camp wish list
We <3 our volunteers!
What a fall season! Camp Encounter hosted schools and local community members for a variety of retreats and other exciting events.
We started off our fall school retreat season with a HUGE 300 person school group! The day would not have been possible without an amazing team of volunteers (pictured to the left).
There was also a work weekend at camp encounter this fall! What does that mean you may ask? It means a day of helping out the camp staff with cleaning up camp! The crew of volunteers painted many a signs, fell dozens of dangerous trees, and protected even more against the industrious beavers in our area by wrapping the trees in protective wire. There was lots of work to be done and team work makes the dream work!
The next day our Mess Hall was the location for Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Fall Harvest supper. Over 100 people from the local community came out for an evening of delicious food and silent auction to raise money for the parish. A huge thanks to our small but mighty crew of volunteers who helped set-up, cook food, host the auction, and clean-up.
