I got 5 cabins (60 people) to Camp Jewell Labor Day Weekend at the Hide Away Camp. We'll be all together!
Already paid the deposit.

If you you are wishing to come you should sign up on the waiting list. I'll manually transfer every one that sent the check, from the Waiting to the Attending list.

Sooo.... please don't delay in signing up. Please, e-mail me for my address and send me a check with the full payment ($70 each person), to get your spots. First come first served!
I won't reserve any spot unless I got the check from you, as last time it was a pain on the neck to collect it.
In the case that you change your mind about coming, I will refund the full payment to you if I knowledge at least 2 months in advance, after that, only if I would be able to sell your spots to someone else.

Come join us for a weekend (8/31 to 9/3) you'll never forget! No better way to end the summer than with friends and some camping without roughing it! That's right, out in the WILD with indoor plumbing!!!!

Wait until you see the facilities: cabins with a central room and 2 sleeping room that arrange 6 people (bunk beds) on each room plus 2 bathrooms. Men and Boys on one side, Women and Girls on the other.

This is too good to be true! Imagine 3 days of recreation, lodging, meals (3 plus snacks per day), dancing, swimming, wall climbing, zip lines, horseback riding, boating, arts and crafts, fishing, campfires, smores and more, all included!!! I know I left a lot out but check out the website for more information: CAMP JEWELL
Also you could check in our past's events: A labor day at Camp Jewell and see the pics and the comments about this event, last time.

And wait, it gets even better!........The total cost for this 3 day weekend is....(drum roll)...........$70 per person!!!!! Yes, you read it right!! Like we did last year I added $10 each because I would like to collect some money to donate to YMCA for their "Sponsor a Child's Camp Found Raising". People that want to give extra they can and all will go toward it..
This is one deal we can't pass up!

"Since 1901, Camp Jewel YMCA has facilitated the building of lasting and meaningful relationships between campers, families, guests, staff, and members of the camp community...... "

"Located on a picturesque 540 acre site surrounding Triangle Lake in Colebrook, Connecticut, Camp Jewel YMCA has both the dedicated staff and excellent facilities to offer unique and exciting programs for you, your child, or your organization....."

Looking forward to the moment when we'll gather again on our favorite porch there!

    This was our first trip to Camp Jewell and we had a great time and can't wait to do it again. We had quality family time, plenty of fun and lots of convo. It was really hard to be new and meet the other members because there was soooooooo much to do and we were trying to fit everything in. Although we didn't really socialize to much with the rest of the group, we did get to share a room with 2 great families and had the best time ever.

    I had the best time ever and never get tired of attending Camp Jewell Labor Day Weekend Family Camp. The weather was beautiful all weekend long. Got in loads of fun activities including, hiking, horse trail riding, swimming, kayaking, THE GIANT SWING, the flying squirrel, Rummikub board game, camp fire singing/entertainment. The staff and people at Camp Jewell were all wonderful!!!!! Looking forward to attending again next year.
