What will we do all week, and where will we be?

Find where you're sleeping, where you're sewing, and where you're socializing!

Sunday

This is our 'Travel and Get There' Day.   Get into camp between 3pm and 5pm.  Stop at the Office building (first building on the right as soon as you cross the bridge).  There you will get your name tag and your Show and Tell time and your free goodies!  If appropriate, sign in and get your room keys, building and room assignments, and unpack.  Even tset up your sewing things on your table and start sewing!  Settle in and say hi to all your buddies from the past or make new friends with the neighbors for the week!  What do you pack?  Comfortable clothes and shoes - layers for the weather forecast and meant for a bit of walking so you can get some refreshing country air!  Sewing supplies for your to-do list.  Anything you may want to be comfortable for the week.  Snacks, including alcoholic beverages, are permitted on the grounds, but cooking is NOT permitted. 

Returning this year is the Quilters' Garage Sale.  Tables will be provided in the new Assembly Hall, for free and discount priced items, so we hope you remembered to include those items when you packed for camp!  Envelopes will be available for payments to sellers.  To sell, simply put your name on the envelope and the price, and place with the item.  When purchased, buyer can turn in the envelope to Linda or Mary and we will hand them out at assemblies in the evening.

Dinner at the Dining Hall at 5pm

Assembly in the Assembly Hall at 7pm

Join us for an evening get-together.  A little Show and Tell, and a lot of seeing who made the trip.  Introductions and special prizes will make this a time to remember.
