Special Volunteers Needed:
Camp Hospitality and Volunteer Outreach
We're looking for some special volunteers to help out the Arizona Trail Association
Volunteer Program. This time we're not asking for folks who are ready to swing a pick
or attack a wayward shrub . . . we're looking for people who are comfortable helping
out with event hosting and/or with the day-to-day business of maintaining a growing and
dynamic volunteer program. If you're interested in getting more involved with event
hosting, feeding/supporting volunteers and helping us continue to engage our army of
trail workers and stewards, we would love to hear from you. We are ready to provide the
training and materials if you can provide your passion and energy for making the Arizona
