Sep 26, 2013 Posted in Girl News, Home Page, Newsroom, Volunteer News

Fall is a beautiful time to visit camp!

Join us at a camp near you for the Fall Volunteer Work Weekend October 4-6, 2013. A Work Weekend is two great opportunities in one -- You get to enjoy staying at your favorite camp while helping maintain and improve the property for all campers to enjoy.

There is no charge to participate in Volunteer Work Weekends. Your stay is on us as a “thank you” from the Volunteer Property Site Team and GSWPA for sharing your time and skills in improving our properties.

All meals will be served on Saturday, with a continental breakfast on Sunday morning. After helping with the variety of projects on Saturday, enjoy the free time in late afternoon and evening. Relax with program activities and an evening campfire after a busy day at camp. Program activities will vary from camp to camp. This is a great opportunity for Program Aides to gain hands-on experience as well!

While there is no fee, registration is required to attend a Volunteer Work Weekend. Visit the Things To Do section of to choose a camp and register by using the S’more Fun Events Registration Form.
