membership is a combination of both men and women. Each year
male members are selected to serve as KingArthur and his Knights
of the Round Table and female members are selected to serve
as Queen Guinevere and her Ladies of the Court. Members of Camelot
enjoy getting together for various parties and events throughout
the year. Each year a different Captain is selected to coordinate
with the Board the festivities of Camelot.
The Arthurian Legend speaks of an English town called Camelot,
where King Arthur was said to have lived and was raised by Merlin
the Magician. He was raised to reign, to be King in this land
called Camelot. King Arthur and his court of knights would meet
at what they called, The Round Table, to celebrate
and discuss the goings on in Camelot. King Arthur and Queen
Guinevere reined over Camelot. Camelot was not only their Kingdom,
Camelot was their home.
Camelot is characterized as a time and place that had high ideals.
It was a place of excitement, of purpose and culture. In this
land, peace reigned and love prevailed. In Camelot all was well
and wonderful, life was grand and good. Camelot is a place where
people would come together to celebrate their prosperity of
wisdom, wealth, health and happiness.
Camelot is the land of magic and wonder, of mystery and mysticism,
of magicians and wizards, of seers and sorcerers, of love and
bounty. It is where the veils of limitation are lifted. Camelot
is a feeling place, a place of feeling gloriously good, and
having good feelings towards all who dwell there. Camelot is
where you take your worries and replace them with wonder. Camelot
means looking forward with anticipation and excitement with
what is sure to come, no matter what has become.
If you thought Camelot was out of reach, or only a figment of
your imagination, you have not touched your hearts home
touchstone. Here you awaken to your abundant successes, the
birthright of all heirs to the family of Royalty. Camelot is
where you bring all YOUR hearts desires home for the having.
Camelot is home, and home is where the heart is.
