Fall 2023 Camp Work Days

  • Sept 23rd, 9am-4pm
  • Oct 7th, 9am-4pm
  • Oct 21st, 9am-4pm
  • Nov 4th, 9am-4pm

Each spring and fall we rely on a team of volunteers to spend a couple Saturdays at camp helping us on constructing new buildings, clearing trails, general clean-up and lots of other things.

The main work happens from 9am-4pm on Saturday, but you can come for part of the day and if you're able to come on Friday evening let us know.

Lunch on Saturday is provided. We usually need 8-10 people each weekend.

Contact Nate Larson if you have questions about work days or volunteering in general: nathandalelarson@hotmail.com

  • Pick up campers in Burnsville (12:45pm) & Shoreview (1:45pm) and bring.

Drivers need to be 25 or older, clean driver's record and sign release for background & driver's record check. We usually 3-4 days to complete background check.
