Volunteering has its Privileges!
There is no cost to join the WGRC. All active volunteers receive discounts on WGRC programs, as well as use of the WGRC
facilities, which include:
- 20’x50’ heated in-ground swimming pool
- 15 acre campsite
- Pavilions with picnic tables
- Sand volleyball court
- Soccer field
- Two playgrounds
- Basketball court
Most families are involved in WGRC for 3-5 years, while their children are participating in WGRC programs. Your level of involvement depends on your schedule. Volunteers are asked to be involved in one committee and help with one activity, as well as attend monthly meetings. Children are welcome at all meetings and activities. In the summer, meetings are outdoors at the campground and include swimming for the kids, as well as dinner. WGRC also has several family activities throughout the year for its volunteers, including a Halloween party, Luau at the pool, and a Holiday party.
WGRC is looking for volunteers with all types of skills and any amount of time available. Some of the help needed includes: buying equipment and supplies; maintaining the campsite and pool; hiring and training coaches, lifeguards, and camp counselors; scheduling of referees, practices, and games; fundraising; securing sponsors and advertisers; recruitment; billing and record keeping; publicity and website; and event planning. Any help is greatly appreciated and there is truly a way for everyone to contribute.
It takes community participation to ensure that there are recreational programs available for our children. Joining the West Geauga Rec Council is a great way to get Involved, as well as make some good friends. We would love to have you as a volunteer!
