Special Projects this Weekend:

Patch Production Party

  • Do you have an eye for detail and a talent for repetitive motion? Help us mass-produce our summer patches by hand! Screen printing the patches for our summer programs is a huge undertaking and what better way to contribute to our campers than with the creation of the badges they earn the following summer.

Fletch-a-ganza!

  • Help us care for our archery equipment as you mend arrows with a careful hand!

Put Camp to bed for the Winter!

  • Join us wrapping up our garden, waterfront, and seasonal cabins for the winter. This could include emptying and covering the beds with cover crop and spreading our compost, packing up ‘Poop Deck’ and our waterfront area, and retrofitting cabins to sleep for the winter! Try a little bit of everything with this option.

Woodsy Workout

  • Whether you like to be out in the woods on the trail, or chopping it! We have the option for interested attendees to work on our trails to prep them for the difficult winter months! We also will be stocking up our woodpiles for a long season of warm and cozy fires around the camp – and have plenty of wood to split!

family work groupWhat to Expect

Plan to arrive by 10 AM on Saturday to begin your project.  You can break for a sack lunch you bring with you anytime.  Please plan to work until 4 PM and then cleanup and join us for a delicious hot dinner we provide at 6 PM.  You can choose to head home at that point or stay the night and enjoy some free time at camp and friend-making! On Sunday you will enjoy a hot breakfast at 8 AM and then work for a few more hours.  Please plan to pack up and clean out your cabin by lunch.

Evening Relaxing

Saturday evening is a time for relaxing, making new friends, a campfire, or other camp activities.  Bring an acoustic instrument, games, or other entertainment to share.

Youth Participation

Youth will be under the supervision of their chaperone(s) at all times. Youth 6th grade and older should be able to work most of the service hours.  All youth under 18 who provide at least three hours of service will receive a Sealth Service emblem and a community service letter.  Call camp about bringing your youth group (Camp Fire, Scouts, etc.) to a service weekend.  We are happy to make special arrangements for youth to volunteer at camp!

Lodging and Meals

If you reserve to stay at camp we will provide you with lodging in cabins in some of our heated cabins.   You may be sharing space with other volunteers.  Meals will be hot and nutritious.  We will serve dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.

What to Bring

Saturday sack lunch, water bottle, work gloves and work clothes, extra clothes in case you get wet, and rain gear.  If you are staying overnight please bring a sleeping bag, pillow, personal items, flashlight, favorite board games or other evening entertainment.
