PROJECT NEHEMIAH is our volunteer work weekend for adults, youth and children.
This work weekend is named after the Old Testament character Nehemiah. Nehemiah looked at God's city Jerusalem and saw that it was tired, broken and needed repair. Nehemiah had a vision to repair the walls of Jerusalem and transform the city from tired, broken and run-down to a new fresh city that was ready for God's great work!
This is the same vision we have for Angeles Crest! We want to move the camp from tired and worn (from the weather, the campers, etc.) to fresh and new and ready for God's great work this summer!! This work weekend is designed to repair and renovate our buildings, to landscape the camp grounds, and to prepare the camp for the upcoming summer season. It’s a chance to join together as the Angeles Crest family to keep our facilities in tip-top shape!!
We would love to have you come help prepare the camp facility for our upcoming summer camps! There are a number of arrival options for the work weekend...
1. Friday day arrival - You can get a headstart on Project Nehemiah weekend by coming to work at the camp during the day on Friday and then staying through the weekend. Lunch and dinner will be provided on Friday.
2. Friday evening arrival - You can head up to the camp on Friday night (5:30 pm - 7:00 pm) so that you're ready to go bright and early on Saturday morning. Please let us know if you are planning to come up on Friday evening so we can make arrangements for housing assignments.
