Join us for a Memorial weekend work weekend. We got some spring cleaning projects to do and could really use some extra hands to help camp get spruced up for what we’re expecting to be an amazing summer of camps! Plus you’ll get to meet and work alongside some of our summer staff who will be assisting as group project leaders.

Projects range from window cleaning, landscaping, trail trimming, tree removal, cabin cleaning, wood splitting, supply organization, and more! We will have projects accessible from the youngest to the oldest of us.

You gift us with some sweat equity, and we’ll lodge & feed you, as well as having a worship service together on Sunday morning.

If you’re interested in staying at camp longer, you are welcome to spend the night Sunday night as well! However, programmed activities end after lunch on Sunday, so meals and fun are on your own!
