This service project is all about giving back to our own community by helping to maintain one of our favorite aspects of this area -- the wonderful nature trails. Through partnerships with Friends of Hopewell Valley Open Spaces we will be able to directly contribute to the maintenance and longevity of our beautiful open spaces. This is a great chance for campers to help give back to their community while learning technical and leadership skills.
