Come help with opening Far Horizons Camp for a great summer. Retired, young and older, single or married, any and all are invited to help with getting Far Horizons ready for this season. Various work projects are needed to be done to get Camp ready. These include readying cabins for occupation, arranging the kitchen, cleaning needles and pinecones from around buildings, and possibly doing some painting as well as finishing the reconstruction of the deck on Sugar Pine Cabin.

Work during the day, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, (6 hours). Afternoons and evenings for resting, socializing, games, and campfires are available in Camp. (Lodging and three meals a day are offered for your stay at Far Horizons.)

We will also be able to accommodate a flex schedule depending on workload and camp
programs…ask Staff for details.

“Ukulele Ohana (Family) Camp” by Ruth Laemmlen

August 24-27, 2023

How would you like to play your stringed instrument in the forest, under stars, or playing the “old camp songs” around a crackling fire? That and much more await you at Far Horizons Camp in the Sierra Mountains, where it is 20 degrees cooler than the Central Valley.

Far Horizons Camp is where the magic begins, and you can share your favorite music with other folks that love music and playing the ukulele (any size), guitars (without amplification), even violins, banjos and all kinds of rhythm instruments. These are all welcome.

You only need to register for this program, for three nights (even three or two nights are available). Then email Ruth at: your 2 sheets of your favorite music with the Cords marked above the words to be copied for all those that attend with you. Oh yes, you will need your own music stand. Then come prepared to really enjoy Far Horizons with a group of music lovers like yourself!!
