The month of February is fairly quiet out at Camp Chi Rho! Currently the first weekend of February sees a father/son retreat returning for their third year. An active group that gets out to fish, play broomball, sled and skate. Now we just got to hope for snow out here in Annandale. We didn't get a lick of the great snow the cities received the other day and many areas are to the grass out around here. Happy February! David Helm Camp Manager Camp Chi Rho Events Center
