Fall Clean Up and Dinner:  Members BBQ and Gathering

Another season has come and gone here at camp. We are sad to see this one end but given our medium line up for next year we are super excited for next year's season.
We need to tuck the camp in for the winter and we are asking for your help. If you are able, with enough willing hands the work goes quickly and any extra help is greatly appreciated.  What better way to welcome the coming season and close camp than with a harvest meal? Turkey, rolls, mashed potatoes and the fixings; certainly not to be missed. We want to celebrate with you so please come spend the day with us.

Meal will likely be around 1:00 pm. Please feel free to bring something to share. Please let us know if you can make it so we will have enough food but even if you are a last minute volunteer we want you!

Spring Opening Meeting -

Camp Etna is preparing to open for the season. Still there is lots to do to be ready and beautiful for our camp season and we will be having an open for the season meeting. This is not a members meeting. It is an informal meeting to get together and create a game plan for Camp and throw around wonderful ideas for our season and seasons ahead.

Camp Work Weekends         
These weekends are focused on getting camp ready for the summer season. Friends and members of camp (and anyone else interested in helping) are encouraged to attend.
