Volunteers Bring History To Life at Point Betsie!

Point Betsie Lighthouse has over 50 docent guides working on-site. In 2016, five trained employees joined Betsie’s Team to accomodate six days of open hours in the summer. Docents at Point Betsie Lighthouse inform visitors about its history, provide basic assistance, and share insights about the local area. Docents at the Gift Shop offer knowledge about historical books, Boathouse artifacts, Petoskey stones, local attractions and much more. To volunteer at Point Betsie Lighthouse please submit our Volunteer Form.


Point Betsie Lighthouse seeks to attract the most talented and dedicated staff in support of operations each season. Point Betsie strives to keep staff returning for many years as employees, guests and volunteer supporters.
