On Saturday, May 2, Lions Camp Horizon will be undertaking its annual Spring Cleanup. We invite you, your friends and family to come out and help us get the grounds and the buildings ready for the 2015 camping season.
This year we will be conducting a total of six camping sessions, four of which are regular programs and two of which are the smaller “Adventure Camp” style. Our camper are getting ready, we should be too! Over 40% of our campers have already registered. Early May is a great time to come together and help get Camp Horizon ready to welcome our special needs campers. One of the main reasons that your District’s Camp Horizon has been able to keep our camper fees relatively low is through the use of volunteers to undertake work such as the Spring Cleanup and meal service during the camping season.
The 2015 Spring Cleanup scope of work includes general cleanup in some buildings, installation of window blinds, some minor carpentry, painting, landscape maintenance, pressure washing of sidewalks and exterior staircases, moving some furniture and mattresses, etc. We will supply the materials (lumber, paint, paintbrushes, etc.) for the work but if at all possible we ask that you bring your own tools for the type of work you would prefer to undertake. We particularly would appreciate 3-4 volunteers bringing pressure washers (and supply hoses) to accommodate the scope of pressure washing identified. Also, we may be short of step ladders (6’) so if you are able to bring one, that would also help expedite the work.
Spring Cleanup will start at 800AM, with registration, coffee, etc. in the Dining Hall. Camp Horizon will also be supplying lunch. We intend to complete our day’s work by 400PM. Do not worry if you have to arrive a bit later or leave a bit earlier. We appreciate all of the help!
Thank you for your support of District 19H’s Camp Horizon.
