2022 Community Camping Trip

July 15 - 17

Chatfield State Park

The Knights of Columbus have planned a parish-wide group camping weekend open to all church families this summer from July 15-17, 2022 at Chatfield State Park. Chatfield State Park is a beautiful state park right close by with a beach, marina, playgrounds, showers and restrooms. 

We’ve reserved one of the group camp sites and we have three trailer spaces and five tent spaces left. The cost to reserve your trailer space for the weekend is $75.00 and the cost to reserve your tent space for the weekend is $60.00. Costs also include breakfast, dinner and s’mores (more details below). There is also an additional cost of admission to the park, which is $10.00 per day, unless you have a yearly pass, in which case the entrance fee is free! 

More details to follow once we have a final list of families participating. Why not consider participating in this outdoor adventure?! Contact Brennan Mendus if you are interested for further details and to confirm your spot for the weekend.
