Annual Picnic

Presented by


Sunday, October 5th

Camden Park- Milan, Illinois 

(corner of Milan Beltway and US Route 67)

The BBBS Annual Picnic is an annual tradition that brings together matches, families and supporters of mentoring for a day of fun, food, and camarodary!

The event also creates wonderful memories and great stories!  The Big vs. Little kick ball game, Big vs. Little volleyball game, amazing race competition, Big vs. Little pie eating contest are just a few of the fun and games that we have shared over the years. 

This years event promises to deliver another great experience.  We will have converging on Camden Park in Milan, with a full schedule of activities.  We will announce the results of our 100 Bigs/100 Days Campaign, enjoy the delicious local pork donated by Dittmer Farms, specially prepared by local barbaque legend Millage Johnson, Sr.  We will have all the fixings to go with it.  Once we have shared a meal, it will be time to make some memories participating in a number of fun games and activities (some competitive, some just for fun).

Hopefully you'll leave tired, happy, fulfilled and inspired!
