The Mantario Cabin is looking for volunteers to help prepare the cabin for the summer program. Most work involved is cutting  and hauling wood type of chores but there is never any shortage of tasks . Meals are included and participants have some leisure time to swim and  use the sauna  with a great bunch of people. Trip involves canoeing to cabin on the Monday and coming back on Thursday by canoe. If you don/t have a canoe or a partner we may be able to make arrangements .Participants should be reasonably fit.

 

The Mantario committee is also looking for people that would be interested in helping at other times for work parties,  helping to advertise or other activities so questions are welcome to see if something could work for you.
