Yeah, we were afraid we'd fill up. Camp Newman had a capacity of 600. I think we got to 300 a few nights when we were there, but averaged about 250. The capacity of Camp Monte Toyon is 146.
I'm thinking the first night to fill up will be New Year's Eve, December 31. There may be open days earlier in the week.
I don't think Camp Newman will be rebuilt in time for our 2018-2019 camp. but maybe the next year - but it could be that we will find a large-enough camp foir 2018-19, since we have a year to look. We found Monte Toyon in about two weeks, and then took another couple weeks to work out the details. I think we did pretty well, given our short deadline.
We're sure going to miss Camp Newman. I hope to be able to drive to Newman in the spring and get an idea of the fire damage for myself.
