Host and Cook Orientation

You love going on Healing Waters trips. Now be part of the adventure. Come to orientation and join us in our exciting new programs for 2017 - and bring a friend!

Where: 167 Fell St
10:00AM - Hosts
12:00PM - Cooks

Lunch is included

As a volunteer you will be shaping the participant experience. You will be the support a client needs while on a Healing Waters adventure. You will be providing material items like tents and sleeping bags or simply lending a sympathetic ear to someone who has never been out of the city overnight. You will be creating the tasty meals that keep everyone fed (remember that food?). 


Healing Waters' initiative can only be sustained with the help of volunteers who can commit to a minimum of two weekends this summer. Our programs take place in beautiful Camp Lotus on the South Fork of the American River, approximately two hours from San Francisco. We provide transportation (if needed), delicious food, tents, sleeping pads and sleeping bags. We also provide all the necessary training free of charge.

You provide the great attitude. 


The process for training as a Volunteer Trip Host or Cook is in three parts:

  1. Orientation:  San Francisco, April 8
  2. Weekend 1 (SWR): Camp Lotus, April 22-23
  3.  Weekend 2 (COR): Camp Lotus, May 20-21

No worries if you can't make all three just let us know when you RSVP
