Note: We are keeping an eye on the current health crisis and making decisions as information is available. We are still planning for summer, but we're also planning virtual volunteer activities as a backup in case it is unsafe for our staff, volunteers, and campers to gather in person. Regardless, we will have volunteer opportunities available this summer!
