Spring Break Week 2024

Thanks to everyone who came out during Spring Break this spring to work and play. We had a number of successful projects thanks to the leadership of Jason Woodcock, Annie Elliot, Chip & Cathy Davis and more. 

We also enjoyed evening guest speakers like Rufus Ward, Charlie Belote, and Richard Lawrence who told us stories of old which have made Camp Bratton Green so special!
