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!

On Friday evening, June 30, meet at the beautifully remodeled Bolling-Wilson Hotel in Wytheville for an opening night dinner party, or go straight to Camp to settle in for a quiet night of campfire songs and stories while the rest are at the Wytheville party.

The main event--the Grand Opening of the Dining Hall and Shower House--happens all day Saturday, July 1. Enjoy an adventure filled line-up of activities, including brunch and dinner–think: best Camp day ever! We’ll feature the dedication of our two beautiful new buildings, include kids activities, music, and dancing as well. Our weekend will wrap up on Sunday morning with breakfast – unless of course you decide to stay for our first Family Camp Session and keep the magic going!

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.
