Weekend Activities at Camp Zane

This weekend Camp Zane will be busy with several activities open to Scouts, families and the community:

Saturday, April 29 from Noon to 2:00 PM,  as part of ‘Parks Week’, we’ll have an archery range set up and we’ll be introducing our Archery Trap machine.  Hitting a stationary target is one thing, but hitting a target flying through the air is a whole new level of fun!  Stop on down and test your skills. ‘Parks Week’ is an effort by the Muskingum Valley Park Society to promote outdoor recreation and the Muskingum Valley Parks.

Sunday, April 30, from 2:00 to 5:00 PM Camp Zane will host the C.A.S.S. M.I.N.D. Autism Learning Center Autism Fair-Walk/Run 5k.  With live music, horse rides, games & food, this will be a fun event and, more importantly, it will raise funds to support the Autism Learning Center here in Zanesville.  Teams of 5 walkers participate for a $50 donation, 10 walkers for $100 donation.  Individual walkers for $10.  Teams averaging $20 per person also receive a T-shirt.  Come on down, make a donation and enjoy the afternoon.

Camp Zane:  734 Moorehead Avenue, Zanesville, Ohio
