Maintenance

Getting to spend the summer outdoors, our maintenance crew are the unsung heroes of camp. Trash collection, basic grounds upkeep and cleaning and stocking bathrooms may not be sexy, but if not done right, it can overshadow all the fun that happens at camp. Campers complain, parents get angry and pull their campers out, and the camps suffer. Our dedicated staff makes sure this doesn’t happen.
