Memorial Day Work Weekend

Our Memorial Day Work Weekend has become the traditional kick-off to our summer season. Each year 100-200 cherished volunteers share their time, talents, and labor to help open Camp for summer sessions. Many volunteer hands make for light work – which means when the work is done there is more time for canoeing, kayaking, sailing, tennis, hiking, or just relaxing.
