Camp Volunteers
Volunteers are the success of Ruskoka Camp. Many of our campers would not be able to go to camp were it not for the efforts of many dedicated, hard working volunteers. Join us this summer, for a week or two, and help us create the experience of a lifetime for our future generation. We particularly need help with:
Camp kitchen! No previous experience required. Help with preparing meals, serving, and cleanup in the modern, well-equipped camp kitchen. For a satisfying and fun summer experience, join the kitchen team!
Camp activities! We need volunteers to teach classes (Russian language, history, religion), conduct choir rehearsals, plan and rehearse Russian plays, and organize talent shows.
Camp maintenance! We need help with general repairs, fixing camp equipment, and general physical labour around camp. Always a fun project to do.
Please tell us what you would like to help with and which weeks you are available.

Work Weekend and Construction Volunteers
This summer, we have many projects at camp. Our next work weekend is in just 1 week, on June 5th and 6th, 2010. Indoor accommodations and delicious meals are always provided.

E-mail  alex@ruskoka.oles.ca  or call  416 232 0829 if you have any questions.

See you at Ruskoka Camp,
Alik
