Men’s River weekend – THIS weekend!

The Men’s River weekend is THIS weekend – Friday, Aug. 12-Sunday, Aug. 14. We hope to see you for all or part of the weekend! Please RSVP to this email address or the number below. $40/person for the entire weekend.

Arrive anytime 5 p.m. or after Friday. We will fire up the grill as people roll in, get settled and you’ll spend some time around the campfire.

Saturday morning, breakfast is at 8 a.m.
Following breakfast, we’ll load up and you will canoe from the Eagle City site down to Steamboat Rock. You will eat sack lunches on the river.

Saturday concludes with campfire and dutch oven cooking and some of Tim’s fireside tunes.

Those who choose to stay through Sunday can join Ivester for church at 10:30 following breakfast at camp.

Again, come for the entire weekend, just to canoe or just for a campfire. Let us know if you have questions – see you!
