Baco Che-Na-Wah Bake Off

With Thanksgiving around the corner, we have baking on our minds.  Still thinking about s’mores too.

But with Thanksgiving being a holiday that you spend with family around the dinner table, we can’t help but think about our camp family, and our favorite meals spent around the tables in the dining rooms at camp.

Nothing says happy campers like Terri’s Banana Bread.

Even Becky said so!!

Thats why she sent us Terri’s Banana Bread recipe to share with our camp families for this Thanksgiving Holiday.

But not without a challenge…

We challenge you to the Camps Baco and Che-Na-Wah Banana Bread Bake Off!!


Spend some extra time with your family (or camp friends) and make Terri’s Banana Bread.

Take a picture of the process, the finished product, or the happy faces eating it, and post on Instagram or Facebook using the hashtags #TerrisBananaBread and #BacoChenawah, or email to if your accounts are private.  If you submit a picture, you will be entered into a raffle to win an EXCLUSIVE BACO/CHE-NA-WAH APRON.



The raffle winner will be chosen on December 1.

Anyone can participate.  Alumni, campers, staff, or parents can win!

Let the baking begin!!!
