What's Included

Overview

Big Lake Youth Camp has served as an outdoor sanctuary for summer campers and retreats for the last 54 years. However, their location in Sisters, Oregon means harsh winters, which leads to severe tolls on several buildings which are now in need of repairs and updates. On this project volunteers will help with renovations as well as new cabin construction, painting, felling trees and cutting firewood, as well as general maintenance.

Scope

Cabin construction along with other camp maintenance.
