Helping Hands Workdays
Third Tuesday of Each Month

Camp’s ministry happens all throughout the year, so we need volunteer help every month to keep up with our grounds, facilities, and programs.  You can join us every month on the third Tuesday for our Helping Hands Workday.  There are always indoor and outdoor projects available for all kinds of skills, so there’s sure to be something that’s just right for you!  Just let us know what you’re interested in when you call ahead to sign-up.  This workday is perfect for retired folks, homeschool families, or others with flexible weekdays.  See you there!  Call to let them know you’re coming & the type of work you’d like to do.

The Year-Round Program Calendar is posted on the Brethren Woods bulletin board. More information and registration forms can be found on the Brethren Woods bulletin board here at church or on their webpage:
