Work Weekends

Use your skills and experience to give back to your outdoor ministry! Please share with us about your gifts, skills, experience, and interests. Anyone affiliated with Caroline Furnace is eligible to volunteer on a committee. Some committees require appointment by the Board of Directors due to access to confidential information. If you are interested in serving on the Board of Directors, your information will be shared with the nominating task force.

Paul Bunyan Weekend

Paul Bunyan Weekend is a smaller Work Weekend dedicated to tree removal in high usage areas. We split into crews on Saturday to:

  • Drop trees that are dead, dying or growing too close to structures

  • Split and stack firewood from the trees that are cut

  • Clear downed trees from trails

  • Restock firewood racks at campfire circles

  • Chip limbs and spread mulch

Spring and Fall Work Weekends may involve any number of projects, to include construction (sheds, docks, low ropes elements, bridges, facility updates), interior work (hanging drywall, painting, refinishing floors), trail maintenance, brush clearing, and basic repairs. It varies from season to season based upon current needs and crew size.
