April 29, 2021: Work Weekend Registration is now Open! Scroll below for more information and to sign up.!

  • Work Weekend will operate with COVID-19 safety measures in place. We will ask that all employees and volunteers utilize physical distancing and face coverings throughout their stay when required. State and local guidance continues to evolve and we will provide more updated information as it is finalized.
  • At this point in time, we are capping capacity for the weekend at 100 participants. If there is demand, we will work with the local health authorities to determine if we can increase capacity. We do expect the weekend to fill up, so we recommend registering as soon as you know you would like to join us for the weekend!
  • Housing selections are made on a first-come, first-serve basis upon arrival for Work Weekend. We do not take cabin or tent requests for the weekend. 
  • While we welcome family members of all ages, Work Weekend is focused on getting camp ready. We do not provide facilitated programming or supervision for our youngest campers, but they are welcome to chip in on projects with their older family members. 
  • The Swimming Hole is not open during Work Weekend.
  • All of this information and more will be included in the Work Weekend Participant Packet, which will be sent prior to the start of the Weekend.

Volunteers receive FREE stay and meals during the work weekend!
Join us for this annual tradition!
