You will be assigned to a pod of three people and given four work shifts (probably about 3 hours each). If you can’t make a work shift, you are responsible to find someone to replace you. Watch out for an email in the next week or two with assignments.
We serve a group lunch daily at 12:30 which is also our daily camp meeting, camp announcements, etc.
We also serve dinner every evening from 6 - 8:30, which you are welcome to come eat at any time in that window.
There will be some snacks available if you miss a meal or want more food, but please be self sufficient and bring something nice in case you feel like you need a little nosh, mk?
