Looking to make a difference locally? Join our team! The Garey Park volunteer program offers the opportunity to give back to the community, be an advocate for the park, and have fun in the outdoors!
The goal of the City of Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department Volunteer Program is to actively promote a mutually rewarding relationship between volunteers who offer their talents, skills and time who will support them in their efforts to cooperatively foster stewardship of our community’s parks, natural areas, and recreation and social programs.

All volunteers must be 16 years or older unless otherwise noted. Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or adult. Volunteering with us is easy! Just fill out the online application and we will be in touch.
Once your application has been received, a volunteer coordinator will review it and contact you with additional information. If the volunteer is determined to be a good fit for the program, you will receive information about our volunteer onboarding process, which includes a background check.
Park Hosts provide operational support to the park and information to the visiting public. Hosts are expected to provide excellent customer service to park visitors, support staff in day-to-day operations, and act as additional eyes and ears in the park. Park Hosts are required to stay a minimum of three months, with an option to extend another three to six months.
Benefits of hosting
In exchange for 25 volunteer service hours per week, hosts will receive use of park facilities and an RV site with full hookup during the tenure of their host placement. Hosts are required to maintain this site in an orderly manner. Further, hosts receive training from park staff and get to be part of a passionate team working to manage and conserve Garey Park. Note: No salary is provided.
Consideration and selection of volunteer park hosts include:
- Applicable work / volunteer experience and reference information
- Customer service / experience working with the public
- Other skills and interests
- Hosts and co-residents (18+) must give authorization and pass a criminal history background check
