If you have never been to a work weekend/volunteer event before or if your family has been coming for years. we encourage you to sign up today! They are a wonderful no-cost way to spend time on Sandy Island with your camp family!
A lot of Work, a lot of FUN!!
We all share a love of Sandy Island and are committed to helping maintain its beauty, timelessness, and most importantly, it’s community. Join us for Sandypalooza and contribute to the care & beautification of this amazing Island!
Save the weekend of May 14-16, 2021! Catch the Big Sandy over to Sandy on Friday in time to join us for Dinner. Saturday will be a mix of work & play, of course including a Sandy dance! Stay through lunch on Sunday before catching a boat off to the mainland.
This event is fun for all ages! We will be doing typical work weekend projects such as painting, raking, picking up sticks, clearing trees that have fallen over the winter, splitting/stacking wood, general cleaning, and of course dishes! We also plan to set up the new beds, mattresses and chairs that were purchased this summer. Specific tasks will be sent to everyone who is registered a week before Sandypalooza to prep & plan ahead for the weekend. There will also be adult led kid friendly “work activities” for ages Cave & up on Saturday morning.
We are always looking for awesome volunteers at the end of the summer. Tasks can vary depending on your skills & interests, we typically need help in program, waterfront and kitchen!!
Join us the week after Labor Day Weekend for our Retired Guys & Gals work week! This is a great opportunity to help complete small projects around camp using your talents. We always have things to build, paint and clean!! This is a super fun chance to end your summer on the Lake!
Summer has ended, and it is time to pack up camp! Join us for one last hurrah and help us close down cabins, pack up supplies, and put Sandy Island to sleep for the winter months.
