         MESSAGE FOR PARENTS
         OF OUR WOODMEN RANGERS
         Dear Parents:

         Chances are, if you or someone you know has attended a Woodmen summer camp
         during the last 24 years, I was there. Hello parents, my name is Marty Faircloth and I
         am the Director of the Woodmen Youth Camp. Please allow your child to come grow
         with us. Our staff is dedicated to serving our members and will work hard to see that
         your child is kept safe and healthy, and to have lots of FUN at camp this summer.

         This is your child's invitation for a week of making new friends and having lots
         of fun. Camp can be a fun and positive experience for your child. I am asking for
         the opportunity to help you help your child grow through a safe and wholesome
         camping experience, the chance to learn some outdoor skills and enjoy learning new
         things at summer camp.

         The activities your child will participate in are archery, canoeing, paddle boating,
         swimming, talent show, and arts and crafts. There will be lots of team events that will
         give your child a chance to work with others and grow in ways that will help them
         through life.

         See you at camp,
         Marty Faircloth
         Florida North Camp Director


         STATE MANAGER'S MESSAGE:
         Dear Camper:
         Our Fraternal Coordinator/Camp Director Marty Faircloth and his staff are ready to
         greet you and are working hard to make our 2009 camping season a FANTASTIC
         EXPERIENCE just FOR YOU. THIS WILL BE AN EVENT YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS.
         Make plans now with your parents to attend a fun-filled week at Woodmen Summer
         Camp and come ready to make new friends and have lots of FUN. For additional
         information about our camp along with pictures from previous camps and

ATTENTION PARENTS AND CAMPERS!
WE HAVE A VERY EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT! This summer you can invite a Buddy to come with you to camp. Our camp has
been for Woodmen of the World members ages 8 - 15 only. This summer you can invite a Buddy who is age 8 - 15 and not a
Woodmen of the World member to come with you. Our goal is to reach as many young people as we can to share in the FUN and
EXCITEMENT OF WOODMEN OF THE WORLD SUMMER CAMP.

Discuss this with your child and then get together with your Buddy's parents and see if they will allow them to attend
Summer Camp with you. The registration process and form will be the same as a Woodmen of the World member, the fee
for your Buddy will be $200.00. We would like for the Buddy's registration to be sent in with your child's registration,
if this is not possible please share the mailing instructions with them and a note that they will be attending as your
child's Buddy so that we will be sure who they will be attending with. You can visit our Camp website to get copies
of the registration form, woodmencamp.org, click on contact and then click on registration or you can make a
copy of the form you receive.

One of the many privileges of being a Woodmen of the World member is the reduced cost of our summer
camp for your child which is currently just $50.00. Woodmen of the World has many products that your
child could benefit from both now and through out their life. If you wish to find out more about your
child's Buddy becoming a Woodmen of the World member, please contact me and I will put you in
touch with one of our area representatives.

For more additional information please contact:
