Volunteers are an integral part of our community and critical to ensuring a safe journey for the riders and a smooth overall Summit. Volunteers may pick a time that works best for them to support the event and are also welcome to camp with us in our Tipi Village in Sedalia, CO. Though the event is July 16 - 19, volunteers are needed on July 15 - 20 to help not only with the activities during the summit but also with set up and take down on the days just prior to and following the event.
Please fill out the form at the link below if any of these opportunities are of interest.
There are a number of ways to join the Tipi Raiser's community in support of the Summit:
Camp set up and take down
Delivering prepared meals
Following behind the riders in support vehicles to provide water, rest, food, etc.
Tipi Raisers provides all meals, horses, tack and camp gear (if needed) for volunteers who join us!
