Weekly Wire for April 20, 2011

Travelling Ministry?

Partridge Family Bus

Well not exactly. Your Samish Island Board of Directors is looking for temporary housing for our guest ministry. Due to some recent renovations at the East Residence we’ve lost the area that we were using  in past years. The Partridge Family Van above was just to get your attention, but we are looking for something that is mobile. Do you or someone you know have an RV or Trailer you’d like to sell (or better yet donate) to the campgrounds? We have a quick two week window before we’ll have to act on something else, so please let us know ASAP. Contact Debra Donohue


Spring Cleaning


Unfortunately our cleaning supplies won’t actually fix up the campgrounds themselves so we need your help!  Remember that most all of us can help in some way, including the kids.  If you think back to when you were a child and helped with Spring Cleaning at camp, its a memory of pride and ownership you will carry with you for life…and a great gift to give YOUR children.


Samish Island Work Week

This year over 1,500 people attending over 30 events will come to Samish Island Campground.   It’s time to prepare to welcome them!  Come help us clean, mow, trim, paint, sweep, weed eat, wipe, spray, nail, pressure wash, edge, repair, tune up, wash and set up!  Bring your family and friends and spend a week or a day at Samish!  You'll feel great!!

Samish Work Week Monday to Friday May 2-6
Work Days Saturday May 7 and June 11
Housing and Meals Provided
RSVP  Glen Fishel 360.757.4559  or Mark Chapman 360.766.8125 or Terry Smiley 360.854-0988
In addition to regular cleaning and maintenance, special projects will include:
Siding on two classroom cabins
New Gables on one row of cabins
Build porches on Dorm Cabins C and D
Re-side South Side of Brown Restroom

We have lots of “very easy” jobs too so come on out!


Hills of Peace Camp Opening

New Date

Camp Opening Weekend for Hills of Peace  will take place on May 14-15 this year. This is one week earlier than our traditional May long weekend date. We changed it hoping more people could come for a day and a half of cleaning, light maintenance, fun and fellowship. People will be arriving on Friday night, but the work will start Saturday morning after breakfast and continue until mid day on Sunday. Hope to see you there!

Registration Instructions for Camping Season

Recently I was asked if it is possible to set up a registration link on the website where you simply fill out your information and hit ‘send’ to make registration easier. Here’s what we’ve come up with:

To register for camps please use this link Camp Registration fill out the form and email it to the appropriate camp director. This is used as a courtesy to the camp director, to  hold your spot at the camp, retreat, or function, and to provide the cooks with basic numbers for meals.

The enrollment form must be printed, filled out, scanned and emailed, snail mailed, or you can bring the signed forms with you to camp.  This procedure is in place because we MUST have signatures on these forms.

Additional Medical and Liability information can be found on the CWM Downloads page of the CWM Website as well.
