You are invited to the Camp Long Dessert Auction & Coffeehouse Concert Fundraiser, 6:30 to 9 pm on Saturday, September 22nd. (The entrance to the 68-acre park is at 5200 35th SW.)
This event will also celebrate completion of the new “Hub and Spoke” element, phase 2 of Camp Long’s Ropes Challenge Course installation. Attendees can explore the Hub and Spoke on the Challenge Course from the ground, and purchase raffle tickets for a chance to be the first to explore the Hub and Spoke element in the air. Here’s how Camp Long describes it:
The Hub and Spoke element is both physically and mentally challenging, consisting of high platforms, interconnected activities, routes on slim beams, wobbly steps, and swings and ropes to clutch or walk on. Trained facilitators lead participants, always harnessed in safety equipment, through the course … A hub and spoke course is built like a wheel; activities radiate from a center hub with a large platform to the outside poles, which are then connected together by other activities.
Phase 1 of the Challenge Course was officially dedicated and opened with a celebration in September of last year. The Sept. 22 event is $10; raffle tickets will be on sale the entire evening, while homemade and local-business-made desserts are auctioned and local musicians play.
