Volunteering at Rising Treetops

Rising Treetops is always in need of volunteers to help out with a variety of projects and activities on our 15 acre campus in Oakhurst, Ocean Township, New Jersey. Volunteers, either as a group or as individuals, can start or maintain a camp project, such as improving and beautifying our campus through painting, cleaning or landscaping projects, or help with a seasonal project (i.e., holiday parties, summer camp theme days). In addition, individuals, ages 16 and up, can be volunteer activity counselors.


Volunteer activity counselors can gain valuable hands-on work experience by helping to plan, organize and help facilitate therapeutic recreational activities for our clients with special needs. For information on the details and process to become a volunteer activity counselor, please email volunteer@risingtreetops.org or call Charles Sutherland at 732.531.0215. Volunteer activity counselors ages 16 and older can work directly with clients in activities under the supervision of our trained staff.


For individuals or groups who would like to volunteer indoors in close proximity to our clients or staff, proof of the initial COVID-19 vaccination(s) and at least one booster shot is required due to the vulnerability of our clients with significant developmental disabilities.


If you are interested in volunteering individually or with a group on a project, please complete our Volunteer Application or contact us first with questions at 732.531.0215 or email us at volunteer@risingtreetops.org. Prior to first volunteering at Rising Treetops, you will need to sign, and if under age 18 also have a parent or guardian also sign, our Volunteer Waiver Form.


We hope to see you in Oakhurst soon!
