The Band Boosters operate the concession stand at the camp meeting ground site in Denver each summer. Often refereed to as the “Shack”, the concession stand is open each night during the 2 weeks of camp meetings, usually in August. The stand offers a wide range of food items from hamburgers, to ice cream, milkshakes and candy. This is a one of the most significant fundraisers that the boosters coordinate, and many volunteers are needed to run this event run successfully. For more information or to signup for a night, please contact Tom Francis.
Dates and times of operation:
Fri. 7/26-Sat. 8/10; Mon.-Thurs 5-11, Fri 5-12, Sat 4-12, Sun 4-11
The above hours are serving times. Approximately 1 hour is needed to set up and close. Usually camp attendees are sleeping in the buildings directly behind the Shack while we are cleaning. QUIET PLEASE! We do not want to give anyone reason to complain. We want them to speak highly of us and our respect for them.
