Work Weekends

Interested in Work Weekends?

Join our Friends of Rapidan Email List for updates a few times per year about work weekends, renting at camp, and membership.

The 2015 Fall Work Weekend will be October 8–11 . Put it on your calendar, and we hope to see you there! We need volunteers with any sort of useful skills—electrical work, painting, carpentry, cleaning—and even if you have no skills whatsoever you can learn some at camp.

Please contact JD Foster if you would like to volunteer, or if you have any questions.

What is a Work Weekend?

During a work weekend, volunteers come to camp and work on many projects to keep the cabins and grounds in good shape, and improve them as well. It's a fun time for camp members to spend time together, and also for non-members to see all of camp and consider whether they might want to become members. Work Weekends begin Friday afternoon, and end Sunday afternoon; volunteers are welcome for the entire time or just part of that time. The busiest period is Saturday, when the largest number of volunteers are working.
