Celebration of 50 Years at Camp Mary Mac
Celebration of the Completion of the Dining Hall & Kitchen Expansion, and Re-Dedication of the Dining Hall in honor of Shorty & Thelma Mellott
On Saturday, April 29, 2017, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Capital Area Region will gather between 10:00AM and 2PM to celebrate two momentous occasions: the 50th Anniversary of the purchase of the land which became Camp Mary Mac and the completion of the Dining Hall and Kitchen.
The Public is Welcome so bring your neighbors and extended family. If your kids have never visited a church camp, this is a great opportunity to tour the camp facilities.
The celebration includes a dedication ceremony for the Shorty & Thelma Mellott Dining Hall, and a chicken picnic dinner as a gift to all those who attend. Our volunteer crew, the Camp Mary Mac Angels, as well as the new generation of stewards of our beloved church camp, will be honored.
Please RSVP directly to email@example.com. Mike Cline, member of First Christian Church – Boonesboro and a Fellowship of Christian Athletes Character Coach for local youth sports teams, is the Camp MM Management Committee Co-Chairperson. He is ordering the food for the Celebration Lunch (no charge to attendees) so we are asking for an RSVP.
There will be shuttle van service between the parking area in the big Camp MM meadow and the Dining Hall. We will shuttle attendees back and forth to the parking area before and after the event.
Our CCCA-Sponsored Camps, Conferences, and Retreats welcome church members as well as the Public. The CCCA Region is committed to the principles of Pro-Reconciliation / Anti-Racism across all our programs. Our camps are open to all believers and seekers.
