Join us for a weekend of A.R.E. Camp fun as we celebrate the Grand Opening of our NEW Camp Dining Hall and Shower House!
Arrive at Camp during the afternoon on Friday (June 30) to settle in for a night of campfire songs and stories with all of your favorite A.R.E. Camp staff people, or choose to begin the weekend in style with Pat Belisle and friends at an optional cocktail reception (and dinner/hors d’oeuvres) at the Bolling Wilson Hotel in Wytheville (details below). We will have an adventure filled line-up of activities on Saturday, including brunch and dinner – think: best camp day ever! We’ll cap it all off with the dedication of our two beautiful new buildings! Our weekend will wrap up on Sunday morning with breakfast, unless of course you decide to keep the Camp magic going and stay at Camp for our first Family Camp Session!
You may reserve a spot in a cabin or bring your own tent. We have also reserved a block of 20 rooms for A.R.E. Camp at the Bolling Wilson Hotel for June 30 – July 1 if you’re feeling like living the “pillow top” life and just traveling to Camp during the day for the festivities. You’ll want to call, or visit the hotel’s website for reservations. If you choose to stay at the hotel, you still have to register/pay for the Grand Opening Weekend event.
