The 3rd Annual Dad & Me Camp Out - Father's Day weekend June 2019

What an amazing Dad & Me Camp Out we held this past Father’s Day weekend.  Thank you to the more than 300 Dads and Kids who joined us this year!  Wayland Rec and their high-energy counselors did an amazing job. 

The new location at the Town Building proved to a wonderful spot and the likely home to future Camp Outs.  After two years at the High School, most folks would tell you they liked the location, the more intimate nature of the setting and how we move from one area to the next. It worked well.    

The day started with the Wayland Majors (5th & 6th) All-Star Baseball game was played at Art King Field with hot dogs donated by Stop & Shop.  Soon after the ballgame, the Dads and kids started to arrive for an afternoon of activities and fun.   Kids and counselors were running around playing all sorts of games and activities in the beautiful sun.  That eventually lead to our b.good cookout, s’mores, the Lego 2 movie shown on a “big screen” and the different late night fire pits that sprung up around tent city.  It was perfect!

Thank you Katherine and Paul from Wayland Rec, you guys are fantastic partners in pulling this event off with such ease.  Thanks also to Wayland Fire, Seth Roman and screen builder extraordinaire, Mike Spelman of Prospect Hill Homes for all your help pulling together an amazing event.   

To keep this next tradition alive, we will need Dads who want to get involved and help carry the torch moving forward.  Please contact Scott Walters to learn more wayland.dads@gmail.com.
