Volunteer Opportunities

For over a century volunteers have made important and lasting contributions to Pine Island Camp and in recent years to Whitehead Light Station.  These volunteers have included alumni, parents, friends, staff, and even campers, and they have given their time in many different ways. 

Today there are more volunteer opportunities than ever before, both on Great Pond and at Whitehead Island, and all of them are great ways for you to contribute significantly to Pine Island and Whitehead Light Station, places that have meant so much to you. Volunteering gives you the opportunity to spend a few days back on one or both of our wonderful islands and, perhaps most importantly, to connect with other Pine Islanders and Whitehead Light Station alumni.  And we always take great care to be sure volunteers are well-organized, well-equipped, and well fed.

Spring Lightkeepers Volunteer Week Every June

In early June you are invited to help prepare the Whitehead Light Station for the season.  Spring Light Keepers will open up the Keeper's House, clean, wash the salt off the windows, mow the grass, touch up paint, and make sure the boats are ship-shape.  Experiencing the late spring at this incredibly beautiful place is an experience you will treasure.  Spring Lightkeepers will stay in the Keeper's House, and great meals will be served in the Keeper's House dining room. 

If you would like to join the ranks of alumni, parents, campers, and friends who volunteer their time at Pine Island Camp and/or Whitehead Light Station, you can find out more details about this year's volunteer opportunities by sending us an email or by calling 207-200-7957.

"At Whitehead Light Station, we seek to give participants an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy the dramatic coast of Maine in an atmosphere that will broaden knowledge, strengthen skills, and promote renewal.  We aim to achieve these goals through a program of simple living, appreciation of the natural world, and first-rate instruction."
