It was a busy season and, as always, our volunteers brought so much joy to our campus! We are thankful to have faithful volunteers come once a year to help improve our facility.

Individual Volunteers:

Each year Lake Yale has a number of volunteer couples and individuals that come to participate in a volunteer ministry program. Most of them stay in our RV Park and in exchange for their work we provide them with utilities and some meals. They typically work Monday through Thursday from 7:45 to 3:00. Many of the projects they are generally involved in include construction, grounds, painting, handyman, cleaning, electrical, and plumbing. Volunteers also enjoy fellowship together each morning and during a weekly devotion. Applications can be download on this page.

Group Volunteers:

Short term, group volunteer opportunities are also available here at Lake Yale. Projects may include anything from roofing to painting to grounds work and more. For more information on group volunteer opportunities please contact the main office.
