ways you can volunteer
- Give Your Time
Cross Trails Ministry needs the time and talents of volunteers in order to keep Lutheran Camp Chrysalis and Ebert Ranch Camp operating to their full potential. Cross Trails has limited full time staff positions, the rest of this ministry is completed by dedicated summer staff, part-time help, and many, many volunteers. If you have questions about volunteering with Cross Trails, please contact our main office at (830) 257-6340.
Volunteers who are on-site while youth campers are present, must undergo special training and a criminal background check.
