What a great first family camp!!!

Camp Bangarang’s first family weekend camp went off without a hitch! Although it was a bit chilly and rainy, that didn’t stop our campers and volunteers one bit. We want to thank everyone who made camp possible- folks who donated, came to events, spread the word, volunteered AND especially the wonderful families that trusted us with their weekend. THANK YOU for making this camp dream a reality! Because of people like you, we will have many more camps to come!!! We also wanted to say a BIG thank you, to YMCA Camp Wapsie for hosting us- they did a great job, and we will be back!

Our Fall Family Weekend is just days away!!!

Taking place at YMCA Camp Wapsie, Oct 5th – 7th families will be able to have fun outdoors together, laugh together, get messy together, relax together and grow together!
