The Dad & Me Camp Out - Father's Day weekend June 2018 (see pictures below)

We celebrated another Father's Day with our 2nd Annual Wayland Dad & Me Camp Out at the Wayland High School on Saturday (6/16 & 6/17).  The event was a huge success with hundreds of participants, sponsors, helpers, counselors, moms and dads. 

Thank you Wayland Recreation Department for all of your hard work and attention to detail running the event.  Between your counselors running activities, the camp ground layout and your b.good & Mel's Cafe cooking, what else could we ask for?  You guys were awesome!  Thanks also go out the WCPA helping organize and integrate your always popular Field Day activities into the Dad and Me Camp Out.
