Each year we open the Camp for the summer season with a fun-filled session when volunteers can come for FREE in exchange for some hard work! During this session we welcome participants of all skill levels to help clean the buildings, make minor repairs, and get our summer off to a good start with their love, service, and elbow grease. If you should happen to have carpentry or construction skills, we almost always have a project underway that needs your help! Come and giggle and sweat the day away with like-minded friends while really being of service to A.R.E. Camp!

The garden must be planted! If you can come Memorial Weekend, see Garden Weekend event.

Cabins and Elbow Grease and Composting Toilets, Oh My!

Construction Camp lasts from May 29 - June 8. Come for a few days or stay the whole time! 

Please note: Construction Camp is generally geared toward adults, but we welcome young campers (those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult guardian), who want to pitch in to help beautify Camp for the coming season! Come one, come all!

Remember, the setting is rustic, bring apparel for all kinds of mountain weather -- rain or shine!
