Volunteer Work Opportunities

Volunteer Work Opportunities Weekend/Days

We set up a work day/weekend and rally our friends and volunteers to help! We desperately need help fixing/cleaning up the cabins, trimming the lawn, setting up the horse area, and just doing a general polish to camp!

Please share this information with your community groups, friends and family! We provide the food, lodging and fun. Thank you for your support!

Update! Camp Cavell Spring Clean-up Days have been adapted to address virus concerns. 

-Temperature checks may be issued at the camp’s gate.

-Household families will be working in designated areas together & sharing same cabins.

-Please try and bring and only use your own tools, cleaning supplies and rakes.

-Work mostly out of doors.

-Keep 6-foot distance from others working near you.

-Bring a face mask for everyone in your family.  -Bring hand sanitizer, if possible.

-Meal(s) will be served as an outdoor picnic.
