As a volunteer, you can also take advantage of free camping that weekend from April 29  – May 1. If you are planning to camp, you can reserve your site when you call or use the code “springcamping22” when you book online.

You can rent a tent and sleeping bag inexpensively from the Ferris Rec Center for a nice service getaway in a beautiful location.
