Fall Festival at Camp Daggett
Every other year, the Board of Directors and Staff of Camp Daggett look forward to opening the doors of our wonderful facility to the public as an expression of gratitude for all of the support we receive each year from our great communities. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day on October 8th, 2017! This was the 7th time Camp Daggett has held this event. We could not do this without the volunteers that help us. This year we had 74 volunteers! These included students from Central Michigan University, the Petoskey High School National Honor Society, friends, neighbors of Camp Daggett, board members and staff.
The final numbers are not in yet but we anticipate there were close to 1,200 people in attendance, if you count the number of cars coming in, we ran out of apples and carmel, went through 36 gallons of apple cider, over 2,000 donut holes and over 550 hotdogs! There were long lines for boat rides and hay rides, countless faces, pumpkins and rocks painted. Continuous music provided by Jeff Pagel provided the perfect mood for a glorious day at Camp Daggett on beautiful Walloon. We have had some great Fall Festivals in the past, but this may have been the best one ever!
We will be adding pictures from the event. Over 130 family photos were taken. These can be accessed by clicking on this link:
Fall is such a beautiful time of year at Camp, and what better way to showcase that beauty than to share it with the public! We cannot thank our many supporters and our local Northern Michigan community enough.
