 Registration for Winter Camp is Open! 

Calling all 3rd thru 8th Graders to Winter Camp this February 7 – 9!  We’ll stay in our cozy winterized facilities and keep toasty by the woodstoves while we enjoy camp’s traditional activities like crafts, singing, nature, Bible study, group games, morning watch, vespers, and delicious family-style meals.  But, we’ll also have all kinds of extra special winter fun including a mid-winter celebration (complete with a lost-and-found sock snowball fight!), snow-tubing at a nearby resort, hot chocolate, and a movie night with popcorn and snacks! Sign up by Jan. 31 at: www.brethrenwoods.org/wintercamp.

Registration cost ($120) is all-inclusive.

Cabin Fever Family Night 

February 29th   Cure your “Cabin Fever” this winter (and celebrate Leap Year!) with an evening at camp! Everyone (singles, couples, families, youth groups, campers, staff, volunteers, young and old) is invited for this FREE event with your camp “family!” We’ll gather from 4:30-7:30pm for a meal, games and puzzles, and an indoor campfire complete with singing, stories, and scripture. We’re providing a soup and bread supper perfect for a midwinter evening plus carry-in snacks and finger foods (please bring something to share!).

     To help with our planning and preparation, please RSVP to the camp office (540-269-2741 or camp@brethrenwoods.org) by Thursday, February 20th to let us know you’re coming and how many you’ll have.

Third Thursday of Each Month

Camp’s ministry happens all throughout the year, so we need volunteer help every month to keep up with our grounds, facilities, and programs.  You can join us every month on the third Thursday for our Helping Hands Workday.  There are always indoor and outdoor projects available for all kinds of skills, so there’s sure to be something that’s just right for you!  Just let us know what you’re interested in when you call ahead to sign-up.  This workday is perfect for retired folks, homeschool families, or others with flexible weekdays.  See you there!  Call to let them know you’re coming & the type of work you’d like to do.

The Year-Round Program Calendar is posted on the Brethren Woods bulletin board. More information and registration forms can be found on the Brethren Woods bulletin board here at church or on their webpage:
