[ARCHIVED] Volunteer at Your County Parks, Earn Free Park Admission

Volunteer at Your County Parks, Get Free Admission to Charleston Attractions!

[CHARLESTON COUNTY] -- Something as simple as stringing strands of holiday lights at James Island County Park could earn you free admission to area parks!

If you have a little extra time this fall, you can earn an annual pass that grants access to Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) facilities and to many other area attractions! CCPRC is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to work at park special events. Those who complete 30 hours this year will get an official volunteer ID with incredible park and attractions admission privileges.

Volunteers are being recruited for a variety of events, including:
• Latin American Festival at Wannamaker County Park
• Holiday Festival of Lights and the Winter Carnival at James Island County Park
• Harvest Festival at Mullet Hall Equestrian Center
• Kids Stock at James Island County Park

Volunteer duties range based on needs, but can include:
• Festival setup
• Assistance with event activities
• Beverage sales
• Recycling efforts
• Photography
• Videography

Volunteers with CCPRC are not required to fulfill a minimum number of hours. All hours supporting the agency are greatly appreciated. Those individuals serving over 30 hours by the end of December 2012 receive a PRC Volunteer ID, which is good for one calendar year.

The Volunteer ID has reciprocal pass privileges that allow the recipient and one other person general admission into all of CCPRC parks. Plus, the pass allows the owner and a guest free admission into other select Charleston attractions.

Interested in finding out more about CCPRC’s volunteer program? Contact Volunteer Coordinator Erin Guerrero at for details. To submit a volunteer application for consideration, visit the following link on our website:
