Camp Sherwin is located in Lake City, PA on the shores of Lake Erie, between Walnut Creek and Elk Creek Access areas. It is a public campground with tent, RV, Seasonal Sites, and Cabins. Facilities are also available for weddings and group events. YMCA Summer Camp Day Programs also are operated from this site. Camp Sherwin also holds wellness programs, community events and weekend family activities for all ages and interest groups.

Host Couples will set an example by being model campers observing all rules and regulations. Our volunteer hosts must be a team such as a husband and wife. Must be over 21 years old. The schedule will be flexible enough for hosts to still enjoy the many resources of Erie County.

Camp Sherwin Campground hosts perform a variety of tasks, such as greeting customers, coordinating weekend activities/events, and cleaning up cabins/campsites. They will also perform light maintenance work around the campground such as sweeping and stocking supplies at the shower houses, pond maintenance, court maintenance, yard work, help setting up the halls for rentals, helping with small construction projects, making emergency minor repairs when possible, informing the Camp Director about potential problems, and various other duties. Hosts need to become familiar with local points of interest and the location where local services can be obtained, e.g. fuel, lp, laundromat, groceries.

On duty hours include weekend hours and holiday hours and will be mutually agreed between the manager and host. The manager will approve specific duty hours and assignments for an average of 30 hours per week. Hosts provide their own RV/tent and are provided a free campsite with utility hookups and access to WIFI.
