BCH Volunteer Work Day

Join us for a day of fun, fellowship and a bit of hard work as we continue to develop the Barbara C. Harris Camp & Conference Center. Be a part of our Annual Volunteer Work Day. Details coming soon!

The day provides opportunities for you and members of your church to join others from the diocese in providing hands-on support to this important ministry. Whatever your skills or interests, you’ll find opportunities to make an important contribution to the future of the camp. Whether it be with a paint brush or a hammer, a rake or broom, or just lending a helping hand, you can make a difference.

When is the Work Day?

2015 date coming soon! Please check back often for more information.

  • 9:00 AM: Work throughout the camp
  • 12:00 PM: Lunch
  • 1:00 PM: Work throughout the camp

What will we be doing?

The camp has a number of important projects that it could use help with. Some of these include:

  • Hiking trail maintenance
  • Splitting Firewood
  • Wood Chipping
  • Adding mulch to the low and high ropes courses
  • Landscaping

Can our church group pick a particular project for the Work Day?

If you are coming as part of a church group and have a particular idea in mind or specialized skills you’d like to contribute, we’d be happy to work with you to find just the right project. Call us at (603) 547-3400 to discuss.

What should we bring?

Volunteers are encouraged to bring basic hand tools (hammers, handsaws, etc.) and garden tools (rakes, shovels, etc.) Those with the proper skills and experience are also encouraged to bring power tools such as drills, circular saws and chainsaws. Everyone should come dressed to work outdoors and bring along work gloves.

How do I sign-up to attend?

In order to prepare for the event, the camp needs to know how many people will be participating. We ask that you let us know you’re coming no later than April 27, 2015. You can do so by giving us a call at (603) 547-3400 or e-mail info@bchcenter.org.

Can anyone attend?

We’d welcome the help of anyone of wants to participate. However, we do ask that youth be supervised by their parents or adults from their church.

Can we spend the night?

Yes, this is not only a great chance to contribute to the Camp & Conference Center, but also to spend the night and enjoy our great facilities and setting. Volunteers can spend the night in one of our cabins on either Friday or Saturday evening for only $10 per person. Space is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis.
