Work Weekend

Finishing projects and setting the stage for life-changing adventures


Work Weekend is a volunteer opportunity that sets the stage for all the life-changing adventures that happen at Camp Bighorn. Hosted twice each year, this overnight invitation is a great way to join old friends and take care of the place we all love so dearly. Projects generally include landscaping, cabin cleaning, and trail maintenance, with special projects including jobs like welding, course maintenance, building new adventure features, and more.

So call up your friends and grab those work gloves, it's time hit the road for Camp Bighorn!

Upcoming Dates

Spring 2024: Friday, April 26th - Sunday, April 28th
