Plan Ahead & Prepare – Get the most out of Family Fun Day
- Plan to arrive mid-morning to mid-afternoon (10am to about 2pm) to ensure you have enough time to check-in, do the activities you want, and have time to wander Base Camp to your heart’s content. You may not check in until 9:30, and activities won’t start until 10.
- Pack water bottles, sunscreen, comfortable socks and closed-toed athletic shoes for Zip Line & Hiking, and the Climbing Wall. Thinking of venturing into the pond for a turn in a canoe or a paddleboard? Pack water shoes and clothes that can get wet–our Bath House is a great place to change and dry off before and after!
- For those of you who may be thinking of bringing your entire scout pack, a full softball team, or any other large group: You’re more than welcome, but please remember that anyone under 18 must be accompanied by their legal guardian in order to participate in activities. We also recommend that you split up and enjoy the day in groups of less than 8 — this will help us keep a good flow at each activity.
Our traditional Memorial Day service will start promptly at 10 am; bring your umbrella — it could rain or be 90 degrees!
Guest speaker this year is Veteran Berlin Huffman of John’s Creek. He served as a pilot in WWII and Vietnam and has as wealth of wisdom to share with us.
Music will be provided by New Castle Methodist Church and U.S. flags given out by Craig Valley DAR.
Car Show entry fee $15, open to all vehicles and motorcycles.
