Ecumenical Community of Chautauqua



2024 Work Days at the Ecumenical Community

Our volunteers are the heart of the ECOC. As a non-profit organization, we absolutely depend on the help of volunteers in order to continue to provide low-cost accommodations. If you volunteer a total of 16 hours during any of our spring or fall work days, you will be given higher priority for your room reservation the next season.

2024 Volunteer Opportunities

  • Opening Work Dates: May 30 – June 2; June 17-21; Closing Work Dates: August 26-30
  • Please consider joining us for one or more days during these work sessions

Pre-season and post-season Work Days are held to prepare the buildings for the season and to close up at the end. Tasks range from light to more labor intensive. A variety of skills are needed. It is always a great time of fellowship with fellow ECOC’ers. There is no charge for accommodations during the work days. Those who work the minimum of 16 hours receive priority consideration for reservations the following season. If you are interested in volunteering on any one or more of these days or want to learn more, please be in touch with the ECOC Managers at or 716-949-0548.

To find out how you can volunteer in other ways, please see our Gift of Time page.

Thank you for all your support!
