Alumni Camp: Labor Day Weekend
For four days you can be a camper again! Alumni Camp runs from the Friday afternoon of Labor Day weekend through Monday afternoon. Over the course of the weekend, it’s camp just like you remember it (with a few minor changes, no Blob, sorry). Saturday and Monday mornings there are regular activities: archery, riflery, sailing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, canoeing, crafts, outdoor cooking, rocket assembly, etc. In the afternoons, we’ll have “open waterfront.” In addition, you can hike Mt. Major or canoe over to Plum Island in Roberts Cove. Our evening program includes campfires, singing, and s’mores. Alumni Camp is open to all alumni of Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run, and Moose River Outpost. Current camp families are also welcome to attend. Alumni are welcome to invite families to join them in their cabin for the weekend. We are more than happy to help you reconnect with your camp friends if you would like to organize an Alumni Camp reunion. Please email Melissa for more information.
Details: Housing and Registration are separate costs. There are various price points for housing. Cabins are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration fees are based on age. If we have vacancies in late August we will consider first-time families.
MRO Merry Friendsmas: Early December
Former MRO staff are invited to come to Camp Brookwoods (Alton, NH) in early December to celebrate the gift of friendship and joy of Christmas. When you walk through the doors into Merry Friendsmas, you pick up right where you left off, no matter how long it’s been. We’ll spend the weekend encouraging each other, sharing stories, and making new memories. Housing and meals are included in the cost of registration. For more information or any questions, please email Seth.
Camp Brookwoods & Deer Run Winter Reunion: Winter Break
Our Annual Winter Reunion is a wonderful time to reconnect with your camp friends and counselors! Depending on the weather, campers will have an opportunity to tube down Deer Run’s back hill, snowshoe around camp, play games, sing songs, make s’mores over a campfire, and drink a lot of hot cocoa. This reunion is open to campers (ages 12+) and staff. Campers sleep in age appropriate cabins. We make arrangements for a coach bus that leaves from Lexington, MA to Brookwoods and Deer Run (extra charge). If traveling by plane, we offer transportation to and from Logan Airport in Boston and Manchester Airport in New Hampshire. Airport transportation provided by Camp is complimentary and reservations are required. If you have questions about Winter Reunion, please email the registrar.
Cookie Camp: February
Cookie Camp is for women ages 22 and over who are connected to Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run, and Moose River Outpost. This weekend is dedicated to baking sugar cookies and assembling care packages for our alumni who are currently pursuing their undergraduate degrees (most of our counselors). We bake over 2,000 cookies and send approximately 250 care packages! If there’s time, on Sunday we can snowshoe through camp. Housing and meals are provided. For more information, please email Melissa.
Wild Reunion: March
Former WILD campers and staff get together in New Hampshire to spend a weekend encouraging each other, sharing stories, and making some new memories. Come stay at Camp Brookwoods for the weekend and hike in the White Mountains with your friends from WILD. Housing and meals are included in the cost of registration. Come prepared with hiking gear, winter layers, a backpack, and traction (micro spikes or snow shoes). For more information or any questions, please email Seth.
Man Camp: Spring
Join us for a men’s only work weekend. Men connected to Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run and Moose River Outpost, ages 12 and older, are welcome to join us. The weekend is spent doing projects around camp—all in preparation for Incoming Day. If you are only available on Saturday, that’s fine! Our punch list this time of year is a long one, and we greatly appreciate your help with painting, splitting wood, carpentry projects, and clean up! Some years we have a specific project that we tackle, like porches on the Brookwoods’ cabins. Our camp pastor will lead us in a time of study, fellowship and worship. Housing and meals are provided! For more information or any questions, please email Tim.
