Volunteer Day 2018 | Surprise Lake Camp

Volunteer Day 2018

Volunteer Day is a great way for those who have been to camp before to get an early dose of that SLC magic and for people who are new to camp to make new friends and start feeling like camp is a second home.  Those who have participated before have uniformly reported a deep satisfaction from putting in a wholesome day of work in support of SLC.  And you can't beat the spirit and camaraderie! 

Projects include cleaning, painting, spreading wood chips, gardening, and a wide range of projects designed to improve and beautify camp.  

All you need to bring with you is a hat, a water bottle, sturdy shoes (no flip flops, please!) and your enthusiasm. Children are welcome, but are expected to work on the same project as their parents, and teens are organized into special teen groups.  You are also encouraged to bring guests who have not been to SLC before.  For teens who need to log community service hours, we will provide a letter documenting participation.

The day starts at 10:00 am (coffee and snack served at 9:30) and ends at 4 pm.  We provide the projects, the tools, direction, and a kosher barbeque lunch.
