Flyfishing and float trips were in full force on the river this past weekend. Water is already good swimming temperature. Trails are ready for exploring and the camp tent sites that were cleared and seeded last Fall are covered with lush grass. Only 60 days until Camp opens!
The camp has been blessed recently by financial contributions and with some new kayaks donated. There has also been a canoe/kayak trailer donated to be used and kept onsite. The camp had a promotional display at the Michigan Christian Conference at GLCC in Lansing last weekend. There were many who expressed words of encouragement for the camp work and it appears the word is getting out.
Winter on the Rifle River. This view is taken from Baptismal Bend on Feb 21, 2014. Snowmobile and animal tracks evident on river but recent thawing rendered it unsafe for foot traffic.
Work is done for the year at the camp. Sites have been cleared for the main tent (picture) and campsites. The camp will be open in July to finish up work for the August meeting.
The speakers have been set for the 2013 meeting. Pre-register now and make plans to meet in the woods!
