Volunteer Opportunities


2023 Campus Cleanup Day 

Saturday, May 20, 9 AM - 4 PM

Please sign up here!

Help us usher in another season of Black Hills Playhouse theatre by volunteering for our annual Cleanup Day! There are projects for people of all interests: sweeping, dusting, painting, fixing, installing, scrubbing, sawing...the list of fun activities could go and on.

We will start at the Dining Hall at 9:00 AM for a quick meet & greet. After the coffee and intros, we will promptly split into teams for the day's projects.

A potluck lunch will start at noon. You are welcome to bring anything you like, and please feel free to jot it down on the sign-up sheet (linked above), Or, if not, just let us know.

We encourage volunteers to bring whatever supplies might make their jobs easier.  Certainly doesn't hurt to have extra shovels, cleaning supplies, rakes, gloves, chainsaws & pole pruners, paint brushes & rollers, floor magnets, drills, screws, vacuums, etc.

We have been very fortunate to grow the attendance of this event year after year. Let's keep the ball rolling with your support. Please sign up today! Thank you!
