Ready to Get Involved?

One of the best ways to give back and help the camping ministry is to volunteer. Volunteers are needed year round! Consider how you can serve: summer camp counselor, program staff, nurse or maintenance; office help; grounds crew; adopt a cabin; fundraising; and board committees.

Thank you for your interest! Please contact Executive Director David Berkey or the site director to learn how you can get involved.
