It was another beautiful sunny day at camp. The temperature was a bit higher than usual for us here at camp so it was filled with lots of time in the lake and a surprise afternoon rootbeer float treat! The word spread like wildfire at camp once the first camper got wind of the concession stand that was serving up rootbeer floats by the tennis courts.
We had quite a few trips out today again the most experienced paddlers went to the Ocoee for a day of big water paddling. There was another group out on the Tuckaseegee River today. Climbers headed out to Horseshoe Rock and another group to Cedar Rock. One two-day hike headed out today to the Turkey Pen area in Pisgah and another two-day hike returned from the Sam’s Knob area of Pisgah. Mountain bikers headed out this afternoon to DuPont for an afternoon ride. A group of campers got to experience caving today in Worley’s cave where the proceeded to get dirtier than anyone ever should but of course had a great time doing it! All of these trips in addition to activities in camp. Needless to say- a very active and busy day here at High Rocks!
The Senior age group, Windswept and Outpost cabins, had the perfect evening activity for a warm day with Sliding Rock and a trip to Dolly’s (our locally famous ice cream stand). They were not disappointed to find some lovely ladies from Illahee at Sliding Rock with the same idea. The younger campers enjoyed a night of Ol’ Timers Bingo complete with powdered hair, canes, spectacles and other over the top costumes. Prizes were awarded for creativity in costumes as well as Bingo. It has been a new addition this year to evening program and is a BIG hit!
