Camp Capers' 75th Anniversary Celebration
Camp Capers is celebrating 75 years of transformative experiences and bringing joy to campers of all ages. Make plans to head back to camp October 7 - 9, 2022 and join the Rt. Rev. David Reed, the Camps & Conferences staff, 75th Anniversary Committee and your fellow campers to reminisce, tell stories and enjoy a magical weekend together in the hill country.
Camp Capers is excited to welcome back camper and staff alumni, retreat participants, parents, and camp supporters for a once in a lifetime celebration. The 75th Celebration weekend will include celebratory festivities, storytelling, and campus tours, as well as traditional camp activities including kayaking, Arts & Crafts, Saturday morning Teaching, Compline service, Sunday Chapel, and plenty of free time with camp friends - new and old.
Marnie Brown, Committee Co-Chair, shares "The Camp Capers 75th Anniversary Celebration will be a time for former campers, staff, and anyone who has shared or wants to share in the magic of this blessings-filled place to reconnect, rejuvenate, and build a Christ-centered community together. For me, Camp Capers has always been a place for fun, camaraderie, and connecting with God...a place to be whimsical, sentimental, musical, and non-sensical. I am counting the days until I can pass through the camp gates again to reconnect with old friends and to meet new ones. I hope to see you there!"
