Volunteers help support our mission all year long. We have wonderful volunteers working in the Boatshop, the Chandlery, and at various events throughout the year, including almost 500 volunteers for the Wooden Boat Festival alone! We are always eager to have new folks join us. If you are interested in volunteering, please follow our two step process below.

Already submitted your 2017 volunteer application, signed the waiver, and just need to update your information? Click here to do so. 

Please Read Before Beginning Your Application!

  1. Please use the same name and email address for all volunteer forms and signups—our database cannot sync your information otherwise.
  2. If you share an email address with another volunteer, DO NOT sign up online. Instead, contact our volunteer coordinator at 360.385.3628 x115 to complete the process over the phone.

Step One: Submit Your Application

Please complete our 2017 volunteer application. If you filled out an application in 2016, you may skip this step and fill out our release waiver instead. All volunteers must sign the waiver each calendar year before taking part in volunteer activities. 

Note: You must still visit the volunteer pages below to sign up for shifts.
