Camp Allatoona Support Team

Do you love being out at camp, or looking for service hours? Then the Camp Allatoona Support Team Work Weekends are the place for you! We are looking for volunteers to help us keep our camps in shape!

It is the mission of C.A.S.T. to engage volunteers in service to help provide the best facilities and programs available at our aquatics base. Our workdays are opportunities to work on projects such as shoreline and camp cleanup, repairing or upgrading structures, improving our fishing and swimming areas and much more.
