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 Work Week June 9-15, 2013
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 sign up by sending us an email or by
calling Ben Swan at 207-200-7957 or during the summer at 207-465-3031.
