Work less, explore more! Volunteering at Estes Park Center is one of the best experiences you can give to yourself. Our volunteers are essential in supporting our Mission. In exchange for our volunteers’ time, we make sure that all volunteers have ample time to enjoy everything we have to offer. For as little as 24-28 volunteer service hours (depending on season), volunteers receive free lodging, and meals, along with access to most activity benefits and facilities.
We have a dazzling amount of volunteer opportunities that suit a variety of interests and skill levels.
