A Fund Raising event for the Scandia Volunteer Fire Department

Place: Red Oak Campground, 225 Russell PA 16345

Time: 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Friday, May 11th
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Sat. May 12th
(You may come to carve as early as May 5th)

Description: What is liked about our event: It’s not a competition. It is far more enjoyable and can be better described as the annual Carver Family reunion! There are quick carves + sponsor carves. The atmosphere is far more laid back, everyone is in the same area, and visiting old friends throughout the day is easy. You actually have time to go around and watch or learn from other carvers. Then we all have dinner together in the Pavilion.

There will be a quick carve demonstration on Friday at 5:00 PM and 1 on Saturday at 10:00 AM. (Carvers receive $75 + 50% of Auction price)
Please register by Mar 15th to qualify for a $150 sponsor carves. An auction of carvings will be held on Saturday at 2:00 PM. All carvers are expected to donate a minimum of 3 finished carvings to the auction. Auction is a 50/50 split between the carvers and Scandia VFD. Cash prizes will be awarded to the carvers with highest total taken in from auction pieces.
Dinner will be provided Thursday and Friday night for the carvers and 1 guest. Additional dinner guest - $5.00. A $3.00 pancake breakfast will be served Friday + Saturday mornings. The Scandia VFD will provide a snack + lunch to each carver and 1 guest on Saturday.
We are offering the 50% discounts on cabin rentals as in past years and Joe at Deep Wood Vacation Home Rentals is extending a discount as well. If you are camping on your site this year, there will be no charge. We look forward another great event. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (814) 757-8507 or via email at
