Spend some time at Tomahawk assisting camp rangers
Camp rangers can often use some extra help with minor construction, remodeling and other work. This would usually be during the off-season. Helping out is a good way to spend some time at camp and put some of your skills to work. You may even be able to pick up some new skills if you are just willing to help out. You can usually arrange to stay in one of the camp cabins with cooking facilities during your volunteer time (beds are provided but not bedding—bring a sleeping bag or sheets & blankets).
Useful skills include carpentry, roofing, masonry, plumbing, electrical, skid-steer operation, backhoe operation, auto/truck mechanics, painting, woodworking and general labor.
If you are interested in helping in any way please contact Brian Halloran at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-254-9178
