Volunteers Welcome!

Right about now, most anything green looks really good. So imagine this... your RV parked at Big Sandy Camp for a week or two (or three). This gives you lots of time to help-out around camp and invest in kids. Perhaps even a little time to relax as well.

Maybe your home-away-from-home looks more like these pictured. Whatever your RV looks like, we’d like to talk to you about volunteering at camp. So give us a call. This could be a summer you’ll never forget or regret! Call Brian at 218-426-3389.
