Volunteer Opportunities - Turner Camp is a significant size
business entity for the five months around camp season and takes a
lot of effort to ensure things run smoothly. Outside of Dave
Cross, our facility manager, and the seasonal youth counselors and
pool staff. The operations at Turner Camp are run entirely by
volunteers. If you own a one room cottage. For a bit over
$1,000 each year you enjoy all of the things which camp offers
including the nine-week youth camp program for your children, a
heated pool, tennis, pickle ball, & volleyball courts, $100
to spend at the Rathskeller that has entertainment every weekend in
season, and all the gemutlichkeit unique to Turner Camp.
Sooooooo, to help us keep the Camp experience affordable and going
into our 2nd century
we have some volunteer openings coming up for the 2017 season.
It would be great to get some new enthusiastic people to start
working with our current chairmen to have a nice easy transition.
I've heard from some but here's what's still needed.
Store - thanks to Shawn Dahm & Barb Litza for leading the Candy
Store for the last 10 years or so! They've given the store a
fresh look, expanded the menu, and have brought 1000s of smiles to
little faces. They are retiring after this season and we're
looking for a person or two to work with them this summer to learn
the ropes and take over in 2017. Primary duties are getting and
keeping the store clean over the summer, ordering and stocking
product, and coordinating the assigned volunteers. Please see
Shawn or Barb if interested for more information.
- thanks to Dave Zweifel for stepping forward and agreeing to be
the new Pool Chairman!!!
- thanks to Laura Oroni and Ashley Livingston for their many years
as our youth co-chairs! Laura and Ashley went from campers, to
youth staff and finally Youth Committee co-chairs and have helped
guide the program in the Turner traditions as well as working with
the staff each year to introduce new activities like lacrosse, cheer
dance, and cooking. Primary duties include overseeing the
hiring of the youth staff and day to day leadership of the program
along with the youth staff directors. and So please see Laura and
Ashley for more info if you are interested in helping lead the youth
program in 2017.

July Rib Team -
would like to thank all of you who came out and supported the dinner
over the weekend. It has been a long time since we have seen
the Raths that crowded for a meal and we hope you all enjoyed
yourselves. It was good to catch up with Turner friends and
share a meal and a story all while celebrating our Nation's
birthday. A great deal of work went into bringing that
meal to all of you and it couldn't have been done without the great
support of the crew and a handful of volunteers. Special
thanks go out to those volunteers: Gregg Stark, Sue Allen, Debbie
Allen and May Becker for seeing we needed help and not waiting to be
asked but stepping right in and doing it. Have a wonderful rest
of the Summer and stay tuned for our next meal plans. With Turner
