Do you have some time and the desire to volunteer? We are always looking for people willing to help with a wide variety of projects around the Camp. Right now, we could particularly use some help with painting projects, light testers, and a builder for The Lights department, volunteer nurses, and grounds-keeping help. From projects requiring skilled trades professionals to ones that take no special skills at all – we have something you can help with. Please email Volunteer Coordinator, Jessica Beach, or call her at the Camp.
