Volunteering Opportunities

Camp Work Days

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 provide. We usually need 8-10 people each weekend.

Contact Donna Harper if you'd like to volunteer: dedcharper@me.com
