The Citizens of Shawtown is Camp Workcoeman’s volunteer support group. Over the last 30 years, the group has provided tremendous contributions of skill, materials, and labor for new camp projects as well as maintaining the existing camp facility. Having a camp support group like the Citizens of Shawtown is an invaluable asset to the existence of a successful camp facility. The Citizens of Shawtown sponsor workdays each year and also sponsor the annual Beaver Day on the first Saturday in June, where many volunteers come together to help complete numerous projects to improve the camp. Additionally, the group helps in funding various projects by holding an annual fund raising steak dinner each May.
