Our volunteers come from all over and from all backgrounds – Scotland to the US. No qualifications or particular beliefs needed – just enthusiasm, willingness to give things a go, want to work with people and live off grid in the wildness of the west coast.
Rachel a 2014 volunteer said:
“I came to spend my summer in a beautiful location, to live simply and sustainably, meet new friends, grow my own skills and help others to do the same”

3 Responses to NEEDED: Volunteers to work 2015 season at Camas

  1. Hi, i am Nelson from Uganda right now a long term volunteer at Corrymeela Community in Northern Ireland. I heard about Iona Community from a friend Dorothea Goetze from German who volunteer there before. I have searched about it the work is good and at some point i would also like to come and volunteer there. Thanks.

  2. My wife, Hedy Reese, and I are interested in volunteering at the Iona Community for at least a month or longer probably in 2019. She was at Iona on pilgrimage two years ago and loved it. I am a retired pastor with the United Church of Christ. She is just retiring this month from being a pediatric nurse practitioner, so we are both doing some advanced planning for our retirement together. Can you send us some information about volunteer service at Iona during 2019? Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Grace, mercy and peace … Steve Jones and Hedy Reese
