Friday, July 26th – Sunday July 28th
Held at the Wayside Center
1100 Mill Pond Road
Faber, VA 22938
Arrive after 2:00pm on Friday, July 26th. Dinner will be served at 6:00pm with the first session of the?camp beginning after Friday dinner and ending with Sunday lunch at 1:00pm. As the curriculum is?cumulative, we ask that all participants arrive before the first session at 7:00pm, Friday and commit to?attending the entire workshop. If this is not possible, please do offer the space to another youth who?can attend throughout the weekend.
Contact Josh Diamond at email@example.com or at 540-421-2265 with any questions
We are asking for a suggested workshop fee of $50-$75 per youth for attending the camp. This would?help to drastically offset costs for food, lodging, materials and facilitation. However, do not let money?be a reason to not attend this workshop. We are willing to work with folks; please contact us if this is a?problem and we will work with you.
