We'd love to have you come to
Horton Center to help out!

We are in need of all kinds of work and skill levels.  If you have a particular skill, such as carpentry, or are licensed as a plumber or electrician, please let us know! Call us at 603-545-9660.  

Important information on attending our weekends is below, including the forms you will need.  Please read this information carefully!


Opening Work Days 
May 14 – 16, 2021
Fall Work Days
October 8-10, 2021

NOTE: Due to the uncertainty of events during the pandemic, dates may change or events be cancelled.  Please check with us to confirm.

Registration is required: You can come for the whole weekend or just Saturday, please let us know when you’re coming and how long you plan to stay. To be prepared for the work projects and food, all participants must be registered. These will not be drop in events.  Email Tim Hughes, to register! (The weekends are no fee – donations appreciated)

Background checks: are required for all participants 18 years old and older. Horton Center will absorb the cost of the background check, but will gladly take a donation to help with this cost.  Download the background check form here, then send it to 140 Sheep Davis Rd. Pembroke NH 03275.  Only one background check is needed for the entire summer, so if you sign up for more than one event, you only need to do this once. Participants will also submit a Voluntary Disclosure Statement, and the appropriate Health Forms (see below for links).

Age restriction: We know that it would be great to travel with the whole family, but these will be serious work events and in order to keep everyone safe, youth must be 16 or older and accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Health Care: There is no nurse on duty during work weekends.  Adults are responsible for their own health care and for the care of the minors they bring with them. In the event of an emergency participants will be brought by ambulance or arranged ride to the Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin, NH. Please be advised it is over a half an hour from Horton Center to the hospital.

Medications: During work events at Horton Center, adults may keep medications (prescription or non prescription) but they must be locked up at all times. Adults should also keep medications (locked up at all times) of any minors they have brought with them. We ask that you be discreet and keep medications out of sight.

No alcohol, or illegal drugs: We know it seems obvious, but we want to be clear that these are alcohol and drug free events, as are all events at Horton Center. Don’t even have these in your vehicle.

Supervision: Individuals under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must be supervised at all times. Adults may share in supervision responsibilities, but at least one adult must be present.

No adult is to be alone with a minorwith the exception of parents with their children. If you are with somebody else’s child, be sure there are at least three people present. This is for everyone’s safety.

Health Forms: are required for everyone. Individuals 16-17 years must have parents and doctor’s signatures. Adults will fill out an adult health form (no doctor’s signature required). Adult forms can be downloaded, or you can fill one out when you arrive at camp.

Donation: The weekend is free and we appreciate everyone’s help, but in order to pay for food, we are asking you to consider making a donation during your stay for Horton Center Work Days. We suggest $25 for weekends. Please, do what you can.
