Sneak Preview - Live Auction Items

Whiskey Tasting Experience

Invite friends for a party of ten (10) at the Waldo home of Michael & Eileen Calabria to learn about the origins and current production of whiskey and distilleries in Ireland and Scotland. Eight premium-aged pot still whiskeys—some which are valued at $100 per bottle!  

 Appetizers and other  beverages are included. According to research, a reservation for this event would average $50 - $100/person.

First Swim!


You and nine of your friends are invited to the first swim at Tall Oaks the week before camp officially opens in 2021.  A lifeguard will be provided. You will be notified a month ahead of time when that week will be.  

The three- hour swim will conclude with hot dogs, potato chips and cookies. 

For an additional cost and depending on guidelines for social gatherings, you may increase the numbers of swimmers attending the event. This might be a great event for the youth in your church, a birthday gathering, or a family event.

Name the Road


Honor a cherished Church friend or family member with “Name the Road” at Tall Oaks.   Their name will be on the sign leading into camp for one year.   What a great way to honor someone who has impacted your church, your family or your life.
