Ralph Page Work Exchange

Work Exchange is a great way to go to the weekend and way more fun than the name implies! For several years I volunteered to ‘work’ at Ralph Page’s Fall Camp and Year End Camp. Not only did I get to know Ralph and the staff better, I made fast friends and friendships lasting over 40 years. Getting involved, helps today and lasts a lifetime.

The Work-Exchange program provides for a significantly reduced rate for the weekend program in exchange for about 4 to 6 hours of help. The tasks include:

  • Help setting up the facility on Friday afternoon (high priority)
  • Minding the welcome / information tables (majority of work exchange hours)
  • Sweeping the dance floor between sessions
  • Cleanup on Sunday afternoon
  • Miscellaneous tasks as needed

About 12 Work Exchange positions are available.

There will be an orientation session for all work exchange volunteers just before the Friday evening dance.

For more information email info@ralphpage.neffa.org.

Work Exchange is an essential element. An effort is made to create a schedule which allows you to help and participate as much as possible. The schedule is assembled after the weekend ‘grid’ is final to make informed decisions.

A Work Exchange Coordinator is available all weekend to help with any questions you may have, manage any last minute changes in the schedule and generally make sure the process works for everyone. Honoring assignments and showing up on time helps the weekend run smoothly. When the performance schedule is fixed and available; you will have the option to put in requests for specific times before creating the work schedule.

Usually there is a waiting list for Work Exchange. Work Exchange positions are filled on a first come serve basis and candidate availability. To apply please complete the Work Exchange Registration Form. Mail the completed form and fee to:
