Camp For All Ages

Labor Day Weekend

What: Do you ever wish you could experience CAMREC as a camper just like the kids do during summer? Now is your chance! Come out with your family or friends to enjoy a multigenerational gathering including optional outdoor games, campfire songs, nature hikes, water games, a variety show, star gazing, friendly cabin rivalry, faith discussions, and other opportunities such as:

  • ​Two activities led by Jesse and Miles, advocates for ancestral ways of caring for the land and each other. These will include:

    • Sensory Exploration Station - "we are consistently brought to reverence at the sight of miraculous expressions of Creation, but sight is not the only sense are gifted with. We also have our hearing, our touch, our smell, our tase... we will follow a thread blindfolded through the wilderness."

    • Crafting Goldenrod Tallow Butter - We will infuse locally sourced tallow and olive oil with Goldenrod, an herb harvested on-site and used historically to heal skin wounds and prevent infection.

  • Service Project: Painting the New Staff House - In its 4th season of volunteer-based construction, we hope to have the house livable by this winter. Help us make this possible, learn a bit about painting, and join the fun!
