Friends Camp Work Weekend

May 17May 19


Our annual work weekend is just around the corner, and we are looking for more hands to help get work done! So far we have had an intrepid group of 10 volunteers sign up; we hope for 40-50 total volunteers.

Work weekend is happening Friday, May 17 - Sunday, May 19, at Friends Camp in South China, ME. Tasks for the weekend will include:

  • raking
  • clearing pathways of sticks & branches
  • setting up the new Health Hut furniture
  • cleaning
  • painting -- inside and outside
  • minor construction projects
  • preparing the flower beds
  • preparing the vegetable garden

Come prepared for physical labor, although we can adapt work to people's different abilities. Please use this link or the button below to register, and to find some more details. Families are welcome to attend and work, but we do not offer a children's program or childcare during this weekend. Kids of all ages are welcome, and we will do our best to accommodate your family!

We provide basic meals Friday dinner thru Sunday breakfast, and you are welcome to attend for any portion of the weekend or the entire time. Many folks choose to just do a work day on Saturday! You should pack warm clothes and bedding, gardening tools or rakes if you have them, work gloves, and a flashlight. Please leave alcohol at home. We'll have a campfire after the workday on Saturday.
