the backbone of our retreats. You’ll be paired with a Retreat Family (a family living through childhood cancer) to care for, serve and act as “host” over the weekend. During the weekend, you will care for kids, facilitate fun activities, and simply love and serve these families.  

 

When you serve at Lighthouse, you have the unique opportunity to invest in families while creating a special memory that will strengthen you and your own family. Thanks to you, this is the first time many of these families will have time to just be a family again since diagnosis. Activities of the weekend include ropes course, archery, bb gun range, marked hiking trails, hayrides, crafts, and more!
