Camp Gold Hollow Work Weekends

Every Spring and Fall, friends and supporters of Camp Gold Hollow put on their work gloves and spend a day or weekend volunteering to help open camp for the coming season. There are many projects to do to wake up camp from the winter and get things ready for the summer. 

Volunteers of all ages (especially energetic teenagers) are welcome!
