Junk In Your Trunk and open house is THIS Saturday

Camp Fletcher is hosting our semi-annual community yard sale THIS Saturday, April 1st from 8:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m.  We already have more than 45 sellers looking to unload all kinds of geegaws and knicknacks, so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and see us!  If you’re not in the neighborhood, you need to make plans to go out of your way and come see us anyway.JIYT

It’s not too late to become a seller at Junk In Your Trunk.  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. Questions? You can  drop us an e-mail at campfletcher@campfire-al.org or give us a call at 205-428-1059.

If that’s not enough excitement for you, we will be holding a summer camp open house from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday and from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. on Sunday. You’re welcome to stop by at any time during either open house. If those days and times aren’t convenient for you, call the camp office at 205-428-1059 to schedule an appointment with us.  This is a great opportunity for parents and campers (or anyone interested in being involved at camp) to stop by and meet the staff, tour the grounds, and learn more about 2017 summer programs and opportunities.

Camp Fletcher named one of Alabama’s best summer camps

It comes as no surprise to us, but we were thrilled to see this article on AL.com yesterday naming Camp Fletcher among Alabama’s best summer camps.

Camp counselor openings

We’re still interviewing potential camp counselors for our upcoming summer season. Working with Camp Fletcher’s kids is one of the most fun, challenging and rewarding jobs you’ll ever have. It’s also a great addition to any college student’s resume. Do you love kids and think you have the right stuff to be a Camp Fletcher camp counselor? If so, tell us about it by e-mailing your resume and letter of interest to campfletcher@campfire-al.org or give us a call at 205-428-1059 for more information.

Summer camp enrollment update

Several weeks of our summer camp programming are already at or near capacity for some age groups.

You can reach us at campfletcher@campfire-al.org or by calling us at 205-428-1059.

Thank you Yanfeng!

A huge shout-out and great big thank you to our friends at Yanfeng Automotive Interiors. A small army of volunteers in bright yellow shirts showed up at Camp Fletcher on a drizzly Saturday morning, and boy did they come ready to work! Armed with brooms and chain saws and even a skid steer (a bulldozer-like thingy), the Yanfeng employees and their family members gave our bunkhouses and other buildings a thorough spring cleaning, cleared fallen trees from our trails, brought down some large trees that had fallen victim to last year’s drought and pine beetle infestation, and did a whole lot of other great work all over the camp.

The weather steadily improved as the morning wore on, and after several hours of labor, everyone swapped stories while feasting on well-earned chicken sandwiches as the world’s biggest bonfire blazed in the background.

We can’t thank the good people at Yanfeng enough for their hard work and financial support of Camp Fletcher. In one day they put hundreds of hours into making Camp Fletcher a better place and helped us to get ready for the upcoming summer camp season. This is the second year that the company has organized a volunteer workday at Camp Fletcher. In addition to being a great corporate citizen, Yanfeng and its people are true friends and partners of Camp Fletcher.
