August 10th - August 15th we will be assistance in building anything the camp needs. Due to Covid-19, most of their volunteer groups cancelled for the year. Starting Thursday, we will be holding a retreat, that will run August 13th-15th.
August 13th-15th. Our check in will be at 5:00 p.m. on the 13th and the retreat will run through August 15th ending at 12:00 p.m. There will be kayaking, horseback riding, the BLOB, and a bag toss tournament.
Cost of the retreat is $50. We encourage you to share this event with your church Men's group or come by yourself!
We will be staying in the cabins and beds are provided. Please bring your own bedding!
Here is the great news, if you plan to help work Monday- Thursday, there is no cost for food and lodging. Wildwood has cabins with A/C, beds, showers, and bathrooms. All you needs to bring is your tools and bedding. The tools needed for the project will be basic carpentry tools.
While we would love to have you the entire time, we welcome you to come down even if it is just for a day or two. On our registration, you will be able to select your dates of availability. This will help us determine what size our crew will be each day.
