Volunteers built the foundation of this camp and keep us running today. We would love for YOU to be a part of the Camp Cedarbrook team by volunteering this year.
Here are ways you can connect with camp:
- Work weekends — opening the camp in the spring and closing the camp in the fall.
- Summer volunteer staff — adults join us for one week or more for a wide variety of jobs, one is perfect for you.
- Off-season — helping with mailings, hosting prayer coffees, acting as liason from camp to your church.
Can't spend this summer with us, but can't imagine not being at camp? Volunteer for a week.
Work WeekendsBuilding the camp ministry together
Caring volunteers help us prepare, repair, set up, clean up, and close up on weekends before and after the summer camp program. Many of these committed "team members" are former staff, campers, parents, and youth groups who can give the gift of time, labor, materials, and resources, over a weekend. Skilled workers, such as carpenters or electricians, are needed as well as general cleaner-uppers and kitchen workers. A task can be found for any worker.
The mission of work weekends it to build the camp ministry together by providing opportunities for volunteers to:
Carpenters, Electricians, Landscapers, Painters,
Plumbers, Sweepers, Cleaner-uppers, Willing hands!
COME AND JOIN US!
