MUCH ACCOMPLISHED AT WORK & PLAY RETREAT
Over Memorial Day weekend, a group of 35 volunteers came to RMMC and volunteered with a variety of camp projects. There are a lot of details in getting camp ready for summer, and the extra hands is greatly appreciated. Projects included deep cleaning rustic cabins, restocking firewood, setting up the volleyball court, putting the boats in the pond shed, distributing mulch on trails, turning on water to winterized facilities, cooking food for everyone, and more! Of course on Sunday there was plenty of time to play as a bonus for working so hard on Saturday. Participants went hiking, kayaking on the pond, played games, and enjoyed the view from a sunny deck chair. Thank you to everyone who helped bring camp into the summer season!
MENNONITE DISASTER SERVICE CONTINUES TO REMOVE INFESTED TREES
Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS) offered their services and equipment again this year for a week in late May to help remove more Spruce Beetle infested trees in danger of falling down. The volunteers felled 40 affected trees and prepared already cut trees to be moved out of the forest. There were also three trailer loads of logs delivered to the saw mill. The slash was gathered, sent through the chipper and turned into mulch which was distributed around camp.
ROOTS MUSIC: 2 OPTIONS FOR SUMMER FUN
The Colorado Roots Music Camp happening in June is almost here (June 2-8). If you missed signing up for June, there is another option in August (4-10) which still has space available for participants! Don’t miss out on the fun of hearing music in the mountains. If you are not musically inclined, there is still room for volunteers to help in the kitchen, housekeeping or maintenance. Check out the Roots Music webpage for more details or contact RMMC to volunteer.
Summer Staff leaders arrived at camp only to be welcomed by a late snow fall. On Wednesday, May 29th, a few inches of snow fell throughout the day. Our staff who came from Indiana, Pennsylvania and Kansas were excited and confused about the crazy Colorado weather.
