With the late spring weather and the cold temps here at Northern Pines Camp and Retreat Center, we are Doing What We Can to get the camp ready for the summer season and the Governor's Fishing Opener weekend in Park Rapids. While we haven't gone as far as really shoveling the snow off the lake, we have certainly thought about it.
The excitement is building as our staff is busy cleaning buildings with the help of electric heaters. Not daring to even attempt to turn the water on to those buildings they carry buckets of hot water where needed.
Help is on the way for the three dedicated guys on Sunday, May 5th. A Doing What We Can Spring Cleanup Event will take place from 11:30 to when the last have to leave. All are invited to join us for pancakes and sausage served from 11:30 to 12:30 pm and then get instructions to the areas where cleanup is needed. Tasks include: yardwork, ironing, moving picnic tables, windows, making up beds, getting kyaks & canoes out and other various tasks.
It is less than a week before hundreds of people from all across the state will be onsite and we are Doing What We Can to make Northern Pines Camp and Retreat Center look as good as it does each year.
