Fear not, more camp weekends are coming! Print E-mail




Snow may be falling, but we’re already planning for warmer weather – and camp!  Mark your calendars now and plan to join us for some fun this spring:




BRASS Weekend (March 11-13) – Siblings ages 7-16 are invited to join us at the Northern Virginia 4-H Center for three days of fun – just for BRothers And SiSters!  Get a sneak peek at this year’s BRASS Camp theme, play games, make crafts, sing songs, and make friends!


Tidewater Family Weekend (March 18-20) is a chance for our Richmond/Norfolk area families to join us at camp, with games, classes, and an evening adventure.  We’ll be at the Airfield 4-H Center, where you can relax, rejuvenate, and canoe around the giant lake (check out this amazing aerial video that one of our camp dads filmed last year!)


Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus - on March 30th, join us for the Greatest Show on Earth and enjoy the elephant act for the last time!  Your kids or all ages will love Circus Xtreme - and you’ll have a chance to head down to the floor for your own pre-show adventure.

We had a great time kicking off our holiday season at our annual Holiday Party in North Alexandria – it was full of food, friendship, and fun – not to mention a visit from Jolly Old Saint You-Know-Who. Plus we relieved the best memories of 2015 with Barry Creech’s annual highlights video (and Bruce Steakley’s photos), made holiday crafts to brighten the season, and handed out our year-end awards.  (Watch for a blog with the names of the winners!)


Santa didn’t bring everything on your list?  Check out the new Special Love online store and pick-up a little something!


Help us kick-off the New Year with a bang by making a donation to help us sponsor more kids in 2016 (or get your rich Uncle Ludwig to do it).
