May 20 Work Day--Removing pipes from old HVAC system!

Camp Mennoscah Announcements

May 11, 2023

Preservation and then destruction!  The next Work and Play Day is May 20. Tasks will include staining part of the playground structure in the cooler morning and then it's time for (careful) destruction of the pipes of the old HVAC system in the Retreat Center. Eight or more people will make great progress possible.   Bring a water bottle and meet at the maintenance shed at 8:30am.  Camp will provide lunch.  If you let us know you are coming, we can be better prepared for lunch.  Contact Olivia at 620-297-3290 (landline) or olivia.bartel@campmennoscah.org for details.

Other events and happenings:

  • Camp Mennoscah is looking for people to provide a "main course" for approx. 12 people during the week of May 29-June 2.  Camp will provide the extras for the meal and staff do the meal prep as a team building exercise.  If you would like to provide the full meal, wonderful!  During this week, summer staff do training for Youth Development, the Staff Handbook, Reducing the Risk of Abuse, and more.  This week prepares the staff to create great camp experiences for a summer of campers.   Contact Olivia at 620-297-3290 or olivia.bartel@campmennoscah.org for details.
