A Maple Syrup Brunch is planned this month at 4-H Camp Palmer. The public is invited between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on March 20 to learn how maple syrup is made, ride on both horse-drawn and tractor-drawn wagons, and feast on a brunch, with real maple syrup (as long as supply lasts) for the pancakes, in the dining hall. Attendees will get a sneak peek of 4-H Camp Palmer’s facilities and main camp.
At noon and 1 p.m., attendees can view a maple syrup history lesson in the Sauder Recreation Hall. They can also view maple trees that have been taped, and see ongoing maple syrup making in the main camp. Some maple syrup products will be available for purchase.
The cost of pancakes, sausage and a drink is $6, and $5 for pancakes and a drink. Ages three and under are free. Proceeds support the pool camp project.
Camp Palmer is located in western Fulton County at 26450 County Road MN in Fayette. For more information, call 419-237-2247 or visit www.camppalmer.org.
