Weekend of Giving: July 20-22, 2018

Posted by on July 12, 2018

Every summer, over 20% of our campers require financial assistance to attend Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run, and Moose River Outpost. The need for scholarships is on-going and it’s our heartfelt desire to make our summer camps available to a wider population. Last summer, we gifted over $225,000 to bring more kids to camp.

Be a Changemaker!Commit to helping transform lives by donating to our Scholarship Fund during our Weekend of Giving, July 20th – 22nd. We need your help to reach our goal of raising $25,000 in three days!

The 2018 Work Weekend

Posted by on March 8, 2018

Summer is Coming!

Camp enrollment is coming in faster than ever this year. Lord willing we will have a third summer of growth at MRO! Even now we are getting as much ready as possible.

The re-opening of camp is always a daunting task. Each spring a group of men from Maine churches and a small group of MRO alumni get together in early June to give us a huge shot in the arm by getting the place ready for campers. Join us June 1st, 2nd, and 3rd to eat tons of great food, to be encouraged spiritually, and work hard. This event is a great opportunity for parents to bring your 12 years old or older son or daughter for an opportunity to serve camp. It’s also a great excuse for former staff to catch up with other staff you haven’t seen in a long time. What better way to reunite than by working together and getting a little dirt under your fingernails?

Sleeping arrangements will be in bunk-style cabins. Please bring your own bedding and toiletries. This event is for youth and adults that are eager to work hard. There is no cost for the event.

Projects this year will be boat prep, small engine repair, landscaping, setting up the flower pots/gardens, mowing, firewood, Sebas facelift, finishing the new crafts cabin remodel, smoke detector batteries, lightbulbs, and many much much more.
