TAA-MN Summer 2010 Camp Shamineau Retreat, 07/30 to 08/01

TAAMN has organized camping events at Camp Shanimeau in the past summers. Almost everyone enjoyed. TAAMN would like to organize an event again this year during the weekend of July 30th to August 1st. The preliminary agenda for this event is as follows:
  1. July 30th, Friday, check-in at Poplar Ridge, Camp Shamineau, between 5:00pm and 8:00pm. Address: 3695 Ridge Road, Motley, MN 56466 (www.shamineau.org).
  2. July 31st, Saturday, enjoy activities.
  3. Aug 1st, Sunday, Brunch 9:00am-9:30am. Continue with activities. Check out at noon. You may continue with some activities, e.g. canoeing.

The estimated price for this year is: $85 for adults, $55 for kids age 4-12, and no charge for kid 0-3. This covers lodging, four meals, and the use of camp facilities. Depending on the number of people, there can be a small adjustment of the price (there is a minimum charge) and we will let you know then. The camp provides three meals Saturday and one meal Sunday. We will have sign-up sheet for each family to bring your favorite snacks, bottle water, fruits, poker cards, chess, etc. No alcoholic drink is allowed.

Poplar Ridge is a dorm style cabin. It has 10 rooms with bunk beds. Bed mattress is provided but no bedding. Seven to eight families with young children can have individual rooms (up to five persons each). You need request when register. Young couples and singles will split into male and female groups and live in two large rooms. Room assignment will be done before arrival. Shower in this building likes those in Lifetime. You need bring blanket/sleeping bags, pillows, shower towels, and personal toiletry. The cabin has a large meeting room for group activities, e.g., poker games.

The camp has many on site activities such as horseback-riding, shooting, high/low rope courses, climbing wall, fishing, canoeing, camp fire and star-watching. You can bring basketballs and volleyballs. There is a golf course 5 miles from the camp. If you’d like play a 9-hole game in the early morning, bring your clubs. Some activities require prior reservation and an additional fee ($10 to 20 past years), such as horseback riding, hay riding, high/low ropes course, campfire dough-nuts, indoor climbing wall, and riflery (exciting for kids). We can decide these activities the evening of Friday, July 30th.

Please use the form below to sign up. Due to limited capacity and high demand, we will accept applications on first come-first serve base. You may invite your friends.

Thank you. Look forward to enjoying the fun together!
