Camp Finberg Alumni Event – Sat, Aug 27

Join us for an afternoon of traditional camp fun. Connect with old friends, tour the grounds, and learn more about what Camp Finberg is like in 2022! We’ll have opportunities for all guests to swing from the heights of our ropes course, shoot for a bullseye at archery, and go for a swim. (Clarification for many of you: Swimming will take place in the pool – not the pond!) Then kick back at the fire pits to share old camp stories and even break out some old camp songs!
