Overnight Letter

Family Overnights are Wednesdays: June 28; July 12, 26; and August 9, 2017. Children stay that whole day at camp and parents arrive when convenient. Supper is 6-ish at the large campsite behind the cabins. Ideally, we all sleep under the beautiful stars at the campsite. Tents are welcome and cabins are available in inclement weather.

All are most welcome for the whole evening and the next morning, or just for the evening family adventures: swimming (lighted pool), family games, Concert, Adventure Challenge Course*, crafts, night walks, campfire, and singing. In the early morning there are blueberry pancakes, eggs, potatoes and orange juice. Camp coffee and cocoa are ready by 7:00 am with breakfast soon following – outside, hopefully using the evening’s campfire coals to light the breakfast fires.

For our delicious feast on the Family Overnight, and for the following day’s Family Luncheon, each child will be asked to bring a vegetarian potluck dish or an item of food, which the children and staff will use to cook supper, breakfast, and lunch on both days. Notes are sent home three days before the Family Overnight, giving parents and children dessert, salad, or to purchase the requested item for breakfast or the next day’s lunch.


*The Adventure Challenge Courses are inspected annually and meet the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) Standards.
