Horsham Camp invites community to June Supper

Wire Staff

The 83rd annual College Settlement Camp Community Supper will be held on June 4 at the camp, which is located in Horsham Township.

The community is invited to participate in kids’ games, face-painting and more. The June Supper is the precursor to camp opening, which this year is June 22. Camp continues through Aug. 15.

The dinner doubles as an opportunity to get to know the camp’s new executive director, Rob Kutzik, who took the reins of the 235-acre camp on Feb. 16.

“It’s a great time for people to come and meet the new executive director,” said Jan Finnegan, director of development for the Summer Camps at College Settlement and the Outdoor School in Horsham. “It’s even more of an opportunity for the community.”

The camp recently held a volunteer cleanup event and open houses for campers and their families. But, the June Supper is traditionally the time for campers and non-campers alike to come share a meal and learn more about what College Settlement Summer Camps have to offer. Students who spent time with the Outdoor School in Horsham during the school year bring their parents and siblings to show them where they stayed.

The nonprofit camp does not charge a ticket price for the meal, as it is a community event and up to each participant what they would like to pay, Finnegan said.

The camp rents a large dining tent to house as many as 400 June Supper attendees, who, in addition to the meal, can enjoy hayrides, kids’ activities and chances at raffle baskets.

The June Supper will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on June 4 at College Settlement Camp, 593–97 Witmer Road, between Norristown and Dresher roads in Horsham. Advance tickets are not necessary, but RSVP by calling the camp office at 215.542.7974 or camps@campmanagement.org.
