WORK CAMP 2017 – Lake Lucerne Mid-August 2017 Date Estimated date August 8-11. All youth currently in 5th-12th grade (and friends welcome). They would like us to do drywalling in Aspen Cabin. Cost $50 (+food) per person for the youth lodge. Since there are no camps and our group is usually smaller than 25 people, we will provide our own meals. We will create a menu and accept food donations/contributions to keep our meal costs down. Other camp activities they are offering us are: waterfront (swimming), archery and ropes course. If you have experience drywalling and would like to help the youth and our United Methodist Camp on this trip, or if you would like to come along to chaperone and/or prepare meals for the group, please contact Pastor Pamela.
