Eastern Ottawa Young Life and DeHamer Landscaping are committed to helping each student cover their cost of camp. We will be doing a Mulch Day to give kids an opportunity to raise money towards camp.

Students and leaders will come spread the mulch on the day of our event for a minimum donation of $35 per cubic yard. In preperation for students to spread the mulch, you will need to order and pay for your own mulch. We encourage you to order and pay for your mulch from DeHamer Landscaping because they will donate your payment back to Young Life. If for some reason you want to get mulch from a different source, please just have it ready by the morning of the event.

As we get closer to the event we will give you a 4-hour window of time that we will be at your house. On the day of the event, we will call you 20-30 minutes before we arrive. On the work day, students and leaders will show up and spread the mulch. They will bring all the necessary tools for the job.
