December 1 through December 4, three and four day options.
Come to Camp Susque for a weekend of scrapbooking, fellowship, and relaxation!
This retreat will be held just in time to complete your Christmas scrapbook gifts or finally finish that project that's been lingering for some time.
Scrap throughout the day in front of the fireplace in Susque's Hemlock Hall, and then stay overnight in one of Susque's warm and cozy lodges. Get to know fellow scrapbookers while eating delicious meals, desserts, and snacks, and let Susque staff take care of the cooking and cleaning.
