Spring Festival 2022

Brethren Woods is excited to announce an in-person Spring Festival will be held at camp on Saturday, April 30th!  This is a day filled with fun, fellowship, and lots of ways to support camp’s ministry!  Don’t miss all the Spring Festival classics including the trout fishing contest, yard sale, pancake breakfast, Hike-a-Thon, hay rides, petting zoo, zip line rides, pedal boat rides, Dunk the Dunkard booth, activities for all ages (like games, crafts, treats, emergency vehicles, mini golf, and more!), Kiss the Cow, the auction, and (of course!) lots of delicious food!  Plus, enjoy new activities like the climbing tower and an inflatable bounce house and obstacle course.  The Outdoor Ministry Team will be recognizing and celebrating Doug Phillips’ retirement as Camp Director at the conclusion of the auction (approx. 2pm).
