Riverbend Work Projects for Volunteers…a Win-Win!

Riverbend loves to have volunteers.  Volunteer groups can range in size from an individual to groups of 50 people.  The time frame can go from a single day, a week or even several weeks for some of the organized retiree groups.



Please fill out our Volunteer Questionnaire so we can best match your group with needed projects and lodging.


Volunteer availability will need to be reviewed before we can confirm a retreat.  This allows us to confirm that we have the appropriate projects for you and a staffer that can assist you while working.

Benefits and Provisions

  • Your group benefits from working together in a worthwhile venture.  There is nothing like working together on a project to build unity and teamwork into your group. 

  • Riverbend depends on volunteer work groups to accomplish the construction of new facilities as well as much of the ongoing work and maintenance needs. 

  • It is good stewardship in that construction and maintenance costs are usually cut in half utilizing volunteers.  This stretches donation dollars as far as possible.

  • Riverbend provides RV hookups for those bringing their RVs and we can usually provide lodging in the cabins for other groups.  Meals are provided for volunteer groups on an as needed basis.  For groups in cabins we provide free overnight lodging and reduced meals for 8 hours of work.  The evenings are free for your program and group times.
