We are incredibly grateful!
We will have completed all aspects of the immediate concern recovery by the end of May - before the beginning of Summer Camp. Then our volunteer efforts will slow until the fall, when we will make a big push to finish clearing and beautifying our trail system, painting the chapel and two other buildings, and doing general maintenance around the camp.
If you have a love for Dogwood Acres and would like to help, we would be very appreciative. Your on-the-ground support is very, very encouraging to the Staff and DWA Ministry Team!
James Vance will be coordinating the volunteer efforts. Please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 850-933-3985 to inquire about work days or to offer your services.
HURRICANE RECOVERY: Please monitor our Homepage and this area for information about how volunteers will play a big part in Dogwood Acres' recovery. As we work with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance personnel and others who are staying and working in the area, we are also welcoming individuals and small groups of volunteers!
Thanks for your interest and support – we look forward to seeing you at Dogwood soon!
In more "normal" times: There are many ways that you can help our presbytery’s Outdoors Ministry, and every few months between Sepetmber and May, we set aside a Saturday for folks who enjoy getting out into nature and helping with hands-on projects. These events are planned for individuals and/or small groups. Activities will range from trail blazing to painting, to carpentry projects, landscaping and gardening, and general maintenance. Whether you have a teen that needs to put in volunteer hours, a Sunday school class that loves to get out and do things together, or you are an individual that just wants to support our ministry, please consider signing up for a day at Dogwood Acres.
James Vance, our Property Ministry Team coordinator, and others from our DWA Ministry Team will supervise. Please email James at email@example.com to let him know the kinds of things you feel comfortable helping with. He keeps a list of a variety of projects and can also customize a day’s work to fit your abilities.
