Help The BHP



Volunteer Opportunities


Campus Cleanup Day - May 15, 2021!

Please sign up here to help us get the campus ready for our upcoming season.

Not having a season last year means that the rigors of nature have had two years to blanket the grounds with leaves, twigs, tree limbs downed by wind storms, and roads and pathways that need to be cleared and readied for our company and our patrons. Additionally, the housing units and dining hall are dusty, windows need cleaning, bathrooms need a thorough "once over" and buildings need some TLC to whip the campus into shape!

We'll start at 9:00 AM and will work until we're done!

A generous donor has offered to purchase box lunches for everyone, so let's gather as a community and get the campus ready for an epic summer of entertainment!

Bring shovels, gloves, rakes, cleaning cloths, and supplies. We will provide plenty of water and coffee! Please let us know if you are coming.  Our goal is to have 25 volunteers.




People who are willing to work regular shifts to help with concession sales.

Since 2011, the BHP has done over $1.5 million dollars worth of improvements to our campus in Custer State Park thanks to the generosity of our community. Your support has allowed us to improve the quality of living for our summer cast & crew, offer more amenities to guests (like yourself!), and much more.
