Whether you gather friends, mushrooms, creativity or just plain good times, this will be an excellent chance to gather and share!
This will be our SIXTH incarnation of Thanksgiving Camp but our second time at Camp Sylvester.
The facility was built in 1927 and is an historic camp owned by the Stanislau County Farm Bureau. Nestled between Pinecrest Lake and Dodge Ridge ski resort, Camp Sylvester is an ideal setting for our Thanks Camp. The camp has updated cabins with heat, electricity and a few even have in-cabin showers/bathrooms. Each cabin sleeps between 8 and 13 people. The recreation halls sprawl over nearly ten acres of the Stanislaus National Forest. It has an excellent kitchen to create our exquisite meals and and seating for 200 in a new dining hall. Camp Sylvester provides the fresh air, green pines and excitement of an outdoor adventure with all of the comforts of a rustic resort.
ACTIVITIES: Karaoke night, dance party, puzzle/game night, a gift exchange, holiday caroling and various art activities, mushroom forays/hikes (led by volunteers) will be available, as well as an evening story time for adults and children. Beading/jewelry-making for kids and adults will be happening, too. Want to share a special talent? Tell a Dean and organize your own workshop. We will have a pre-Thanksgiving dinner worship service in the dining hall. Want to lead a morning worship service? Volunteer (and tell a Dean!). Campers often bring musical instruments. Drumming anyone? More information and specifics will be forthcoming as we get closer to the date.
Thursday is an arrival day and the first official meal is Thursday Dinner. To accommodate folks who have other obligations on Thanksgiving Day, we have our Feast on Friday.
Registration fees are per person and the fees are the same regardless of how many days you attend. The flat rate system means everyone pays the same and works the same. A $50 cleaning deposit is required for every camper, and will be returned at the end of camp after cleaning up.
