Volunteers Needed

Hi everyone,

Hard to believe that camp is so far behind us already! I hope that your transition back to September life has gone smoothly.

Here are some upcoming volunteer opportunities that are happening over the next couple of months. A reminder that we rely on our volunteers to assist us with offering such great programs for our community throughout the year. For those of you who are hoping to get more camp weeks, this helps in aiding that pursuit. Volunteers who give more than 40 hours a year (or do significant fundraising) get their desired camp weeks. Other volunteers (less than 40 hours/year) are next on the list for desired camp weeks.
