Camp Work Weekends

Camp Property Work Weekends

Take a break from your career and help us prepare our Camps for our summer programs.

At each of our three council camps, work weekends are designated for volunteers to help with camp setup and general maintenance. Projects include setting up tents, program areas, painting, and building care. This year a group of volunteers can arrange to take on a project at a time other than scheduled dates.

Below are the listed dates and event details. All food is provided and lodging is available.
