Opening Wolfeboro, what does it look like and how do I join?

Most Scouts have seen Camp Wolfeboro all set up and ready to go, the Waterfront’s boats are in the water, Scoutcraft’s ropes are ready-at-hand and the Dining Hall is ready for hungry campers.  But there are many things done behind the scenes to make the Camp machine run smoothly.  The two main work parties before the summer camp staff arrives are the Opening Weekend and, spring Order of the Arrow Ordeal.  The 2014 Opening Weekend begins on Friday May 30st and goes through Sunday June 1st.  The Ordeal weekend Camp volunteers bring their skills and tools to set up the electrical, water systems and open buildings.  During Opening Weekend the power, well water and buildings to occupy until the work crew has them running.  Don’t worry if you aren’t a construction expert.  There will be people who already have plumbing, electrical and maintenance skills that want to teach you about opening Wolfeboro.
This year the Properties Team is extending the work party invitation to adults and scouts 16 years and older.  It is possible that camp water and power sources will not be operational.  Be prepared with your own tent and mess kit.  Bring full water bottles.  Food will be provided.
