Important Message

Due to the continuing Covid-19 crisis and our more limited programs and services this summer, our Volunteer Program is on hold this season.  We may be able to use some help later in the season, and will update our messaging accordingly.

Become part of our community!

We provide award-winning, diverse programming only because of the hard work, enthusiasm, and time donated by our dedicated volunteers. Joining our volunteer program is a great way to get involved at the CSC, connect with Lake Champlain, and earn free rental hours! There is a lot of work to do, but there is no sailing experience required. Volunteer projects vary greatly and seasonally, but there is always year-round work to be done!  Detailed job descriptions can be found here.

Types of work:

  • Weekend rental assistance
  • Facility & fleet maintenance and upkeep
  • Seasonal preparation and winterization
  • Building projects and construction
  • Open house and special events
  • Community outreach events, such as camp fairs and festivals
  • Other: If you’ve got talents not listed here such as professional skills in photography, videographer, please share so we can get you involved!
