Thank you for supporting our many events this past year. You have helped us receive more than 1600 summer campers, train and mentor 70 plus staff, and host over 250 schools, church and para-church groups. This last year has seen several major successes such as establishing a capital fund and ending the year with a positive balance sheet. It is because of you that campers can continue to come to Camp Arnes.
All funds raised through our events help us keep our fees at a reasonable rate for all to afford, providing an encouraging setting to develop in Friendship & Faith, and in Leadership & Life. We look forward to continued growth in 2017, and seeing you at our next event.
Work and Play Day
When: Saturday, May 13, 2017
Time: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Location: Camp Arnes
Bring your whole family to help us out, and try some Camp activities while you’re here. Arrive at 9:00am, and lunch will be provided.
This is a great chance to get to know Camp before sending your camper for a whole week in the summer, or coming out for a retreat group! You can see some of the behind-the-scenes work that goes on, as well as participate in the fun activities we offer.
Work and Play Day is about helping us get camp ready for the summer and having some fun at the same time. There are loads of projects for all skills and interests, just show up with your muscles and work gloves. You’ll also want to bring your swimsuit because we get to relax in the pool at the end of a hard days work! Everyone is welcome. RSVP by calling 1-888-642-7618.
