It’s All Fun & Games

Imagine an infield, surrounded by tents, each with its own cause flying proudly. Imagine a community of fans commemorating a great summer by cheering on their team. Imagine an opportunity to meet and learn about other groups doing great work as well as benefactors who are looking for great efforts to help fund. Imagine cash prizes awarded to the day’s champions to help them fund their own great causes. That’s what we imagine and we are excited to bring it to life.

We believe in community. We support it, we invest in it and, whenever possible, we try to create it.  The BackYard Games was designed to bring all of those efforts together in one place to celebrate the unofficial wrap of summer and the people and groups that make up the community we all serve.

We hope you’ll join us.. register a team and or secure a spectating spot, and help us have some fun and raise some funds for the charities and causes that are most important to you!
From the Chair
Summer is a great time to be active outdoors and enjoy the support and camaraderie of the BaseCamp community. To that end, the BaseCamp Board met in early July to discuss the vision for the BC-AC Clubhouse and first draft plans from our Project Lead, Dan Minzner.  We will soon be forming a small team to get input from across the membership so that the clubhouse meets the needs of the entire BC-AC community.  Stay tuned as plans progress and mark your calendars for the Labor Day weekend “BackYard Games” fundraiser.

PS don’t forget about the volunteer morning at Grow-A-Row on Aug 17 that helps feed those needing in our community – if interested you can sign up here.
