Opportunities to serve include Family Fun Days and Family Camping on weekends in the spring and fall, Mini-Camp Weekends for campers six times a year, Week-Long Camps during school breaks, Adult Retreats in the spring and fall, and the Afterschool Program during the traditional school year.

  • Corporate or civic groupscan volunteer for service projects throughout the year. In the past, corporate groups have built wheelchair-accessible ramps, cleaned out cabins before summer camp, and have even provided a cookout for the campers. From small group building projects to helping us to prepare for our summer season, we have a multitude of available volunteer opportunities to suit a variety of interests!
