Volunteers Needed for Youth Camp Clean Up This Weekend

May 7th, 2013

by Shawn McKeon, MUCC Youth Camp Coordinator

Spring is finally here in Mid-Michigan and as far as the Michigan OutofDoors Youth Camp is concerned that can only mean one thing!!  It is time for the annual Volunteer Camp Clean Up event.  Since we moved camp to Cedar Lake dozens of clubs and volunteers have spent 100’s of labor hours renovating, improving, cleaning, and making the camp safe for all of our summer campers and rental groups throughout the season. Without the helping hands of volunteers our camp would not be the beautiful facility and education center it is today.

In the past whether it has been installing a new fishing dock, putting new screens on the cabins, or building a yurt so our daycamp partners have a place to learn, our volunteers have always stepped to the plate to help give the Cedar Lake Outdoor Center the best facility possible.

With that in mind the time has come for this year’s clean up days.  We will be sprucing up the camp on Friday May 10th and Saturday May 11th.  Friday we will be working from Noon- until 5PM and Saturday the big day we will be back at it starting bright and early at 8AM and working throughout the day.  Lunch will be provided on Saturday to all of our volunteers so come ready to work up an appetite!

This year projects will include brush clearing we had a large amount of pine branches come down over the winter so bring your chain saws and hand saws,  cabin and building cleaning, staining and waterproofing the decks, and other assorted tasks.

So grab your friends and fellow club members, your Carharts/work gloves, your saws and other helpful tools, and come down and lend a hand at camp.

Please RSVP: Camp Director Shaun McKeon, smckeon@mucc.org or 517-346-6466
