Volunteer Trail Work Weekend at Stratton Brook Hut

Upcoming Dates

Friday, June 9, 2017 - 2:00pm to Sunday, June 11, 2017 - 5:30pm

The second Volunteer Trail Work Weekend is June 9th-11th at Stratton Brook Hut. Volunteers will work alongside our professional trail builders and experienced group leaders to get the hut and trails ready for summer use. Outdoor projects include basic trail clearing and trimming,clearing culverts, identifying and repairing eroded areas, and redefining tread. There will be indoor tasks too; with the help of staff, volunteers will be preparing meals for the weekend and getting the hut ready for summer. All experience levels are welcome- if you can use the trails, you can help maintain them! There will be something for everyone, but please keep in mind that this is a full weekend of real work- responsible children over 12 are welcome to join, and will be expected to participate. Our staff and group leaders will do their best to match everyone to a project that suits their ability, and encourage regular breaks for snacks and stretching!

In exchange for your hard work, volunteers are provided food and lodging at no cost.
