Summer is coming and we could use your help!

WW_Volunteers_A_240Memorial Day Working Weekend is a long-standing volunteer event here at Warm Beach Camp. Many of the Camp’s veteran volunteers come back for this event year after year. They have their favorite jobs and love the fellowship, but many of our newer volunteers may not even know what Memorial Day Working Weekend is.

Working Weekend allows the Camp to prepare for its summer program season by asking volunteers to come and help spruce up the place. This is a great opportunity for individuals and civic, school and church groups to get involved in their community. When asked, several long time Working Weekend volunteers said that what they liked best was the fun of working alongside other people. “I love getting a pair of heavy duty pruning sheers and whacking away at something. It’s really gratifying,” said one.

Volunteers paint, garden, clean, sew, chop wood, power wash, set up tents, help with crafts, and Lights of Christmas projects, or help in child care.

This year, the event runs from May 25-28. Volunteers who are staying on grounds arrive and get settled in on Friday night. After breakfast on Saturday, work begins at 8:30 and goes till 5:30. Sunday is a day of rest, and then it’s back to work on Monday morning.

Volunteers work through the afternoon, enjoy supper together, and then head on home. If you can only make it for one of the work days, we would still love to have you! You are welcome to stay with us while you volunteer or commute from home. Housing, meals and insurance are provided for a small fee.
