This was a small, but fun weekend of gaming that brought in some new people to the CamasCon experience. Tim “Keebler” Whitney challenged and encouraged us during to avoid idols, including gaming ones, and to reach out to others through our gaming.
Spring CamasCon, March 23-27, 2017
Our second extended length retreat was our largest CamasCon yet, with 57 people coming for at least part of the weekend. The speaker, Chris “Van Helsing” Weedin brought incredibly relevant and meaningful teaching. Another RPG session run by the Fishers was a hit. And the gaming food & fellowship was great, as always.
Fall CamasCon, November 3-7, 2016
What a great weekend of gaming and fellowship! We had 54 attendees, some of whom took advantage of the extra days Thursday and Monday. Rob Anderson taught on the image of Christ, peace and peacemaking. We were blown away by the generosity of our guests as the game raffle raised over $800 to split between the Camper Scholarship fund and the Hands and Feet Children’s home in Haiti.
Popular games for the weekend included Scythe, Cry Havok, Clank! , and Gold West. Several excellent RPG sessions were prepared and lead by Michael & Kaely Fisher. The longer weekend plus daylight savings allowed more time for conversing, beautiful autumn hikes and, of course, extra games. Steven Whitham reclaimed his Catan Champion title for the 5th time:
