FrOGs (Friends Of Gilmont)

Volunteer!   Be a FrOG (FRiend Of Gilmont)!  Bring a group from you church, or come with your family to Gilmont to volunteer.  You may choose to come for part or all of the designated time.  Work days have been set aside and each weekend we offer “perks” to our volunteers:

June 5-7, 2014   Perks: training in team-building and games; dutch oven cooking   Offered in early summer, this is a great weekend for families to come and get to know us before summer camp comes around!

August 14-16, 2014   Perks: training in clay and art projects    Offered at the end of summer camp, this weekend helps us transition into retreat season.

September 19-20, 2014  Perks:  training in storytelling

December 4-6, 2014   Perks:  Christmas art and decorating by re-purposing items at your church
