Volunteers

Skyline Hikers, as a not-for-profit organization, is totally dependent on volunteers to plan, organize and operate its annual camp and hike program.

There is a critical need to expand the cadre of volunteers on various Standing Committees, Camp Operations, the Council and Executive to facilitate seamless ongoing succession in key leadership positions of the organization.  See below for a list of volunteers needed.

A Volunteer Coordinating Group has been established to facilitate the recruitment and deployment of volunteers from within the membership. They have their own e-mail address volunteers@skylinehikers.ca to provide a convenient, single point of contact.

If you enjoy the camp and hike program that Skyline Hikers offers and want to see it continue into the future, consider lending a hand every little bit counts. No matter how much time you can devote and the talents you can bring to the table, every little bit counts.
