Nature Corps Volunteer Vacations
The Nature Corps' VIP excursions will help you leave your personal legacy in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks! Join one of their volunteer vacations and take part in this growing legacy of conservation.
Take an all-inclusive Sequoia volunteer vacation and experience the rewards of leaving your personal legacy in one of our nation's most cherished National Parks.
Since 1990, Nature Corps volunteers have donated over $1 million of donated labor to preserve Sequoia's magnificent natural wonders, including the world-renowned General Sherman Tree.
As part of your vacation you will help on important conservation projects such as restoring meadows or revegetating critical wildlife habitat. During the remaining portion of your vacation, experienced Nature Corp staff will lead you on side-excursions to explore ancient sequoia groves, swim beautiful lakes, explore Crystal Cave, and hike to the top of glacial domes to view Sequoia's spectacular Great Western Divide. Once you return to your base camp, you will have free time to enjoy hiking, fishing, photography, reading, playing Frisbee, or taking a nap under a majestic pine.
There are two volunteer vacation packages to choose from; lodging at the Wuksachi Lodge or camping under the stars. The camping package includes roomy tents and all the gear you need to create your "home away from home".
Both packages include VIP excursions to points of interest (including tickets to Crystal Cave during the summer months), delicious meals, and comfortable accommodations; all the ingredients needed to make this a rewarding and memorable vacation.Proceeds from this volunteer vacations program will be used to support the Nature Corps' Student Volunteers. For that reason, a portion of your tuition is tax deductible.

Dining: Pampered by Wuksachi Chefs
Each morning you will rise to the wonderful aromas of coffee and a hearty breakfast prepared by our Wuksachi chefs. Breakfasts will include generous amounts of egg dishes, meats, steaming flapjacks, pastries, cereals, yogurts and a wide variety of fruits, melons, fruit juices, and an assortment of coffees and teas.
A wonderful selection of fresh meats and cheeses, delicious breads, along with crisp vegetables and a variety of spreads satisfy hearty lunchtime appetites after a morning in the great outdoors. Tasty veggie wraps or perhaps chicken salad pitas may also be part of a mid-day buffet. At all times, unlimited quantities of icy lemonade and fresh water are available to quench your thirst.
After a full day of fun and exploring Sequoia, you will be lured to dinner by the wonderful aromas of meals prepared by our chef. Each evening a festive dinner will be served as you dine under the Milky Way. While you enjoy delectable appetizers and relax at the base camp, our chef will prepare a dinner that is sure to surprise and please. Every night is different, but the menu will likely include delicious meats, grilled chicken breasts, pasta, accompanied by delectable side dishes, vegetables, and wonderful salads. Cake and cobblers or other scrumptious desserts deliciously top off the evening meal. Then you'll gather around the campfire for scrumptious desserts and enjoy laughter-filled activities and games as you reflect on this memorable volunteer vacation.
