11947943_1147050878656656_8212297407161897566_oParents’ Night is Friday August 19th. The Band will perform (at least a portion of) their 2016 Show, “Cosmic Journey,” for parents and visitors to camp. You are welcome to bring desserts to share at a fellowship time after the performance. (You do not need to bring drinks.) Show shirts & other Salem Band items will be sold at this time.

Please do not arrive at camp before 6pm. The show will start promptly at 7:15pm, and visitors will be asked to leave by 9pm.

Directions to Greenbrier Youth Camp are below.  Please note GPS routes are not always correct.

From Salem, take I-81 North to exit 150B.  Merge onto US 11 South and turn right on 220N.  Go through Clifton Forge and follow signs to get onto I-64 West heading toward Lewisburg, WV.

At the Lewisburg exit (approx. 1.5 hr drive from Salem), turn right onto route 219, and continue for nearly 10 miles.

When you pass an Exxon on the right, followed by a cemetery on the right, you will turn right onto Anthony Road.  Go about 5 miles, and every time you come to a fork, take the downhill option.  When you cross the Greenbrier River, turn left.  The camp will be on your left.
