We will be camping at Fort Yargo, 210 S Broad Street, Winder, GA 30680. We are asking all children to be at the church 6:30. We are encouraging everyone to come eat at the fish fry since we will not be serving dinner on friday not, just a few snacks and smores. If you can not make it to the church by 6:30 we ask you to drop your children off at the campground but please let us know about this beforehand. We will return to the church by noo depending on breakdown time. If you would like to pick up your child from the campsite let me know. If you have not filled out a youth information form and a medical release your child will not be able to attend this weekend. We will have forms available friday night if you need to fill this out.
