Work Week: Join us for a northwoods break from your usual routine!

Work Week: May 28 – June 5
  • Contact Dick Shank in advance to arrange to participate in Work Week.
  • Register your interest at http://portal.holry.org/event-2114855
  • Be a member in good standing of the SAA. Join online at http://www.holry.org/membership.php (if you need help, contact saa@holry.org)
  • Early sign-up is strongly encouraged to assist Northern Tier and your fellow alumni with planning.
May 28 through June 5th, this is your chance for some sweat equity and camaraderie with your fellow alumni members and current staff, and also benefit Northern Tier programs and facilities. We can use help for a day or a week, so come as early and stay as late as you can! Meals and accommodations on the base will be provided at no cost. The work will involve a variety of projects on the Base, including some work on the Welcome Cabin and bunkhouses.

You will have the added opportunity to participate in training week activities and Seminar Day on June 4. Seminar Day is sponsored and staffed by fellow alumni to provide additional education for trail staff in outdoor and guiding skills. If you have an area of expertise you are willing to share, please contact us. A volunteer alumni dinner is planned for June 3.

You also have the option of heading out on the trail after a few days work (advance arrangements with Northern Tier are required if using base equipment or leaving from the NT landing).

Register your interest at http://portal.holry.org/event-2114855

We hope to hear from you! For more information and to arrange to participate contact Dick Shank at richard.shank@comcast.net, 651.698.5375 (home) or 612.859.7268 (cell).
