  6. Carrie Overgaard says:

    Next summer we are looking at bringing a group of youth (8th-12th grade) and adults from Grace Lutheran Church in Minnesota out to Estes Park and we are looking to do some volunteer work for 1-2 days.

    We are excited to help out wherever we can! The kids shared some ideas of areas they would be interested in; some mentioned were: working with children, serving meals, parks, grounds work, community clean up, and working at a food pantry.

    • Alison Rivers says:
