What's Included

Overview

Camp Whitesand is located 30 minutes west of Yorkton, Saskatchewan, along the beautiful Whitesand River and is surrounded by a natural forest. The natural surroundings provide over 12km of trails used for horseback riding and outdoor activities. The river is a great place for water sports, canoeing, and swimming.
Camp Whitesand is requesting assistance in building a new structure for their craft building that burned down a couple of years ago. Volunteers will be framing as well as helping with other renovations needed on camp: cutting trees, tiling a kitchen, pouring a cement pad, mudding and taping cabins, and roofing.
