Dad and Kids Campout
Load up your kids and your camping gear, and join us for an unforgettable weekend in the woods. This event is open to dads/granddads/uncles/father figures and their kids of all ages!
The Dad & Kids Campout will be held at CAMP WILLIAM B. SNYDER, June 7-9, 2019. Join us for a weekend of bonfires, sleeping under the stars, and just plain fun! The adventures are great and small with all the group games, campfire-songs, hot dog and marshmallow roast, and Sunday morning worship. It’s a special opportunity to disconnect from daily distractions, create lifelong memories with your kids, and get to know other dads at RBC. Dads and kids of all ages are welcome!
Registration for the campout is now closed.
Arrival time at CAMP WILLIAM B. SNYDER is up to you, campsites are available after 1:00 pm on Friday for setup but it’s much easier to set up a tent in daylight! We’d encourage you to arrive at the group camping area by 7:00 pm on Friday. We will not meet at the church first — so you need to provide your own transportation.
Other than the cookout on Saturday night, you are on your own for meals. A brown bag meal for Friday dinner is a great idea while setting up camp. You may also want to consider “teaming” with other campers to share the meal responsibilities (for example — one family cooks Saturday breakfast). Each site is provided a picnic table and a fire ring with grill.
The full schedule, full what to bring list, and additional details will be sent to registered campers at least one week out. Here are a few of the key items to bring: tent, camp chairs, sleeping bags, flashlights or lantern, ice chest, food, grilling supplies, cookware and camp stove, paper and plastic ware.
