Summer is almost here, and so are all the campers!


Join us for a Service Weekend this May 31 – June 2 to prepare Camp Namanu for a summer full of fun! Service Weekends are a great opportunity to reconnect with community, Namanu, and the outdoors.

This Service Weekend there will be many ways that you can support Camp Namanu and its readiness for 2019! Here are just some of the ways you can help:

1. Chopping Wood and Kindling
2. Trail Clearing
3. Moving Benches and Tables
4. Cabin and Deck Cleaning

…And More!

What you should know about Volunteer Service Weekends: 

  • Please RSVP! You can find the registration form below. It helps us prepare for meals and lodging.
  • Please note that Child Care is not offered during our Service Weekends, but you are welcome to have young ones help you with projects.
  • We do not take cabin reservations – it’s first come, first serve unless we have a large group coming and they need to be housed together (i.e. Scout Troop).
  • We will have traditional camp meals prepared by fellow volunteers in our camp kitchen. If you have a dietary restriction please let us know when registering for the event and we will do our best to accommodate.
  • Feel free to come for a day or all of the weekend. Any ounce of energy and effort is greatly appreciated!
  • Please leave all pets at home.
