Wow. Huge thanks to all of you who came out to the 4th Annual Great Escape! We are simply blown away by your enthusiasm, generosity and all around awesomeness. You raised a record-breaking $15,000 in support of environmental education for young people in our community.
What a night it was! By the looks of it, you had an absolute blast at our one-night-only summer camp for adults. We know we did!
Tasked with completing a list of challenges in order to earn a camp badge, guest 'campers' explored FortWhyte Alive, participating in child-like fun along the way. Attendees were treated to a night of traditional summer camp activities – axe throwing, archery, crafting, face painting and more.
We owe a giant thank you to our bar sponsor Lake of the Woods Brewery for their support, and for bringing the craft brews to kick this summer camp up a notch. We were thrilled to have event partners Playworld Fun Rentals, Lumberjax Axe Throwing, Cabela's, Archers and Bowhunters Association of Manitoba, Skyzone Winnipeg, Bothwell Cheese and Aschenti Cocoa for creating some amazing activity stations. A shout out to our amazing raffle prizes provided by our friends at Falcon Trails Resort and Coal and Canary, just to name a few.
Our thanks to FortWhyte Alive volunteers for their efforts in pulling off this one-night-only summer camp event. We couldn't do it without you!
And last but certainly not least, there wouldn't be a summer camp for adults without our super enthusiastic campers, competing for camp badges, and posting hilarious photos along the way.
Thank you for doing good in our community — funds raised support environmental education programs for Manitoba students. THANK YOU!
