Point Betsie volunteers bring Great Lakes history to life for our guests! 


Volunteers help Point Betsie visitors as guides in the lighthouse and the Boathouse Museum, as well as with merchandise and purchases in the gift shop. If you’d rather work behind the scenes, you can help with educational programs, story telling/crafts, mailings, facility and/or yard maintenance, or other jobs that help us keep the Point Betsie Lighthouse a treasured destination for locals and visitors.

Volunteer shifts are typically 10-12, 12-2, and 2-4 every day except Tuesday and Wednesday in May, September and October, and every day except Tuesday, June, July and August. Docents may be asked to stand for long periods, climb the tower steps, or walk our grounds. Grounds volunteers may help set up for events, pull weeds, trim shrubs, or sweep sidewalks.

Point Betsie is a great place to meet new people, immerse yourself in our local history, and enjoy a spectacular view while helping your community. Our calendar lets you sign up for the same slot for the season or as often as you wish. We will have substitutes available when you are unable to help. Let us know if you would like to be a substitute.
