Popping this back into everyone's inbox. Please support InfoAge with a donation of any amount. 2020 lockdowns greatly impacted their bottom line, and as it has been said before, VCF Mid-Atlantic would not exist as it does today without the support and help from InfoAge. It's time for us to help them out and allow them to continue their amazing mission at the amazing Camp Evans...
I found a series of short videos about Camp Evans, worth watching if you don't know the history of the Camp.

each is under 2min.
