    Star Wars Weekend Camp is an overnight camp for kids in grades 2-7 who love Star Wars! The kids get dropped off Friday evening beginning at 6:00pm. They get picked up Sunday afternoon at 2:00pm. We spend the weekend playing Star Wars inspired games and activities including a LOT of dueling!!! The kids will bunk in cabins with assigned counselors while Northridge volunteers will bunk in Pilgrim's Lodge. Volunteers may spend the entire weekend, stay just one night or just come out Saturday for the day. We have 9 rooms in the lodge with 3 bunks in each room. ALL meals are provided for Northridge volunteers!!!

    Cost for the campers is $100 for the first child and just $75 for siblings. Northridge members who send their kids will receive 50% off (just $50 per child). Volunteers, of course, attend FREE including all meals!!! I will post a promo code soon to use when registering a child for the Northridge discount. Northridge had a great turnout last year and, despite the rain, had a blast!!! Please post your availability. Thank you!!!

    Where: Dunkirk Camp and Conference Center, 3602 East Lake Rd., Dunkirk, NY 14048

    When: September 19-21, 2014 (you may arrive as early as 4:00pm on Friday to settle in)

    I've had this on my calendar since it was first brought up in a club meeting; looking forward to it! I have to attend Curtain Up! in Buffalo Friday night but I will be there starting Saturday morning. After breakfast, do you happen to know at this point roughly when the first activity will be Saturday?

    This is a possibility for Dan and Aiden. We will get back to confirm. Sounds fun. It will be too much for me and my bum knee at this point. :(

    Thank you for the status updates! The first activity Saturday morning will follow breakfast and begin at approximately 9:00. I will share a detailed schedule as the event gets closer and we have a better idea how many kids and volunteers will be attending. I will try to post the discount code for Northridge members' children by this weekend.

    I will be there. Peter Jr. I think, also. Katherine - she has dance on Saturdays, but I'm looking to wiggle her out of it for the weekend. She really enjoys coming out for this.

    Sorry for being out of touch for so long. We just finished up our last two weeklong camps in Dunkirk and the sumer season is now over. Now... time to focus on Star Wars weekend which is just 5 weeks away!!! There has been a LOT of interest and excitement from the kids at camp this summer wanting to return for Star Wars weekend. MANY of them were in attendance at the ball game and they all LOVED it!!!

    A discount code should be active sometime on Monday. If you register your child for the weekend use the discount code "starwars" (all lower case and no space) for $50 off or just $50 per child for the weekend. Visit www.dunkirkcc.com to register a child. Adult volunteers do not need to register.

    It's difficult to predict how big a group we will have but I am expecting it to be bigger than last year. I'll post numbers as the event gets closer and as registrations come in. Thank you again for your support of Star Wars weekend at the Dunkirk Camp and Conference Center!!!

    The discount code for Northridge members' kids is now active. Enter the code "starwars" when prompted to save 50% or just $50 per child for the weekend. Volunteers, of course, are provided lodging and all meals at no cost! Let me know how it works as CampMinder is still a fairly new system for the camp.

    Come on people ..looking for a few more...this is an awesome event and great way to have a lil get away and hang out with fellow North Ridge members and put a lot of smiles on kids faces. Although it looks like we might need a volunteer to lead jedi camp.

    I'm going to try to come, at least for a little bit. It may not be possible, it will be the 2nd day of my in-law's visit. They're coming all the way from Germany and it has been a few years since they have come. So it's a big deal, but I was so bummed out about missing it last year. I'll do my best to be there!
