Camp Albrecht Acres hosted Harvest Fest on Sunday, October 8th. This fundraiser was an all-day event with live music, craft and food vendors, kids games, pumpkin sales, hayrides, and more! The fundraiser was open to the public, and around 500 guests attended the event. Local music acts included: Bryce Reeg, Loras College Jazz Ensemble, and Kristina Castaneda.
The event drew in funds to be used for campership financial aid through food sales, donations from the vendors in attendance, a $5 per car admission, and meat sales from the Dubuque County Champion Steer. Campership financial aid is aid given to campers who qualify directly from Albrecht Acres. Each year, around 60% of campers apply for financial aid. Thanks to events like Harvest Fest, and our generous community, Camp Albrecht Acres is proud to state that we have never turned a camper away based on financial need.
Thank you to our guests, vendors, musicians, and volunteers!
