Volunteer Weekends/Days
March 31- April 2, 2017 (fri.-sun.) &
April 19 - 23, 2017

(wed.-sun.) Register Here!


Can't make these dates? Join our Volunteer List. We may need help during our Summer & Fall programs too!
Click here to fill out the form.
We have set up a work day/weekend and are trying to rally our friends and volunteers to help! We desperately need help fixing up the cabins, trimming the lawn, setting up the horse area, and just doing a general polish to camp!
We have fallen behind because of the challenge of new building laws and just general budget challenges that are cutting back on staff hours!


Please share this information with your community groups, friends and family!

We provide the food and lodging.

We just ask for a $40 donation for children under 12.

Thanks for your support!

Sincerely!
Jill
