Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Sundays are the best days in camp because we get to go on so many field trips (weather permitting), eat fried chicken (a classic), have a beautiful Chapel service, and have Cookout and Campfire in the same night! Oh, not to mention, we wake up to quiche and cinnamon rolls…talk

Dodge Ball and Sunshine

The beautiful weather continues here in the mountains!  It was gorgeous again and made for a great day to be swimming, boating, and spending time on and in the water.  The 2019 Would-Bes were seen perfecting their skills and I watched intently from the roof of Lily Pad in hopes

Ice Cream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!

What a day! The Would Bes took on High Ropes together, Mountaineering went on a hike and did the Climbing Wall, Riding took a trail ride, the warm sun made for an extra nice day on the docks, and Advanced Costuming is on their way to making the best “1776” costumes ever! Down at

Comfy and So Ko Zee

Movie Night means popcorn and PJs (and Skittles if you have braces!) and relaxing with your favorite gal pals. It’s one of the best ways to unwind after a full day at camp! Speaking of today…it was Pizza Thursday! The JCs made extra cheesy, extra yummy, and, I bet, extra healthy

What word describes bright colors, a fun time, and dance parties like you’ve never seen before? Bingo! You guessed it! In case it wasn’t obvious yet, tonight’s Evening Program was Bingo! We dressed in our brights and tights and gave a youthful twist to the notoriously senior

And Sold!

On this terrific Tuesday, camp was abuzz with activities left and right! Some avid hikers headed out with Mountaineering for a full day adventure on Maidenhair Falls, and another group did a half day slip and slide at Grimshaws! Although we’ve only been here a few days, it feels

Warm Welcomes

That pretty blue sky above did not shy away from letting us bask in its glory today! We absorbed the sun’s warm rays on the first real day of Main Session 2019! We are so very thankful to have the session start off on such a beautiful note. That being said, here’s a quick recap

Hip Hip Hooray for Opening Day!

I rarely wake up before 4:30 in the morning, but Opening Day is always the exception! I thought I’d be the first soul in line, but no, Main Session has out done me again! The Merrie-Woode tailgate at the crack of dawn never ceases to amaze me. The whispers and screams, the

Gone to Carolina…

Today was the final day of June Session and a somber sense could be felt throughout camp despite the hustle and bustle of packing, recognitions, awards, and Final Shows. The recognitions began this morning in Chastle (Castle in Chapel), where swimmers, archers, tennis players,

It’s Just Goodnight and Not Goodbye

Oops! Sometimes Tajar and technology aren’t in sync, which explains why in today’s pictures, there are a lot of Sunday Activity pictures. Those sadly got left behind when I uploaded the Sunday pictures. Please forgive my mistake, they’re here now! Bum’s Rest played a prank on all
