Turn trash into cash at Camp Fletcher


Do you have stuff scattered around the house that you no longer want or need but might just be another person’s treasure? Of course you do, and we’re here to help. Put all that junk in your trunk and head out to Camp Fletcher on April Fool’s Day (Saturday April 1st) where we’ll be holding our semi-annual community yard sale from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Here’s how our Junk In Your Trunk event works.  For a measly ten bucks you are assigned a space to sell your goodies for the entire event.  Even better, admission for everyone else is free, so it won’t cost you a penny to come to the camp and shop till you drop. Your rental fee will go toward purchasing supplies for Camp Fletcher’s upcoming summer camp season.

We’ll have food vendors on hand in case all of that shopping and swapping makes you hungry.  We’ll have tables for rent for another five bucks if you want to get a little fancy with your display.

If you’d like to meet our camp director, see the facilities or learn more about summer camp programs at Camp Fletcher, we’ll be giving Open House tours every half hour from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

If something you bring to Junk In Your Trunk doesn’t sell—no problem.  You don’t have to drag your unsold goods back to your garage if you don’t want to. We’ll have a Donation Station on site where you may drop off anything that doesn’t sell, and we’ll arrange a pickup with one of our local thrift charities to pick up those unsold goods.

If you’d like to be a seller at Junk In Your Trunk, you need to register in advance. Don’t wait—the best slots will go fast. Here’s a link for more information and where you can download a registration form with all of the details, rules and other fine print.


If you have questions, need directions to Camp Fletcher or have any other questions about Junk In Your Trunk, feel free to call the camp office at 205-428-1059 or email us at campfletcher@campfire-al.org.

We can’t wait to see what treasures you bring to Junk In Your Trunk. If you’re like us you’ll end up buying as much stuff as you sell. So get your junk together and get ready to come see us at Camp Fletcher on April 1st. No fooling.
