150th Celebration

Most of our 150th events are “intergenerational” – meant to be enjoyed by children, teens, and adults.  A few are more specific – the Victorian Tea for women and girls; the beard contest for men; the pre-concert pizza party for teens; and the children’s parade and magic show.  Of course, we hope that even if you’re not IN a parade, you’ll be watching it.

Below are just some of the special events planned.  Refer to this year’s up to date Campmeeting 2018 schedule for the most current details on times, dates and locations.
