Help us shake out the dust, clean out the cabins, and get ready for another summer of fun at our annual volunteer day at Chewonki.

Margaret Ellis Day, named in memory of our longtime health center director, gardener, and farmer, is a chance to visit Chewonki, enjoy the spring weather, and prepare the campus for hundreds of eager campers. Tasks may include raking, painting, sweeping, gardening, trail maintenance, and cleaning out activity spaces. 

“This is one of my favorite days of the year, not only because we get to remember and honor Margaret by mucking around in her beautiful gardens at this wonderful place, but also because we get a chance to do it with other beloved friends whom we don’t otherwise see enough of.” -Susie Stedman
