“If All the Rain Drops Were Lemon Drops and Gum Drops…”

Howdy from a happy Tajar! We spent the morning adventuring in the great outdoors on the Low Ropes Course and at Silver Run Falls where girls swam and hiked! I hopped on the back of the van to venture out of camp for a little while, but as soon as we got to the end of the camp
