Whitebirch Social Club

Would you like to meet new people? Or, get together with other campground owners for meaningful and fun activities? Then the Whitebirch Volunteer Network and Social Club might be what you’re looking for.

The purpose of the club is to plan, organize, and carry out activities in the park during the camping season. The club is run by volunteer campground owners.

In the past, activities such as: Saturday morning kid's crafts; the kid’s scavenger hunt; Halloween in August; Christmas in July; the children's carnival; Luau dance; golf cart drags; Saturday movie nights and many other activities have been planned, organized and carried out by just a few dedicated individuals. The club would explore ways to expand and improve those types of activities through a network of volunteers.

If interested in this volunteer opportunity, or just to see what is being planned, please join us on Facebook by:  sending a friend request to “Whitebirch Volunteer” or by sending an email to:
