Volunteer Opportunities

Chiltern has a variety of volunteer opportunities available throughout the year.  For any of the volunteer opportunities below, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and someone will respond you soon.

 

Trip Leaders - Our most visible and perhaps most important volunteer opportunity is to be a Trip Leader. Being a trip leader does not require a lot of wilderness experience and you do not need to be a long-time member to lead a trips. If you have a passion for outdoor activities and the willingness to lead others, you can lead your own trip.

CMC would not exist if it were not for the dedicated volunteer trip leaders who lead hikes, camping trips, kayaking, bicycling, and other activities throughout the year.  Some trip leaders lead many trips throughout the year and some lead only a few.  There's no limit to the number of trips one needs to lead.

If you enjoy walking through your favorite park or neighborhood, and would like to share that experience with other Chiltern members, post it as an Event! There are of course a few guidelines, such as rating your trip according to the Trip Difficulty Guidelines and reinforcing the Club Etiquette.

 

Trail Stewards - CMC has an adopted trail in the White Mountains we are responsible for maintaining.  With the help of the Waterville Valley Athletic & Improvement Association, we team up each year to clean and maintain what has become one of the most popular loop-trails in The Whites: Welch-Dickey Trail.

In 2011 we will be looking for volunteers to head north (or from whatever direction you are coming) to perform our stewardship duties.  To be upfront, it id hard work, but it is also fun and you may learn new skills about trail stewardship.
