We are pleased to share that Harpers Ferry Road is scheduled to reopen on Saturday, June 26. The project contractor has completed most of their work on our new slope stabilization structure and has also installed new pavement. The contractor is currently in the process of marking the road. Looking to the future, expect periodic single lane closures through the month of July.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on this project.

5K Obstacle Adventure Race
Planning for Fall 2022
Plan to join us for the first 5K Obstacle Adventure race at Manidokan Camp & Retreat Center.
Run competitively for a personal best or with a group of friends or just for fun! A kid size race is available for runners ages 4-11. Runners 12 and older can run the larger obstacle race which includes over 15 obstacles.
Not a runner (or walker) but still want to join in on the fun? Become a volunteer or race sponsor!
Proceeds will benefit our capital campaign for Manidokan development of our new Rustic Camping Area and our annual camp scholarship fund.
