Cross Roads Camp & Retreat Center Spring Work Day May 5th

Cross Roads Camp & Retreat Center has scheduled a Spring Work Day. By volunteering your valuable time on Saturday, May 5, you help Cross Roads change young people’s lives! This day is focused on getting camp ready for summer, which entails tending to safety and aesthetics around camp. You will be a part of the change for many people that will be here this summer!

Arrive at 8am for breakfast and stay through the afternoon, with a delicious lunch break in the middle! There are projects for skilled workers (like roof work and weed-whacking) as well as projects for anyone willing to join us (like painting, mulching, and clearing areas of debris).

Contact Jennifer Blanford with any interested or questions or register on the camp website and please let them know if you have experience with any particular work project.

Unable to join us on May 5, but interested in helping around camp? Please contact the Crossroads Office at (908) 832-7264 to arrange a time to come.
