We’ll have work for people of every skill level. Yes, there will be some special projects, though to make our beloved camp shine, we need a good outdoor spring cleaning! So maybe you’ll be put on special assignment, or maybe you’ll be raking up the winter detris around a building, or maybe you’ll be charged with opening up one of our trails. But in any event you’ll go home feeling a little tired (the good kind) and a little sore (the important kind) and feeling good about the difference you made. Bring your family, your youth group,or a team from church. We can’t do it without your help! Please no younger children or pets for safety reasons.
The list so far:
New Roof on Fernal (summer cabin in Denton)
Deep cleaning the yard around Agape and elsewhere
Opening and maintaining trails.
Check back here as we get closer!
Many of the Holmestrails lost their blazes when trees fell down after the tornadoes went through the area about a year and a half ago. Several trails became impassable. Our staff and volunteers have hiked these trails and have been blazing as much as they can. We are adding new markers to show where trails start, intersect, and end. Now we need your help! Our trails still have some debris on them and are in need of some TLC.
If you are comfortable using a chainsaw, please bring it! If not, please bring your own hand loppers, brush cutters, work gloves, rakes, and hand tools if you have them to help!
Do to safety concerns around the work being done, please to not bring children under the age of 11, or pets to this event. Anyone under 18 should be accompanied by an adult.
If you let us know that you are coming by April 27 we will provide you lunch. If you decide at the last minute feel free to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy it with good company!
Are youth groups welcome?
You bet! But please call us and let us know how many are planning to come and what the age groups are. We will not put your group out with a work party using chainsaws. Since this is work involving tools and sharp blades, we ask you to bring one adult for every four young people. And also bring the yard equipment listed above.
