Spring Clean Up (mid-April through mid-June): Teams of volunteers do everything imaginable to help camp recover from winter storms and be ready to welcome campers. Tasks include: weedwacking, brush clearing, tree trimming, scrubbing, cleaning, road repair, building repair, plumbing repair, pool cleaning, sweeping, raking, and more!
Summer Sessions: A weekly volunteer lives on-site and does daily maintenance tasks including trash removal, monitoring of water systems, general fix-it, and more!
Fall & Spring Projects: Each year there is a special project to improve camp. Right now it’s a multi-phase Kitchen Renovation! In 2021 it will be building a shower/restroom facility near the pool.
