MWROC Facebook Group – Join the Party!
Be sure to join the MWROC FB Group – it’s become a gathering place for MWROC’ers past and present and stays active all year long. It’s a closed group and only people allowed are campers, parents, faculty, and staff. We’re very careful about who we approve so it’s a safe space to connect with your new MWROC friends!
We’re also all over social media:
