Electrician | Welch Trail Education Center LT-1

Do you have electrical expertise? We’re currently seeking a knowledgeable electrician to help upgrade our historic camp in Harriman State Park!


The Welch Trail Education Center (WTEC) is a camp located in Harriman State Park.  Visiting the camp is like stepping back in time to the olden days of rustic camps filled with people escaping the city for the country.  The WTEC is now used solely by the Trail Conference to house AmeriCorps Members for up to 6 months and to host trainings and meetings throughout the season. Our overall goal is to provide safer and more efficient lighting and electrical supply to the camp buildings.



  • Replace old outlets with GFI and regular 3-pronged outlets

  • Improve lighting in the bunkhouses

  • Add two 220 outlets to bathhouse

  • Possibly upgrade wiring

Time Commitment

Work to be started on April 1 with completion in mid-May. There are approximately 40 hours of work to be done and it can be broken up as needed to fit your schedule. Additional help could be used into the summer if willing.
