Volunteers have made many of the camp improvements a reality. Volunteers are needed in areas of carpentry, electrical work, kitchen help, flower gardening and miscellaneous maintenance. Volunteers may come singlely or as group, for a few hours or for a week. This can be a great church mission trip for adults, youth or the whole church. You can work hard and still mix it up with devotions, swimming, hiking, etc.
Free stay for pastors and their families when they come without their group. Enjoy an inexpensive vacation - avoid burnout - spend time in prayer and Bible study.
