Annual Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner!

By: sean Posted on: November 2, 2015 Comments: 0


Once again on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, Singerman Lodge will be filled with the aroma of turkey fresh out of the ovens and fryers, baked rolls, and creamy mashed potatoes.  Campers, staff, and families, please join us for a feast and an opportunity to gather at the place we all love.

If you feel like taking a hike around Camp, feel free to show up early. Gathering will begin at 5.30pm and when 6 o’clock comes around, it’s every person for themselves as the indulgent buffet lines begin.

If you have never attended a Pre-Thanksgiving before, it’s a feast you don’t want to miss, with the focus on reconnecting and beginning the holiday celebrations. The event is FREE!  Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.
