Florida College hosted a total of 55 participants on campus at Labor Camp on June 4-9, 2017. The volunteers at the 13th annual camp donated nearly 1,500 hours of labor, saving the college more than $45,000. To date, Labor Camp has now saved Florida College approximately $475,000.

Labor Camp operates on Florida College’s campus each summer under the supervision of the director of alumni relations, Adam Olson. This year’s camp was directed by Craig Bean, the original Labor Camp director, Florida College alumnus and president of The Hutchinson Bell.

This year’s Labor Camp participants completed a variety of projects to improve campus:

  • Painted the interior of Henderson Dining Hall and half the third-floor suites in Boswell Hall
  • Completed landscaping by the Student Center and Legacy Courtyard
  • Constructed new classroom podiums
  • Rewired lighting in Puckett Auditorium
  • Relocated lockers and cleared brush at Florida College Academy
  • Relocated education materials and painted shelving in Chatlos Library
  • Cleaned classrooms

Thank you to all the dedicated volunteers who participated in this year’s Labor Camp!
