We are excited to be back in the Fredericksburg Marktplatz this year while also hosting some virtual events as part of this year’s fundraiser! Check out how you can be involved in raising funds and sharing many more years of camp to come!
Ways you can get involved:
Virtual 5K Run/Walk – Join us in kicking off our Fall Festival by signing up for our Virtual 5K. You will have till September 15th to run or walk and submit your best time!
Cornhole Tournament – Making its Fall Festival debut is our first ever Cornhole Tournament! We are looking for youth teams, adult teams, and inter-generational teams to compete in this event. The tournament will take place at our Fall Festival day event in the Fredericksburg Marktplatz beginning at 10am with the last round of competition beginning at 2:30pm. Winners of each division will be announced and awarded prizes. Registration closes September 10th.
Be a Sponsor – We are still looking for sponsors to help support this annual event to help us raise funds for the future of camping ministry! If you, your congregation, your business, or your organization are interested in helping us keep even costs low, please fill out the form! You will be features on all our web and social media platforms, on our 5K shirts, printed publications, and more.
Be a Craft Vendor – Our craft fair is BACK! If you are a craft vendor that is interested in participating, sign up today! Spaces are limited and will be booked on a first come, first served basis. Registration for our craft vendors will close September 10th.
Donate a Quilt – This year we are hosting an online and in-person quilt auction! We are looking for folks to donate quilts to be bid on and auctioned off. Once quilts are in, they will be showcased online and at the Fall Festival event in Fredericksburg. We would love for anyone interested in donating a quilt to fill out this form. We are taking quilt donations till August 31st.
Be a Volunteer – We are looking for volunteers to help in several areas of the in person event like helping with carnival games, taking pictures, checking in with guests, and more! If this might be something you, a group of friends, or a church group might be interested in, please sign up or let us know if you have any questions.
Virtual Cook-Off – The chili cook-off has been one of the longstanding traditions and highlights of our Fall Festival. This year, we would love for congregations or individuals to host a meal or cook-off on your church campus of your liking and collect an offering that can be given toward our festival fundraising. Whether it’s pancakes, spaghetti, or chili, cook-offs bring some fun and yum! Contact the Cross Trails office to let us know your intentions to participate or if you have any questions. Don’t forget to share pictures with us!
Gift Card Wheel Donation – We would love for you to be part of our event even if you can’t attend in person. One more way to do that in addition to the Virtual 5K and Virtual Cook-Off is to consider donating to our Gift Card Wheel for our in-person event. Click the link and choose a gift card and monetary denomination you would like to include. We are collecting these donations till September 10th and appreciate your participation in this year’s festivities!
