What is Work Weekend?

Work Weekend is a time in the spring when camp supporters gather in service to help get camp ready for the summer. We have people of all ages and abilities come to help, ranging from families with young children, retired couples, single adults, and everywhere in between. If you love camp and are willing to do some work, then you can rest assured there will be many different projects you can help with during our Work Weekend.

It’s not just all hard work, though. We’ll start each morning with time in God’s Word, and evenings are for enjoying camp and joining in on some campfire devotions and evening fellowship time. Participants always mention the camaraderie and fellowship they feel as we all come together to help camp as one of the highlights of the weekend.

In gratitude for your service, Work Weekend is a completely free event.

Extra Skills + Extra Tools

If you possess skills which may be helpful (carpentry, plumbing, electrical, sewing, etc.) or are experienced in a particular area, please let us know in advance so that we can plug you in to a project where your talents may be put to their best use possible. To do so, simply call our office at 812-342-4815 or email us HERE with the subject “Work Weekend Skills”.

In addition, it is often useful to bring along extra tools or equipment you may possess. Although camp has a lot of tools, we never seem to have enough for a weekend like this. Bringing along rakes, leaf blowers, trimmers, and more specialized tools can often be very useful. If you contact us ahead of time we can tell you specific items that would be useful to bring.
