Work at camp

I don't know about you guys but there's always work at camp.Maintenance, upgrades and habitat improvements are non stop.Some I talk to are getting sick of it and others feel it's worth it.Your thoughts?

Re: Work at camp

You can only get what you put into it. I brought up 2 cords split of all hardwood, dropped it off trout weekend, (big scheduled event for cabin). Only the same guys help, than others use it for camp fires etc.. Througout the summer, come September, it's a cord and half maybe less. Same guys just say we might need some more wood! Yet there's 2 ton of coal 25 feet from cabin door. Oh that costs money, we don't wanna use that. Yet if you fill the buckets up and bring them in for em they'll keep the place 100 degrees. Cause they add too much and open it wide so to keep it going.

Re: Work at camp

bruin, ya thats something u almost always run into. i was in simialar boat. when theres complaining theres always a few guys to do it, when theres actual work/chores they are nowhere to be found. to answer original question, i just cant stay still at camp. gonna relax, but never end up doing so. sometimes while home i cant even stop thinkin bout stuff i need to do up there. u know wat tho, chores up there are no way nicer than chores down home.

Re: Work at camp

for me work at camp is not like work at home. my camp is not fancy so i don't stress it if it needs some paint, etc. thats why i don't fix it up too nice. it's rough and easy to maintain. if it becomes a misery to maintain that takes all the fun out of it.

Re: Work at camp

When "work" at camp becomes a PAIN, time to give it up.

Re: Work at camp

Thats not an easy question when it comes to the camp I belong to.
I belong to a camp that has 20 members and we have a work detail meeting in March..We have to discuss what needs to be done, any major projects.
We usually have work details at camp, 2 a year and you have to make atleast one detail or your pay an assement which the amount is set at the work detail meeting in March..
Due to the price of gas this year we did'nt have any. Nothing major needed done.
And then there is always an issue about what we need to do at camp..We have members that seem to forget that it is a camp and want to do things that are not needed at camp such as put in a washer and dryer a dishwasher ?? Some people need to leave the city living in the city..
Any thing that is done at camp also needs to be discussed and voted on such as building a building or replacing anything such as one of the woodburners, You just can't replace or build anything because you want to.
And then there is the money issue. Do we have the money to do a project at camp? Do we need to have an assement ?? If you go to camp and spend your own money fixing something or replacing something we have to vote on whether camp will reimburse you your money, we always do unless it is something stupid..
The meetings can get a little heated at times..
