Special Events 2017

2017 Activities

We have an awesome summer of crafts and activities lined up!!

From the Social Committee: Bingo’s will be back this year on Saturday afternoons (depending on number of volunteers) and new this year will be outdoor movies starting in late August.  In addition, Slip & Slide was so popular that this year it will be set up fairly often on all those hot and sticky days.

From the Campground staff: Friday nights are Movie & Popcorn, starting on May 12th.  Saturday afternoons are crafts and activities and on long weekends there is always something extra planned.

Each Friday and Saturday night there is a Wagon Ride beginning at the Rec Hall starting at 6:30pm.  On Long weekends there is also a wagon ride on Sunday evening, too.  As always this is weather dependent.

The third Saturday night of every month is Texas Hold’em up at the Rec  Hall, or outside at the BBQ Pit on those really hot and muggy evenings.

Throughout the week board and card games are available at the Rec Hall. For rainy days or for bored kids. In addition to the games there is an awesome craft centre filled with all the supplies you need to be creative and let your imagination roam.

There is also a lending library, VCR’s and DVD’s you can sign out and borrow, a reading area, lounge area and wifi. And our little ones are not forgotten…there are lots of indoor toys, books, crayons and colouring books, tons of playdough and a small table and chairs for them.
