Summer Picnic & Campout


When: July 23-25, 2010

Where: Lake Casitas Recreation Area, Lake Side Group Camp


                • We have planned a July picnic and campout at Lake Casitas for Big Brother and Big Sister matches. Bigs can also attend/volunteer without their littles.

                • If you have not been matched long enough (6 months), or you do not wish to spend the night you may come up on Saturday for a picnic and outdoor activities.

                • Camping: You may camp out both Friday and Saturday or just one night. You are encouraged to carpool to reduce entry fees.

                • About the campground: The group camp is reserved from Friday (7/23/10) 2:00PM to Sunday (7/25/10) noon. 

                o The area is adjacent to the lake with an excellent view

                o The campground is rustic (a chemical toilet but no flush toilets)

                o The shower facility is about one mile away

                o The campground has water available


• If you want to camp: matches should bring their own camping gear (sleeping bags, tents or trailer). Matches will eat on their own Friday. The group will cook and eat together for the three meals on Saturday and Sunday Breakfast.


• We have our last planning meeting for those interested in helping with activities, meals, and supplies on Tuesday, July 20 at the Big Brothers Big Sisters office.
