    Default Cardigan Lodge Weekend Work Party

    The next work party weekend at Cardigan Lodge, organized by the AMC, is now only a month away.

    There are three volunteer work weekends each year at Cardigan Lodge working with experienced leaders and taking on projects from basic brushing, advanced rock work, and wood structure. You donít need to be an expert to join and can bring the whole family. All abilities and efforts are appreciated. Note: Children under the age of 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

    The volunteer trail crew works from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday. You can arrive at Cardigan Lodge anytime after 2 p.m. on Friday. On Saturday morning, the crew convenes and is organized into groups with experienced leaders. After a tool safety talk, the groups set out to projects on the trails of Mt. Cardigan with their tools (provided by the leaders) for the day. Each day there are several projects to choose from, ranging from simple (clearing brush, cleaning and repairing drainage, and painting blazes) to complex (bridge or rock step construction). Each volunteer has the ability to select the type of project that interests them most.

    Water and snack breaks are encouraged and taken throughout the day. Lunch is on the trail. At the end of the day Saturday, crews return to Cardigan Lodge to wrap up their day with showers and dinner. Sundayís work ends at noon for the buffet lunch at 1:00pm to allow time to travel back home or further enjoy activities around Cardigan.

    You can expect to find the crew a friendly and fun group of people. Even though we work hard on the trail, back at the lodge there is time to relax, swim or play in the evenings, early morning, and Sunday afternoon. Crews stay in bunkrooms at the newly renovated Cardigan Lodge. A light buffet dinner is provided on Friday evening for visitors as they arrive. A family-style dinner is provided Saturday night. Breakfast is provided both Saturday and Sunday, plus a trail lunch on Saturday and buffet lunch on Sunday.
