We can’t do it without you!

We are immensely grateful for all the volunteers that attend this important weekend! Your selfless efforts yield immediate results and leave everyone feeling proud of what has been accomplished. The combined service hours save us thousands of dollars in labor costs, and most importantly help us keep our program tuition prices down!

The weekend is not all work. Participants enjoy making new acquaintances, reconnecting with friends, utilizing the facilities at the end of the day, playing games, taking hikes, attending church/Sunday school and enjoying the incredible surroundings.

What’s your specialty?

There are a wide variety of projects that need attention, so if you have skills in a particular area that you’d like to offer, we’ll be happy to pair you with an appropriate project. These are just some of the standard projects we will be doing:

  • fencing
  • log pole stripping
  • painting
  • raking
  • gardening
  • cleaning
  • window washing
  • organizing
  • carpentry
  • kid specific projects
  • And more…

How you can help

There are a number of ways you can participate in the Service Weekend:

  • Physically come to the A/U Ranches to lend a hand to our cleanup efforts. You’ll play a big part in sprucing things up while enjoying some fantastic play time as well!
  • Send money to support a specific project or for general maintenance – flowers, paint, etc.
  • Donate a needed item on the A/U Ranches Wish List.
