After the October 10, 2018 hurricane, over 500 people volunteered over 3,000 hours to help with the recovery at Dogwood Acres.


We are incredibly grateful!


We have completed all aspects of the recovery to our buildings and campus area and trails!


If you have a love for Dogwood Acres and would like to help with our ongoing maintenance, we would be very appreciative.  Your on-the-ground support is very helpful to the Staff and DWA Ministry Team!

James Vance will be coordinating the volunteer efforts.  Please email him at or call him at 850-933-3985 to inquire about work days or to offer your services.  


Thank you!


COVID-19 update: (12/8/21) We take the safety, health, and well being of all our volunteers and guests very seriously. We have reduced the number of people and hours on the ground at Dogwood Acres  and look forward to larger groups coming back when the pandemic is no longer an issue.  In the meantime, if you would like to get some fresh air and enjoy some safe projects, please consider joining us, a few at a time, as we work on new trails, landscaping, and other projects.  



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 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.
