What are you doing Memorial Weekend?

Memorial Day Working Weekend is a long standing volunteer event at Camp where people come to help prepare the Camp for summer. Many of the Camp’s veteran volunteers come back each year for this event. They have their favorite jobs and love the fellowship that goes along with the work. Some of our newer volunteers may not have discovered Memorial Day Working Weekend.

LarsonMWWWorking Weekend is when volunteers come and help spruce up the place to get everything ready for the busy summer season. This is a great opportunity to get together and enjoy camp friends. It is also a chance for individuals, civic, school and church groups to get involved in their community.

When I asked several long-time Working Weekend volunteers what they liked best about the event they said things like, “I enjoy the fun of working alongside other people…” or, “I love getting a pair of heavy duty pruning sheers and whacking away at something. It’s really gratifying!”

Volunteers clean, chop firewood, garden, test Christmas lights, paint, pressure wash, and help with projects for summer camps. There are many important projects awaiting completion.

This year, the event runs May 23-26. Volunteers can arrive on Friday evening and get settled in. Work begins after breakfast on Saturday morning and goes till dinner at 5:30. Sunday is a day of rest and recreation. Then, it’s back to work on Monday. Volunteers typically work through the afternoon and head home after dinner.

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 or commute from home while you volunteer. Housing and meals are provided for a small fee. For more information or to register, visit the Camp’s website, or call Jessica Wilson at 360-312-3417.
