Event Schedule

We are pleased to share our tentative event schedule so you can see the fun we have planned, but note that all events are subject to change.

Prize Tournaments

To be announced. Highlights include prize tournaments, an archery woods walk, and a footrace on Sunday morning. The magnificent prizes for the tournaments will be displayed here when available.

Hearty Food

Breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday are provided free of charge for overnight guests. Food and drinks at the parties on Friday and Saturday nights are also free. There will be a lunch tavern on Saturday (which as of now will require guests to pay). Saturday evening is a potluck; the site will provide the main dish, but guests are encouraged to bring side dishes to supplement it.

Event Site

Cedar Lake Outdoor Center
Waterloo Recreation Area
2500 Pierce Road
Chelsea, MI 48118

This site is easy to get to. (If you're on I-94, take exit 157 and drive north for about 3 minutes. The entrance to the campsite is on your left!) But even though it's easy to find, it *feels* very isolated.

Cabin Bed (2 nights): $15/bed
Tent Camping: $0

There are three sets of three cabins (nine total); we plan about 10 people per cabin. Flush toilets are located at each set of cabins, and there are showers near the main dining hall. The cabins have electricity. We will start accepting reservations for the cabins in a few months (exact date TBD). There will be a discount to people who would like to rent an entire cabin.
