We can use volunteer assistance in the following areas - summer camp counselors and program assistance, assistance in our Heifer Global Village with programming and animal care, general assistance with mailings and other office tasks, teaching assistance with our Road Scholar programs, kitchen assistance for food service related to our programming, assistance with maintaining our grounds, facilities, and gardens.
The majority of our needs are in the period from April through November but we also have some limited volunteer needs year round.
We provide meals when a volunteer work period crosses a meal time. We may be able to provide accommodations in our lodge or cabins for volunteers on-site for multiple days if space is available.
Shepherd's Spring is an outdoor ministry and retreat center located in scenic Western Maryland. Affiliated with the Church of the Brethren, we offer programming that includes a summer camp, a Heifer Global Village, Road Scholar Retreats, as well as retreat space for customer-defined purposes.
