Community Service

To Be Determined

 

After enjoying all of our fun events we believe in leaving no footprint or trace. So we would greatly appreciate volunteers to help with this effort. Also, we are beginning to make preparations for winter and our winter campers. Volunteers are eligible for free or discounted admissions to a variety of great programs, events, and camping opportunities. And as we are in the process of developing several primitive tenting campsites, volunteers would also have the option to name these sites after their family or group.  In addition to helping a very worthy cause, volunteers have time to spend the day with likeminded people while giving back to the community. A snack, tools and gloves will be provided. Please bring a water bottle and be sure to sign in so you may be invited to our Volunteer Appreciation Event.

 

A Night Under The Stars

To Time to be determined

This is another free event hosted by The Derry Township Camping Association and presented by the Harrisburg Astronomy Society. All are invited to attend this event. Please RSVP using email, phone or event form.

They will learn how to compost leftover food and navigation skills such as reading trail signs and tracking various animals. Archery will also be offered during this event for an additional fee of $15. The girls will be working on a project that they will take home with them after the event to remember their weekend as a warrior at Camp Catherine.

We will also be selling pumpkins, gourds, flowers, cornstalks and apples.

This is a fundraiser event to help fund our educational programs so there will be a small charge or donation for some events or activities. We are also looking for additional vendors and craft ideas and are seeking volunteers to help with this event. Please go to our Fall Festival Facebook page for more information or to volunteer.

 

 

Dinosaur Dig

To Be Determined

Cost $6.00

 

It is said that dinosaurs may have once roamed right here near Camp Catherine. Even though they are long gone, they leave behind the opportunity for fun activities and great learning experiences. Listen to stories about these awe-inspiring creatures and join in making crafts to take home. It is possible that we may even find a foot print or a fossil as we walk across the same ground that the dinosaurs once did.  You will have the chance to taste test and experiment with some of the plants and foods they may have eaten here in our area. Come travel back in time and bring your best dinosaur roar! Please RSVP for this event using any of our Camp Catherine contact means.
