Greetings and warmest wishes from Mountain Friends Camp!
2021 was a year like no other for all of us, this time last year we were uncertain and apprehensive about a return to in-person camp. I’m so glad we decided to take that chance, and proud of all of our campers and staff who made our 2021 session an amazing experience. We overcame challenges in making camp possible, with the ever-changing public health news and guidelines, and had a great time living and playing outdoors, connecting over shared meals, chores and songs, and the unique Quaker spirit of Mountain Friends Camp.
With the help of our friends and wider camp community, I’m confident Mountain Friends Camp will be back at Collins Lake Ranch in 2022 for a wonderful summer. Registration is planned to open in January.
Mountain Friends Camp 2022 Dates
Staff training : July 4-8
First Session: July 10-22 (13 nights)
Second Session: July 24-30 (6 nights)
Our hosts at Collins Lake Ranch send their greetings and are looking forward to MFC returning this summer. Steve replaced our tarp and bucket “Lake Loo” system with a real outhouse, and is working on a new yurt for 2022! They have also filled a new position at the ranch, a maintenance person to help keep everything in good repair.
Staff: Applications aren’t open yet, but now is a great time to consider coming to work at Mountain Friends Camp this summer or encouraging someone you know to join us! We’ll need a hardworking, caring and creative crew of counselors/program staff, cooks, lifeguards, leadership staff and a medic (or two!) to make the magic happen this summer. Could it be you?
