Volunteer Work Weekend

Over the Memorial Day weekend we host our volunteer service weekend for individuals, families, or church groups.  We welcome adults, youth and children to come and help out with our work weekend.

This weekend is designed to help us get our camp facilities and grounds ready for the upcoming summer camp season.  We offer projects including, landscaping, painting, housekeeping/cleaning, and well as plumbing, electrical and other building projects.

We want to take our camp from tired and worn (from the weather, the campers…) to fresh and new, and ready for God’s great work this summer! During this service weekend, volunteers will repair and renovate our buildings, landscape the grounds, and prepare for the upcoming summer season. It’s a chance to come together as the Angeles Crest family to keep our facilities in tip-top shape!

We would love to have you help us prepare the facility for our upcoming summer camps. There are a number of arrival/stay options for the work weekend so that you can choose what works best for you:

  1. Friday evening arrival – Head up to camp on Friday night (6:00-8:00 pm) after work or your other responsibilities, and be ready to go bright and early on Saturday morning. Please let us know if you are planning to come on Friday evening, so that we can make housing assignments.  No meal is offered on Friday evening.
  2. Saturday morning arrival – Saturday is the main work day, and you are welcome to arrive early on Saturday morning for the work day. Breakfast is available before the day begins @ 8:00 am, and lunch and dinner will be served later in the day.  The work day ends at 5:00 pm.
  3. Saturday evening stay – If you would like to stay over on Saturday evening that is available as well.  There is no organized program on Saturday evening but use of the chapel and game room is available for use.  Breakfast on Sunday morning will be made available.
