Apple Crisp

By |2011-10-30T10:12:21-04:00October 30th, 2011|

Hello all… The smell of warm apples and cinnamon wafting thru the air reminds me of Fall. This wonderful Apple Crisp will delight more than just your sense of smell. This isn’t your basic Apple Crisp with butter and flour as a crumb top. The mixture we will use here has oats in it and makes for a much heartier crisp topping. […]

Father Child Weekend!

Sunday afternoon wrapped up our first annual Father / Child Adventure weekend here at camp. What an awesome way to conclude (almost) our Fall season here at camp! We could not have enjoyed ourselves more as we had 50 families brave the cold to join us.

Roll Up Your Sleeves

By |2011-10-15T17:50:13-04:00October 15th, 2011|

As some of you might have noticed, today was our fall Roll Up Your Sleeves or RUYS. Unlike our traditional RUYS which has been a full weekend in the past. This weekend’s RUYS was a single day. We would like to thank all the families and Horizon Health Care for coming out today to help us clean, paint, plant, and repair. In total, we had around 40 people come and volunteer their time to help make camp a little cleaner and a little better. Interested in our programs? Please head to to find out more about or programs.
