Craigdarroch Castle has a dynamic volunteer program that sees a wide range of people sharing their time to provide visitors with the information and stories that make a visit to Craigdarroch a fun, family friendly experience.

They are looking for a gift shop volunteer who will assist in the store store by processing sales, wrapping and bagging merchandise, and restocking shelves. You will answer final questions the visitors might have and guide them to their next destination! All with a big smile! They are always seeking long-term commitments but require a minimum of six months.

To find out more about becoming a volunteer please stop by the Castle to pick up an application or call 250-592-5323 ext. 32 or email
