Join Us for Family Day!

Parents and families are invited to join us on Saturday, June 11, 2022, for a fun mix of activities, a luncheon, and concerts by festival attendees!

Banquet/Luncheon Changes: Parents are invited to eat lunch with their campers at 11 a.m. in the Roy L. Smith Dining Hall and will enjoy a typical camp meal. There will not be a catered meal (as had been done in the past), but we will still have a short program to celebrate the ending of camp at this luncheon.  The All-Festival Concert will start at 1:30 p.m. following the lunch program. 

The price of the banquet/luncheon is $25/person for parents and guests.  (SMF participants are covered.)
