The USMC is beginning a new procedure at the base, where if you don’t have a Volunteer Pass along with your Driver’s License, they won’t be letting you into Camp Pendleton. Security is getting tighter.

If you’ve volunteered in the past with JMMF your name has been added to the Volunteer Pass list.

The pass is good for 1-year, the letter that has been submitted to the Volunteer Center and it expires in 30-days. If you have any inclination to volunteer with us in the next 12-months, please take the time to secure a Volunteer Pass. You could join us at our July 10th or July 24th session and get your VP done at that time. Note the Volunteer Center is CLOSED on FRIDAYS.

In order to redeem your pass, you must go to the Visitor’s Center (Set of trailers on the south side of the gate) at Camp Pendleton Las Pulgas gate:

Take the Las Pulgas exit off of I-5 (a few exits North of Camp Pendleton South/Oceanside exit) and head away from the ocean (up the hill a little bit). Stop at the gate – let them know you’re getting a Volunteer Pass and they will direct you where to go. You’ll need a Gov’t Issued ID and possibly your car registration (have it handy just in case).

You will need Driver’s License, Registration, and Proof of Insurance. This should take approx. 30min…they were quick to assist us last year. They also have a copy of the attached letter.

**The Volunteer ID’s are to only be used on days that we have Camp Pendleton sessions or permission to come on base from the battalion. Please respect this. We do not want this privileged revoked.

We hope this makes your ability to volunteer with us much easier!
