Thank you for considering helping us on our path to greatness. Camp is full of opportunities to improve and leave your mark. To help in this process, we have
the projects expressed in hours only.

A way to consider this is say you have 10 volunteers with you. Take any project and divide by 10 and you should get an accurate time-frame for each project.


Lodging is available and lunch will be provided.   Volunteers of all ages and ability levels are welcome. Bring your willingness to work and we’ll make sure you leave with a sense of accomplishment and a full stomach!  Please let us know you’re planning on attending by the Wednesday before the workday.
