This year the South Central chapter, invites you to the 2016 WSGA Summer Campout at Maryhill State Park. Maryhill State Park is a 99-acre camping park with 4,700 feet of waterfront on the Columbia River in Klickitat County. The area is significant for its natural beauty, its access to the surrounding natural wonders and its cultural history. A full-scale model of Stonehenge and art museum stands near the park .

Activities: There are several water activities such as boating, swimming, and freshwater fishing. Other non-water activities include bird watching, horseshoe pit (bring your own horseshoes), beach exploration, wildlife viewing, and several hiking trails.

Who can attend? The Campout is open to everyone, members and non-members alike. Come for a day, or spend the weekend.

Saturday dinner: Join us for the traditional Saturday evening barbecue dinner and potluck. This is the main event, covered by your registration fee. WSGA will provide the hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, and beverages. The rest is potluck, so bring your favorite side dish or dessert to round out the meal. After dinner, we’ll have the annual WSGA general meeting. The WSGA President will give their “State of the Club” address for our members and lead a Q&A session.
