2017 Fall Friends of the Camps Day 

Thank you to everyone who helped to make Friends of the Camps Day a great success again this year.  On Saturday, November 4, around seventy-five friends gathered together to celebrate our camps and to raise funds.  Following the live auction, everyone enjoyed a spaghetti lunch.

Through many generous donations, $4,286 was raised at the event.  These funds will be used in the camp general fund for items such as insurance, maintenance, improvements, and special projects.

The Maple Street Vision Award was also presented at Friends Day.  Mr. Bill Summers and Mr. David Summers of Golden Kernel Pecan Company in Cameron were recognized for their dedication to the camps for many years.  We appreciate all that they have done in the past and all that they continue to currently do behind the scenes to help keep Camp Summers & Manget looking beautiful.

2016 Fall Friends of the Camps Day

The annual Friends of the Camps Day was held on Saturday, November 5 at Camp Summers & Manget.  Over 75 people gathered together to raise over $3,300 for our two camps.  Following the traditional live auction, a BBQ lunch was enjoyed by everyone.  Thank you to everyone who helped make the day great.

Each year at the Friends of the Camps Day, the Maple Street Vision Award is given to an individual or group for dedication and passion for the camp ministries.  This year’s winner was the Eastern Conference Woman’s Missionary Society.  The WMS faithfully supports the camps, often has special projects for the camps, and provides campers with bags each summer.


2015 Fall Friends of the Camps Day

The annual Friends of the Camps Day scheduled for November 7, 2015 was rescheduled due to flooding complications at Camp Summers & Manget.  The event was held on Saturday, January 23.  Approximately sixty individuals braved the cold temperatures and snow in the air to attend the live auction and soup lunch.  The day began in the Tabernacle with a lively live auction conducted by Mr. Eddie Cook of the Morris Chapel Southern Methodist Church.  He encourage the bidders to remember the importance of our camps and the lives that have been impacted as they bid on the items throughout the morning.  There was a variety of items to choose from.  Following the auction, the friends of the camp joined together in the Dining Hall for a soup lunch.  A great day of fellowship was had by all.  The total raised for the day was $2,341.50.  Mark your calendar now for the 2016 Friends of the Camps Day on Saturday, November 5.  The funds raised during the Friends Day go towards the general expenses of the camp properties including insurance, utilities, upgrades, and more.
