We are seeking volunteers with roofing experience to install new roofs on two of our buildings at the Welch Trail Education Center. The WTEC is a beautiful, remote camp located in one of the old Girl Scout Camps in Harriman State Park. Visiting the camp is like stepping back in time to the olden days of rustic camps filled with children for the summer, escaping the city for the country. The WTEC is now used solely by the Trail Conference to house our AmeriCorps Members for up to 6 months and to host trainings and meetings throughout the season. In exchange for a rental fee we provide trail maintenance and camp upgrades. 

Number of Openings: 4


  • Two lakeside cabins are in need of new roofs.
  • Tongue and groove boards may need repair, and plywood sublayer added.  
  • Needs drip edge installed.   

Skills and Qualifications

Having your own tools is preferable but some can be shared as needed. All supplies are expensed by the Trail Conference and need to be preapproved. AmeriCorps Members may be available to assist, as well at the TC AmeriCorp Assistant. Applicants must be 21 years or older.
