June at Camp Frances

Unfortunately at this time we have to keep camp closed for the entire month of June. We hope this allows folks to make thier plans ahead of time.

We are all up in the air about the future and what things will look like in another month but we remain cautiously optimistic and ask folks to do the same.

We are all in this together. ❤❤


Being shutdown for the last 2 months has been difficult for everyone including Camp Frances, now more then ever, Camp Frances needs your support. A donation of any amount can help so much. Please consider helping us, we are your local non-profit organization. 100% of all donations go directly back in to Camp Frances for upkeep, improvements and our monthly bills.

June Reservations

At Camp Frances, we understand that these are uncertain times and none of us like the feeling of plans being up in the air. We are remaining cautiously optimistic that reservations for June are still a go.

As June gets closer we will monitor the directives given to us by authorities as far as group gatherings go. Things may need to be revised, we hope to have more information as June draws closer.

If you are wondering about available dates in June, please drop us an email at friendsofcampfrances@gmail.com with your inquiry and we will follow up with you at a later date.

Thank you for your understanding as we go through this together.
