2017 Wonderful Activities


A Social Event held in the Primitive Camping area. Our LADIES ask you to join them in friendly swapping of fun and conversation.

Camp Fire

The camp fire area is a very busy spot. Not only do we have a camp fire in the evening but this is the spot of many fun activities. This is where the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, Blessing of the Camp, and Evening socializing is and is not far from the potluck area, seminars and Traders Row (that's shopping ladies). It is the center of Primitive Camp. It is also a nice place just to sit and relax if the opportunity should arise.


We have a pot luck on both Friday and Saturday evenings. bring a dish, share a dish, is our motto.  If possible have recipe. We also ask that once the pot luck is over to make sure that your dish is picked up and if possible help to clean up the area so that we can continue to go on with the other wonderful activities of the evening.  The sooner everything is cleaned up and put away the sooner the fun can continue.
