Volunteer during the year

If you have some time that you just don’t know what to do with, there is always a need for volunteers at Camp! You can volunteer your own time or come out as a group to help out. This is a great opportunity for you, your family, your small group, church group or organization to give back and do something together as a group. Come out for a week or a weekend, and we will provide your accommodations, meals and the use of the pool. Fill out the online application or call our Volunteer Coordinator at the 204-642-4262 to book your volunteer getaway!
