Do you love Lazy W Ranch?  Do you want to serve?  Do you want to spend a couple days and nights at camp?  We are happy to announce camp is OPEN to individuals and families with a desire to volunteer!  Without staff to maintain facilities during the pandemic closure since March, there is much to be done!  There are leaves to be raked, woodpecker holes to be filled, steps and walkways to be swept, painting, small repairs and general cleaning.  If desired, overnight stays in one of our cabins or tent camping will be provided meeting social distancing guidelines for each volunteer.  Food service will not be provided but we have the facilities to accommodate basic cooking needs.  Please contact us at the Lazy W office to make your reservation and be a volunteer today!
