YMCA Camp Chingachgook on Lake George will be hosting a volunteer work weekend April 27-28.  This is an opportunity for members of the community, alumni and anyone interested in lending a hand to help open camp in preparation for an amazing summer with over 2000 campers.  Please join us in giving back to this wonderful Camp.

There are work projects available for enthusiastic skilled and unskilled volunteers.  Projects include cleaning cabins, setting-up campfire pits, painting, and planting the Camp’s garden and flower beds.  These will be done between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. each day. 

Saturday’s meals include breakfast, lunch and dinner; on Sunday breakfast and lunch will be served free of charge as a Thank You.  Along with these free meals, cozy Adirondack-style cabins will also be available for overnight accommodations at no charge.  After working on Saturday afternoon, volunteers will be able to participate in family-friendly recreational activities such as hiking, archery, and the climbing tower.

Chingachgook sits on the quiet east shore of Lake George in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. The 200 acres of YMCA property is surrounded by thousands of acres of forever wild forest preserve with a trail network of over 50 miles through wetlands and woodlands, along the lake shore, and over mountain summits.
