2018 Spring Camp Community Volunteer Day

Volunteer With Camp Esquagama!

Volunteer & help support Camp Esquagama through building new fun activities and getting camp ready for the summer!

June 9, 2018

Join us this spring as we get Camp Esquagama ready for Summer 2017!  We have a variety of projects from wiping down the logs in the lodge to splitting wood for campfires to constructing new camp activities!


Work begins at 9am where we will split into teams.  Lunch is provided by Camp Esquagama and will be served at noon.  1pm we get back at it while singing camp songs and reminiscing about summers past.  The full day concludes at 4pm.  Contact the camp office to register!

How do I register?

There is no online registration.  Instead, please contact our Camp Office at (218)-865-6589 or robert@campesquagama.com so that we may have you down as a volunteer.

Stay overnight?

If you are joining us from out of town Friday night and need a place to stay, our cabins will be available as well as the land sports field if you wish to pitch a tent instead.  Cereal and oatmeal will be available Saturday at 8am for any volunteers who stayed overnight.  Please let our camp office now if you re planning on staying over Friday night.

Camper Volunteers?

Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a legal adult chaperone.

What will we be doing?

We have projects both indoors and outdoors as well as projects with differing levels of physical activities.

  • wiping down logs
  • cleaning the facilities
  • raking pine cones and needles off of the trails
  • cutting fallen trees
  • splitting wood
  • finishing construction on platform tents
  • installing the swimming dock
  • and more

What if I need to leave early?

No problem. If you are only able to come out for a couple hours, then you have already made our day thanks to your motivation to help out the camp.

Can I bring a group of people?

Yes you can!  Go ahead and organize your book club, youth group, scout troop, lodge members, or family friends to help out.  The more hands we have the more we can get done!  If you wanted to organize your group for a separate time to come and volunteer out of the kindness of your own hearts or to earn service hours, just give us a call at the camp office (218)-865-6589.

Will there be other Volunteer Days in the future?

Yes!  We are planning on a possible volunteer day in the fall to help us put summer stuff away and get camp ready for fall, winter, and spring activities.  You can also contact us about organizing your own private group volunteer day if you want to help out or are looking to earn some service hours.

Please be patient while we process your registration.
