Fall Volunteer Day Scheduled for November 3rd

Individuals, families or groups may SIGN UP / MAKE RESERVATIONS to join us for Camp Discovery’s Spring Volunteer Day on November 3, 2012.

Attendance may include either the AM Shift which is 9 AM – noon or the PM Shift which is 1 PM – 3 PM or both. If your group would enjoy bringing a bag lunch with drinks, lunch will be from noon until 1:00 PM. (Indoor and outdoor areas will be available.)

“Release of Liability” forms are required for youth and adults. (You may download these from the Forms portion of this website.)

Because of indoor space limitations, if we have a huge number of volunteers making reservations, the activities may be postponed in the event of inclement weather. Note: If that should occur, a message will be placed on the camp’s answering machine at (803) 754-2008 and on the website.

Many of the groups who visit Camp Discovery help us prepare for other visitors who may be less able to do service.

If you have a group, club or Sunday School Class who would like to come to the camp and participate in a service menu please use the Group Needs Assessment form to apply for a date/time, or contact the camp at 803.754.2008
