About Volunteer Weekends

Volunteer Weekends at Camp Fire Camp Toccoa are an opportunity for alumni, staff and friends of camp to come together and show their dedication to the Camp Fire motto of “Give Service.”   Held monthly October through May, these weekends are a fun and exciting volunteer opportunity for campers of all ages!

What to Expect

Plan to arrive by 9 am on Saturday morning to begin your project.  You may also plan to arrive Friday before 9 pm and stay in our cabins, you will be asked to indicate your arrival time during registration.  Lunch will be served at 1:00 pm on Saturday afternoon.  We will meet Saturday morning to go over projects and divide into teams to complete each project.   Each team will have a leader and everyone will be able to pick which team they would like to be on.   Large groups may be divided, due to a limited number or tools, etc.  We will work together to get as many project completed throughout the day, often times the list is extensive!
