‘Roll Up Your Sleeves’ weekend at YMCA Camp Ockanickon

YMCA Camp Ockanickon will host its Roll Up Your Sleeves weekend April 27 to April 29. Come and join us at camp for a weekend of work and play. Roll up your sleeves is a great opportunity for families to spend some quality time together and give back. When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change right in your own neighborhood.

Camp staff will develop a task list ranging from jobs that require no specific skills to jobs that require someone with carpentry, plumbing or electrical skills. We also make sure that there are tasks for families with small children. All volunteers get to pick their assignments.

After work is completed participants can join in camp activities to include boating and archery. Each family will stay in their own cabin and will need to bring their own bedding. Camp serves six meals during the weekend including a Friday night buffet. Check in begins at 6 p.m. on Friday and the Camp Ockanickon Dining Hall and checkout is 1 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, fee and to register please call 609–654–8225 or visit us at www.ycamp.org.
