What a beautiful day in camp! It was still a little warm, but the breeze lasting throughout the day made it wonderful! Most everyone was in camp today. We still had a beginner French Broad float trip this morning, and a make-up Illahee tennis event this afternoon, but mostly we just enjoyed our wonderful 1100 acres of fun today.
We said goodbye to our Mini I campers this morning. After two weeks of pure screaming fun, they were reunited with their parents and had a ton of great stories to tell. Our Mini II’s come in on Monday. We are so excited to see them. The barn had a series of games on horseback today, which they call Gymkahna. The boys had a lot of fun; check out the pictures. Mountain biking decorated themselves with some fake tattoos and road around on their bikes for Harley Day. Our camper/counselor tennis tournament had several matches today. Zoob and her partner went down after a long fought battle. The bracket continues…
We wrapped up our wonderful Saturday square dancing with Camp Illahee! I had the youngest boys follow me to Illahee, while the oldest half of campers stayed here to meet up with the oldest girls. It was a lot of fun in both locations; what a fine group of gentlemen and ladies Sorry the pictures are so late tonight. I just got back from Illahee and got the boys to bed.
Enjoy some incredible pictures from Brian Hamm, Alex Gregor, and Blair Cannon. You’ll see some great shots from our “Retirement Home” Bingo. Many of the campers and staff got into costume again, trying to look a little aged. There are also a couple great shots of Zoob and myself as “celebrity riders” down at the barn. We were both selected as guest riders for the day on Friday. We also captured a few shots from last night’s “Skit Night” event.
