We will have a fun PADDLE AUCTION again this year instead of a silent auction so bring your quarters or purchase them Saturday night at the registration table.  For this event, we will be auctioning BASKETS so if you would like to put one together for us or donate an item, please bring it along...see rules below!

Stay tuned for more to come!

Jill Laidlaw, our Camp Director, is always ready to share her outdoor activities, nature walks, experiential night hikes, and more. Jill does a wonderful job of introducing people to new experiences. Spend time with her and you will find yourself climbing a tree, exploring a stream, or paddling a kayak! Bring extra clothes or rain pants if you would like to KAYAK with us.  The paddle will drip water into your lap.

Jeanne Lilienthal will help anyone who brings fleece material to create a knotted blanket. Jeanne has created 100’s of her blankets and shared them with friends who are in need of the warmth and love that they bring.

B.J. Morrison will offer QUICK WAYS TO REDUCE STRESS. For more years then we can count, B.J. has been volunteering her time to organize our Women's’ Weekend! Her time and effort have given it the special touches that make it so wonderful! Each year she pulls together a great crew of volunteers who come and give their time and effort to share their talents and skills. Please join us in thanking B.J.!

What's Quarter Paddle Auction?
A quarter auction is part raffle, part auction, part fundraiser party. It works a bit like bingo. When you arrive, you will be given a numbered paddle for a donation. This paddle will have a corresponding number which will be put into the drawing basket.
You can purchase a second paddle or more for a donation, if you wish.
Each time an item comes up for bid that you choose to take a chance and bid on, you will place the required number of your quarters for each paddle being played, in a container on your table then hold your paddle(s) in the air. Bid amounts vary according to the price of the product being auctioned:
Product Value Range with Quarter Bid Amount
$10-$24 = 1 Quarter
$25-$40 = 2 Quarters
$41-$60 = 3 Quarters
$61+ = 4 Quarters
When all bids are closed, and the quarters have been collected, a number will be drawn from the container of numbers and the person whose paddle number matches the one called is the winner. If you did not bid on this particular item (leaving your paddle face down on the table) AND your number is called, you simply yell out “NO BID”. Then another number can be drawn to get a winner. After a winner is confirmed, they will move on to the next item.
Extra paddles may also be purchased if you choose to have better odds at winning particular items. (ex. an item is a 1 quarter bid - you have 2 paddles and want 2 chances to win that item – you simply put two bids in your table’s container of .50 cents and then put BOTH paddles in the air.)

ALL you need now is LOTS of Quarters to have LOTS of FUN!!!!


Come have a Great Time at Camp Cavell!
