Adopt - a - Project: If you have a skill, we have a project!

There are many areas at camp that need special attention. If one of these fits your expertise, why not take it under your wing or use it as a mission opportunity for your group?

  • Adopt a Cabin - Put your organization's name on one of 9 camper cabins. Decorate it, brighten it, freshen it, and make it feel like home. Plus, adopting a cabin means you get other benefits when your group wants to do a retreat or have a get-away.
  • Flowers and Frontage - If you've got the green thumb, you may be just the person to keep the flower beds beautiful.
  • Pontoon Boat - Some new decking, a good pressure wash, and a little attention to the engine can have this back on the water in no time!
  • Many more areas exist that are not listed here. Call Mark at 419-938-3715 to find the project that is perfect for you.

Volunteer Data Base

We are working to maintain a current database of everyone who invests so much time and talent here. If you have recently moved, or if you simply want to let us know the areas where you enjoy serving most, CLICK HERE to update your information. We look forward to having you at camp again soon!

Maple Syrup

Volunteer to chop wood, tap lines, boil sap, finish syrup, and sell syrup. If you would like to represent camp and sell syrup at the local farmer's market, your church, or someplace creative, we would appreciate your help in converting the syrup into scholarships for campers! If you prefer to work with your hands, you are always welcome to cut, split, and stack wood for the upcoming season.

"She loved her counselors..."

"I just wanted to tell you how much our daughter enjoyed herself this summer at your camp. This was her, our, first experience and it couldn't have been better! She loved her counselors and the entire experience. When she first approached us about a summer camp, I was hesitant and overwhelmed. I searched for camps and yours stood out. You answered my questions and your staff helped me with payments; all of which was appreciated. When we arrived to drop her off, the check in procedure was helpful and easy. Everyone made us feel welcome. While she was there, we were able to catch up via the pictures your staff took which made us feel connected. When we picked her up she couldn't stop talking about how much fun she had. Thanks so much!"
