Volunteering at CAM

Thanks for your interest in volunteering!


Volunteering is gratifying experience, and a fundamental part of what makes CAM, CAM! We have a large number of opportunities to learn about art and local history, as well as opportunities to use your skills to support the museum. No prior knowledge of art is necessary, as training is provided for the roles that require it.

Whether you want to help every once in a while or on a regular basis, we’ll help find the perfect volunteer position for your skills and interests!
