It’s time for Spring cleaning
Have you made a list of spring cleaning projects to tackle around your place this year? I can assure you that, at Warm Beach Camp, we have a long list of projects that need to be done before summer arrives! Every year it seems like that list gets longer, and the only way we ever get everything checked off is an annual event called Working Weekend.
Memorial Day Working Weekend is an event that brings volunteers together to help the Camp prepare for the busy summer camping season. Volunteers paint, garden, clean, sew, pressure wash, chop wood, help with The Lights of Christmas projects, provide child care, or help with other important projects.
It’s a great opportunity for individuals, families, and groups to get involved in something significant. When asked what they liked best about volunteering at Working Weekend one volunteer said, “It’s the fun of working alongside other people.” Another said, “I love getting a pair of heavy duty pruning sheers and whacking away at something. It’s really gratifying.”
This year, the event runs from May 24-27. Volunteers arrive and get settled in on Friday night, then the work begins on Saturday morning. Sunday is a day of rest, worship, and recreation. Then, it’s back to work on Monday to complete that list of projects. What a celebration there is at the end because of everything that gets accomplished!
You’re only able to make it for one of the work days? We can still use you! You are welcome to stay with us while you volunteer or commute from home. Housing and meals are provided for a small fee.
