2nd Annual Spirit of Community Weekend

by Spriggan Radfae on March 17, 2017

The Mid Atlantic Area is hosting its 2nd annual MAA Spirit of Community Weekend at Claymont Court, and YOU ARE INVITED. The weekend will be held March 23-26, 2017. All of the currently available details are listed below, including a PDF of our schedule.

This year we are creating more break time to give men the opportunity to connect.

Please note: this weekend is open to ALL MEN, not just initiated brothers. So start thinking about whom you can invite.


Friday, March 23 through Sunday, March 26, 2017

The weekend officially begins at 5pm Friday; the weekend ends around 2pm Sunday

Claymont will have “work for credit” opportunities on Friday, so if you want to work on projects to offset MAA’s commitment to CC you are welcome to arrive on Thursday night or Friday morning. Please contact Tim Chumley (mkp@timchumley.com) if you intend on arriving early.

Our Friday night meal will be a potluck dinner. Please bring a dish to feed six men. On Saturday, breakfast, lunch, dinner and ice cream will be served. Sunday, breakfast and lunch.

We encourage men to make a $30 contribution to help with the costs of the Spirit Weekend. You are welcome to contribute more or less — whatever fits for you. This is convenient to do through the online donation form, or you can bring cash or check to the weekend.

The link to the donation form is:

On the form, use the drop down menus for “Select *” and pick “Mid Atlantic – MKP USA Area” then for “Select Contribution Type *”, pick “Spirit of Community Weekend”

There will be a Purification and Renewal Ceremony (sweat lodge) on Saturday afternoon, 5:15 pm. Make sure you bring shorts to wear in the Lodge, and an extra towel.

We will have a Drumming Circle on Saturday night, so bring your drum.

Men are invited to arrive early on Friday and participate in work projects. These projects contribute to our working relationship with Claymont Court. Men can arrive as early as 10. Lunch will be served. Please email Tim Chumley (tim@timchumley.com) if you plan on working at Claymont.

Claymont provides a blanket and pillow. Please bring your own bedding, plus a towel and clothing appropriate for a sweat lodge or sauna. Bring your talisman and a flashlight. Also, bring a sacred object to place on the Sacred Objects Table is you want.

Please contact Tim Chumley (804-519-2810 or mkp@timchumley.com) with general questions about the weekend.
