This annual event provides a chance for you to interact with camp staff, enjoy a delicious meal and evening entertainment, hear a report on camp’s ministry and get an update on the Building Bridges Capital Campaign, congratulate the volunteer of the year, and celebrate staff milestones. This year we will be remembering Buildings and Grounds Manager, Lloyd Moyer, who passed away in May, recognizing Office Manager, Joann Ebling, who retired this summer, and celebrating Lloyd and Joann’s decades of service to camp.  We are also excited to welcome professional handbell ringer, Ron Bellamy accompanied by Linda Young Lorgus, as this year’s entertainment!

Jason's Last Day

After serving 14 years on staff--4 as Program Coordinator--Jason Haldeman will have his final day at Camp on Friday, September 30 before FLOATING down the river and entering into ministry at Elizabethtown COB. We'd like to ask him to do a few more things on his last day to help us CHOMP away at our Capital Campaign... For every 5 donations we receive from now until #JasonsLastDay, Jason will take on another crazy task on his last day--from inspecting the underside of the new bridge while dressed as a lobster to chewing off some of the old siding on the West Retreat in his beaver outfit, there's plenty to do; we may even ask him to eat his veggies--and we'll post video of all of it! Show your love for Camp--and appreciation for Jason and the crazy things he'll do--by donating and spreading the word! Donate and see what activities your donations have unlocked.

UPDATE!  Watch the videos from Jason's Last Day!
