Hillbilly Jamboree 2018

The campground was invaded by The ACCA Hillbillies this past weekend to help raise money for the Shriners Hospitals for Children, bringing with them all kinds of fun and games!

Friday night got started out with hungry hillbillies chowing down on some delicious food served buffet style by The Acres Eatery. Everything was delicious!

Once everybody got their bellies full, campers gathered under the pavilion for a fun game on Hillbilly BINGO! Cards cost $1.00 each and all proceeds went to the Children’s Hospital. Of course, there were prizes to be won if you hollered “YEE-HAW” though!!

On Saturday morning we had a Cornhole Tournament were campers battled it out to see who would come out victorious! The Hillbillies made their appearance, selling raffle tickets for a Pelican Cooler & Tumbler Set that would be given away later in the night.

The children had so much fun making turtles during our Kids Craft Hour. They even got to play a game of Freeze Tag for a little bit while waiting on some paint to dry!

Did somebody say water fight? That’s right! There was an Hour-Long Campground Water Fight right in the middle of the day!! Everybody geared up with their shooting apparatuses and got busy soaking any and every person that came by without a “NO WATER ZONE” sign on. IT WAS A BLAST!!!!

Kids gathered around as Steve the Pirate joined us making all our favorite balloon pets. He could make almost anything you asked for!!

Campers were able to take their chance on some classic carnival games later in the day, helping to raise even more money for the Shriners organization. Thank you, Santa, for stopping by to take pictures with us!

Talk about some PURTY Hillbillies!! Whew! There was so many walking around we had a Beauty Pageant to see who was the best dressed!

Jeff Brown played some funky tunes as everybody got down on the dance floor! The awards for Best Hillbilly Campsites were given out with the Huffman Family coming in 1st place! Second place went to the Schuler Family and 3rd place went to the Shay Family. The raffle drawing for the Pelican Cooler & Tumbler Set was also drawn later in that night. Congrats to the winner!!

On Sunday morning Theresa Moore delivered an amazing message titled “Help Wanted”. Thank you to Ronda, Papa, Lester and Taylor for your beautiful music.

What a fun weekend it was helping raise money for such a good cause. Thank you to everyone who came, participated, and donated. With your help, together we raised $4,000 for the Shriners Hospitals for Children!
