Worship, play, and help get the camp ready for the summer season! All skill level of workers are welcomed. Registration begins Friday evening and continues through Monday afternoon. Come for the whole weekend or just as your schedule allows.  

This year's work projects will include: finish work in new meeting space, set up tipis, reconstruction of the sweat lodge, trail maintenance, laying paver patio, sewing aprons and cushion covers, split rail fencing, prepping cabin exteriors for painting, deep cleaning, garden work, and more. You are encouraged to bring tools, painting supplies and cleaning supplies that you have at home. Please contact camp if you have special skills or tools that would be helpful in our planning.  

The many hands that help care for the camp are a true blessing. Our work is balanced with worship, singing, fellowship, and fun. There will be a Children’s Program that will include a combination of work projects, education, and recreation that is suitable for those in preschool and older. If this may be helpful to you, please contact camp in advance so that we can plan appropriate leadership and activities. Parents are asked to be responsible for the overall supervision of their children.
