The forecast is sunny, but who knows. There will be coffee. Whether you are camping or not, please attend service and bring a chair if you have one. Park in the “Rancho Parking” area.

Park in the “Rancho Parking Pasture” only! If you are unloading to camp, you are allowed to drive into the camp, but must keep your vehicle on the gravel road. Due to safety, they allow absolutely no vehicles to remain near the campsites, the lodge, or in RV spots. The owner charges $100 if this rule is not heeded. This applies to our Sunday Worship Service as well.

Payment: Use your regular method of giving to the church to help pay for this outing: place payment in the Offering Box at church (please mark on the envelope who and what it’s for), pay through our website, PayPal, or through your bank. The church will write one check to the camp when we leave. Your generosity is appreciated. This event costs us more than we get back in lodging fees.
 
Indoor Lodge Info: Since we are renting rooms in the lodge, we have access to a kitchen, a large conference room, and a large dining area. These areas can be used by any of our church folks for games, movies, meetings, light cooking, dining, etc. All indoor spaces and rooms are non-smoking. For those renting a room in the lodge, linens are provided. Restrooms and showers are located in the hallways. You will still need to bring all toiletries. Reserve your room asap! 11 bedrooms – one king bedroom, 1 full bedroom, and 9 rooms with 2 twins in each that can be converted into a king).

Outdoor Camping Info: All sites have electrical outlets, but be mindful of your usage, the breaker does tend to blow often if overused. You can put up a tent anywhere between the gravel road and the pond. Night time temperatures can get quite cool. Bring plenty of supplies to stay warm, even portable heaters are recommended.

Restrooms and Showers: The camp has very nice restroom and shower facilities located in the center of the grounds. Please bring your own toiletries and towels.

Dining: Bring Your Own Food. Everyone is responsible for their own food and drinks. A large coal grill is provided near the pavilion, but you must bring your own charcoal. A gas grill near is located near the Lodge. There is also a regular sized and furnished kitchen in the lodge for all of us to use as needed. There is no ice machine on property. FYI, don’t forget to bring water, sodas, Gatorades, or whatever your family likes to drink. Refrigeration: Two regular sized refrigerators with freezers are located in the lodge for us to use (these fill up pretty quickly, do not rely solely on keeping all your food and drink here). Otherwise, bring coolers and ice.
