Free Camping Weekend

We all need occaisional sprucing up!
We all need occasional sprucing up!

It’s Spring and that means clean-up here on the campground. In a nod to Mark Twain…what a deal we have for you! 🙂

May 8-10,2009 Camp for free with us in exchange for help on Saturday with chores. We’ll feed you, laugh with you, show you around and relax by the fire when it’s all done. Broadly the schedule works like this:

Friday Afternoon come when you can, there will be a fire and refreshments in the rec hall when you get here. Sites are first come, first choose and everyone is welcome.

Come and see our thousands of bulbs!

Saturday morning we’ll fry homemade doughnuts and share coffee and cocoa (with homemade marshmallows) by the fire while we get organized. The list of chores to be accomplished will include (but not limited to) the following:

  • Raking
  • Picking up brush
  • Painting (creative and otherwise)
  • Cleaning the rec hall (dusting, arranging and windows)
  • Cleaning windows in the store and bathhouse
  • Building various things
  • Setting up the playground equipment
  • Fixing up the walking trails
  • Gardening
  • Repairing a deck
  • Setting up and cleaning up after meals
  • Special projects thought of by guests

Saturday we’ll do a lunch cookout at the beach beside the beach bonfire and at night we’ll share a pot luck supper…we’ll cook turkey or ribs and you bring the side dishes.

Sunday relax as late into the day as you can…

Tired of Winter?

And if you want to come Thursday or stay into the following week…we can figure that out too.

Because hosting is most fun when we’re an intimate group, we limit attendance to 30-40 people…so I need you tell me if you’re coming and how many friends and family you’ll be bringing with you. This is a very nice opportunity to catch up with old friends, check the park out if you haven’t stayed here before and enjoy a no cost weekend away from home while you shake the winter cobwebs from your camping gear.

We’ll be here rain or shine and hope that you will be too!

Astrig, Steven & Zaven
