Become Involved. Live history. A host keeping family builds a picnic table at Porphyry last season.

As a participant in the program you will get to learn some of the basic skills in the trades by helping to build amenities for Porphyry Island. You will also gain ten hours of volunteer work to help go towards your high school graduation requirements. During your stay on the island you will participate in many programming activities such as canoeing, campfires, and evening games. You will have the chance to learn about the history of the island, gain camping experience, build onto your leadership skills, make new friends and learn how to tell an interpretive story to the visitors. 

Upon completion of our program each participant will get to Tie-dye their own program T-shirt!
