Held on Thanksgiving morning, the Turkey Chase is our largest fundraiser and most buzzed about event every year! Each year we hold a 10Km and 5km race through our beautiful property with all proceeds helping to send deserving children and young adults to overnight and day camp programs here at Camp Letts.

Turkey chase is truly a family event with activities for everyone throughout the morning. Have your picture taken with our Turkey at the Photo both, Kids can race against him in our Mascot Race before the 5km run. Don'f forget ours is the only run in the area where the Turkey takes part in the whole race!
