1. Throw a playful wedding reception.
Dreading the long line of strangers and uptight clothing of a typical reception? Exchange the strange line for a zip line, and keep it casual by booking your reception at Maple Dell Scout Camp. If you want something classy, you can have that too. Host a large dinner in the new stake activity center, and take advantage of its equipped kitchen. Plus, what says great decorations better than the backdrop of nature?
Sometimes, it’s nice to work outside the blandness of four white walls and office desks. Take your employees somewhere they can think more clearly and stress less (yes, nature tends to do the job!). And, you don’t even have to worry about having technical resources. You can utilize the Digital Media Center to create and edit presentations.
3. Have Girl’s Camp there, for crying out loud.
Girls just want to have fun. But they also want to grow spiritually, gain life skills, and make memories. It’s time to consider Maple Dell for more than just the boys. The girls in your ward or stake will be able to accomplish all the necessary requirements while at the camp. Also, what female won’t appreciate the benefits of new showers while camping?
4. Utilize the grounds for a great youth conference.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints explains the purposes of youth conference on their website: “Build faith in Jesus Christ, strengthen testimonies, develop talents, make new friends, and have fun with youth who share similar beliefs and standards.” Maple Dell Camp blends the spirituality of nature with the fun of outdoor recreation to achieve that goal.
5. Host your next family reunion.
A family that camps together, stays together. At least, we think that’s how the saying goes. There’s plenty for your relatives to enjoy: archery, shooting, rock climbing, zip lining, and more. Besides, if you really want to tie your family together, the new High COPE Ropes Challenge Course should do the job.
From eager Scouts to playful brides, Maple Dell Scout Camp, or any of your other 12 camps, can be used in ways you might not have imagined. Have ideas for how you want to use the camp? Contact John Gailey for rental questions.
