Camp Toccoa Work Weekend 2015

Camp Toccoa in North Georgia was a great weekend for Community Service & Impact Projects. Most consumers don't realize the work that goes into making sure everyone has a good time & experience life changing excitement! Several groups from all over Georgia volunteered to do a list of chores that included:


1. Update the playground & spread the hay.
2. Clean or replace all the lodge screens.
3. Set up the dining hall tables.
4. Clean all the debris & cobwebs from the rooftops.
5. Clean & dust all the units.
6. Update all the flowerbeds & weed.
7. Clean the pool perimeter, signs & bathrooms.
8. Organize the tack room at the horse stables.
9. Clear the walking trails.
10. Trim all plants & trees along the road.


All we did was #3 & #10 and they were worn out. I thought about all the times I showed up at a resort expecting everything to be in place & perfect. While most of us are sleeping, somebody is working, planning & solving problems to make sure they see smiles.

Day 1 consisted of a full day of work, but it was worth it in so many ways! The students went hiking, made a campfire, concurred their fears, climbed a rock quarry, visited Toccoa Falls, and made a big difference in a small way.


There is plenty of work left before the summer so I hope more people will volunteer their time. As each day passes, more items get checked off the list and more goals are met!

A special thank you goes out to my chaperons, Jeff Ferguson & Jerone Sampson, parent volunteer, Mrs. Anderson, and camp director Kyle McSherry.
