“As a volunteer, I experience many of the rich programs the Center provides to the public, from assisting at a variety of concerts, helping in the Museum, counting entrants at the Fall Festival and Holiday Market, helping children create crafts at Family Day, and facilitating a children’s workshop. Bethel Woods is truly a gem that has added so much to the local and surrounding communities – and to the lives of guests and volunteers just like me. As a Bethel Woods Volunteer I am transformed into someone that can help provide that amazing feeling I first had when I experienced my first show [here].” – Mary Ann Bopp, volunteer since 2012
“Neither seasonal schedule nor press release can ever convey the excitement, conviviality, inspiration and simple pleasure of extending oneself to others that volunteering at Bethel Woods brings to my life. The Woodstock Experience created an atmosphere of limitless expression, and The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is still living their dream.” – Patricia Willard, volunteer since 2011
“[Volunteering at Bethel Woods] has literally saved my life! I had come out of some almost fatal health problems and loss of family…And Bethel Woods was there waiting! So very thankful every time I drive to Bethel Woods for duty and see the campus looming ahead and waiting for me with an invisible emotional safe hug." – Glen Wooddell, volunteer since 2006
