Current Volunteer Needs

We love volunteers!!!  Current needs are below.  We try to update this list quarterly.

  1. Chain Saw Volunteers to help clean up Derecho Storm Damage

  2. Summer Camp Counselors for children's ministry and youth ministry camps.  Counselors volunteer for one week at a time.

  3. Camp Nurses to assist with medications, offer first-aid, and communicate with parents as needed.

  4. Mowing help is needed all spring and summer.  Experience on a zero turn mower is preferred but not required

  5. Office workers to help answer phones, make copies, help with curriculum during summer camp.

  6. Gardeners to keep our flower beds spruced up

  7. Carpentry skills - as we begin work on the Boatwright Boathouse and the BSD Treehouse next spring.  Plans are being drawn up now.

  8. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts - we love working with Eagle Scout and Gold Award candidates.  Each project can be personalized for the gifts and talents of the scout.  We have lots of projects for service days for the whole troop as well.  Call the camp office to talk about possibilities.

  9. Church service outings - we love to work with church leaders who are looking for volunteer opportunities for their congregation, men's group, women's group, youth group, etc.  We can work with you to find a project that fits the skill level of your church.
