The Maine Elks Association MCCP/FORKS Steering Committee would like thank everyone that attended, donated or volunteered at our 3rd Annual Camping Weekend in the Forks, held from August 25th to the 27th at Three Rivers Whitewater in The Forks.

Incredible work by all Lodges on the Silent & Live Auctions! Collectively, we raised just over $24,000.00!!! The Augusta Elks took top honors with $3,462.00 fr their items. Second place was Waterville with $3,187.00 and with $3,076.00 Gardiner was third.

More than 250 Elks, representing 18 of our 20 Maine Lodges from across the state attended.  It was an incredible weekend of fun and camaraderie, as we worked together towards the common goal of raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for our major state project, the Maine Children’s Cancer Program.


The Steering Committee, including representatives from many of our lodges, worked year-round planning and organizing this large off-site event.  Everyone who came worked well together to ensure that this event was a huge success.  Without their commitment and dedication, an event of this magnitude would not be possible.  Collectively, over the three-day weekend Maine Lodges raised $61,221.73 for MCCP.

Congratulations and Thank You for your support!

Mark your calendars and Save the Date, for next year’s event, Thursday, August 22nd to Sunday, August 25, 2024
