There is great excitement in the air as we look ahead to 2018, our 100th summer of operation. To kick off our Centennial Celebration, we have created four major Centennial initiatives: Events, Publications, Archives, and Capital Campaign. More information on the Capital Campaign will be coming soon!

100 years of operation is a remarkable achievement, and we have lots to celebrate. Please join in commemorating this special anniversary! Whether you look back on Merrie-Woode’s rich history in our Centennial book or extensive Archives, participate in the Capital Campaign to ensure our future, or join our celebration at camp in the summer of 2018, there are a multitude of ways to share in this momentous occasion!
