Shadowcliff has a rich history of volunteerism, especially visible during the month of May when Grand Lake starts waking up from winter! There are two phases of efforts in May with different point persons and different needs. Please read below to learn where your interests and skills might best meet this year’s needs:
Early to Mid-May: Skilled Volunteers
While Volunteer Weekend provides a variety of opportunities for people of any age or skill level, Shadowcliff also routinely has a number of pre-season projects that require more specialized labor, completed by small teams. These projects often involve more substantial construction, assessment and/or repair of facilities.
• Rempel Lodge Guest Kitchen Deck Rebuild
• Cliffside Lodge 3rd-Floor Fire Escape Rebuild
• Rempel Lodge Dining Room Floor Replacement
• Rempel Lodge Hand Railing Repair

May 26-29 Volunteer Weekend: General Volunteers
Notes on Volunteering at Shadowcliff:
- Volunteers stay in Shadowcliff rooms in lodges or cabins. Please assume double occupancy, and let us know if you have specific needs.
- Shadowcliff will provide some meals to volunteers, but not all. Please plan on some meals being on your own. Enjoy Grand Lake restaurants and be sure to bring snacks or additional food to prepare in guest kitchens.
- In compliance with Grand County Department of Health standards, Shadowcliff has updated its health and safety policies, and is no longer requiring vaccination for staff and long-term volunteers. If you have questions about this please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- Families with kids are welcome to volunteer at Shadowcliff! Volunteer Weekend is typically more family-friendly and offers a variety of “jobs” for helpers of many ages. However, child care is not provided and the terrain may not be suitable for all kids.
