Thank you to all of our amazing supporters! As of today, we have confirmed reservations for 11 groups to use the camp between now and November, representing over 800 campers. A year ago, we assured you that our camp was beloved far and wide. Now, we are on track to exceed the usage numbers reported by GSHPA and our weekends are filling up fast.
We will be hosting an open house this Saturday, May 11th from 1 – 4PM. Grab a friend and come out to enjoy a relaxing day at camp with us. We would also love to see our amazing volunteers at camp in the morning to help us get ready for the open house.
We are also happy to announce two additional events coming up in June:
First, local bee keeper, Dee Bagshaw, Co-President of the Centre County Beekeepers Association, will be coming to Camp Golden Pond on June 9th to teach us about the amazing honey bee. This will be a fun and educational event perfect for any age seeking to learn more about what pollinators do for us and how we can help them.
Second, Rebecca Reck of Bluebird Designs by Bex will be coming to Camp Golden Pond on June 15th to lead a paint party. Thank you to Julie Clippinger for setting this event up!
We also would like to thank everyone who has contributed to our lawn mower fund. A commercial grade lawn mower may be expensive, but it is vital to keeping our camp maintained. So far we have raised almost $5,500 for this capital purchase. Every single dollar helps keep us on track to being able to own our camp. If you have not yet contributed to this critical need, you can do so easily and securely via the PayPal Giving Fund.
We hope to see you at camp soon!
