RHS students from the religious organization Young Life visited a forest camp called Woodleaf this weekend to serve as a work crew.

The students helped serve the campers and give to the community, as well as connect with each other.

Junior Reilley Hayes was among the student volunteers who participated.

“Even though we were not actually campers, we were just serving and volunteering, the relationships I had with people in the club grew tremendously and I made a lot of friends through the experience,” Hayes said.

To Ethan Miller, another student volunteer, the uniqueness of his time at the camp made attending more than worth it.

“It’s a really fun and one of a kind experience, and everyone should get to do stuff like that,” Miller said.

Young Life plans to return to Woodleaf as campers over the summer.
