Welcome and Thank You for your interst in the USARC Summer Program.

Throughout the months of July and August volunteers can help in a variety of capacities, from programming to special events, in Big Bear Lake.  We are looking forward to your help and dedication for the upcoming summer!

Expertise in the water sports activities is not necessary, due to the team approach.  During these sessions, duties may include helping on the dock, aboard a sailboat, water-ski boat, kayak, or fishing boat, jumping off jet skis, serving lunch, helping participants transfer from wheelchairs to boats or water skis and back, setting up tents, making s’mores, you name it! 

New summer volunteers must attend a one-day training session prior to volunteering.  The training sessions will be offered in June.   We ask you to commit to six days of volunteering, including one of the Big Bear overnight sessions and four of the Big Bear single-day sessions, though you are welcome and encouraged to volunteer even more!  Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age.
