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 modifications, 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, we take a group up Mt. Major and canoe over to Plum Island in Roberts Cove. In the evenings we have “camp fun” games, campfires, singing, and s’mores. You get the idea! Alumni Camp is open to all alumni of Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run, and Moose River Outpost. All current camp families are also welcome to attend. Alumni are more than 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 a reunion at Alumni Camp. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or any questions.
Details: Housing and Registration are separate costs. There are various price points for housing. Cabins are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration fees are based on age. On the slight chance that we may have available cabins (late August) and we will consider first-time families with a camp reference. Click here to download the 2018 Alumni Camp Registration Form.
Man Camp, May 4-6
Join us for a men’s only weekend in May. Men connected to Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run and Moose River Outpost, ages 16 and older, are welcome to join us. The weekend is spent doing work projects around camp—all in preparation for Incoming Day in June. 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. Camp pastor Zane Kang will lead us in a time of study, fellowship and worship. Housing and meals are provided! For more information, read here.
Cookie Camp, February
Cookie Camp is for women ages 22 and over who are connected to Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run and Moose River Outpost.

For more information or any questions, please contact email@example.com.
Friday evening: Arrival and prep.

Camp Brookwoods and Deer Run Winter Reunion
Winter Reunion is a wonderful time to reconnect with your camp friends! Depending on the weather, campers will have an opportunity to tube down Deer Run’s back hill, snowshoe around camp, do craft projects, 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 members. Campers sleep in age appropriate cabins. We also try to make transportation easy for parents by providing a coach bus that runs from Lexington, Massachusetts to Brookwoods and Deer Run. Additionally, we offer transportation to and from Logan Airport in Boston and Manchester Airport in New Hampshire. Transportation provided by Camp is complimentary and reservations are required. If you have questions about Winter Reunion, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or click here to register.
