Camp 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.

Candy 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.

Pool - thanks to Dave Zweifel for stepping forward and agreeing to be the new Pool Chairman!!!

Youth - 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.

The 4th of 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 Greetings, The 4th of July crew

Camp 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.  Here's what's needed.

-·Candy 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.

-·Pool -€“ thanks to Scott Garelli for leading the pool for the last four years!  The pool is always our go to place for fun in the sun and Scott and his crew have done a great job making sure everything is ready for our enjoyment.  He is retiring so we're looking for a person or two to spearhead the pool committee and learn the ins and outs this summer and take over in 2017.  Primary duties are coordinating the annual pool facility clean up in the spring, and ongoing monitoring over the summer.  Please see Scott if interested for more information.

-·Youth -€“ 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.
