New Campers are encouraged to attend a “warm-up” session on Sunday, September 2 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

In years past, a small group of Campers has arrived a day early to spend that evening together. It’s informal and unplanned, but it gives you an extra day to get oriented and renew friendships, or make new ones.
