Who Can Go:
Campers Entering Grades 6 & Up

Raking leaves, stacking wood, clearing brush, floating docks, sweeping floors, washing windows: there’s so much to do to clean up PL after the winter and get ready for summer! We need your help, and there’s something to do for everyone!

Friday is informal: arrive and leave anytime 8:00 am – sundown or stay overnight. No meals provided on Friday as we are cleaning the kitchen so bring your own.  Feel free to come up after work and supper if you want to be here fresh for Saturday. It’s cold in the cabins so dress warmly and bring warm bedding.

Saturday Breakfast at 8 am is only for those who stayed over.

Coming just for Saturday? Arrive any time 8:30 or later, work ends by 4 pm. Lunch is served.

There is no fee for Jump Start Weekend, although donations are accepted.

Who may attend?
Adults over 18 years old and 9-12th graders. 6th-8th graders may register if they are accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them throughout the weekend such as a parent, or a youth group leader. Please, no children younger than 6th grade due to safety concerns.

Who needs a health form?
All minors need a health form. Health Form 1 is required for minors only (no doctor’s signature, just parents).  If you return later for a camp session you’ll need Form 2 signed by a doctor as well.
