Cabin Night

Pictures from June 29, 2011  (password required)

Watching the sunset from an amazing campsite in High Pisgah. The 3-day had an awesome experience!

 Today was the last full day of activities.  It was still a jam packed day with one last caving trip, two rock climbing trips, a Green River trip, and an all-day hike!  It sure has been an incredible session.  Tonight is cabin night, a final night for cabin group activities and a time to look back over the accomplishments made during the session.  What a session they have had.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you on Friday morning. You are welcome to bring family and friends – we make plenty of lunch to cover guests that aren’t in our original count. If you know of anyone that is interested in a camp session for their son, they are also welcome to join us & see what we are all about firsthand.

Remember, the guys will be ready to see you about 9:45am, please do not plan to arrive until after 9:15am when we have staff in place to load trunks. The campers will be singing all of their favorite songs in assembly that morning until about 9:40. After you stop by the gym and get your son’s trunk loaded you will park in campfire field. You can then meet up with your son after assembly ends. He can show you around his activities and demonstrate the skills he learned throughout the session.

Lunch will be served for everyone beginning around 11:30am, but feel free to continue visiting with your son’s counselors and friends. Be sure to catch up with your son’s counselor and stop by the cabin to get any belongings that did not get into the trunk.  On your way out, don’t forget to check in at the office to pick up your son’s envelope with cabin pictures, store account refund (hopefully!), and other important items. Also be sure to check out the picture tree- if you see a picture with your son in it, feel free to take it home.

Today will be the last day of pictures; I hope you have enjoyed viewing them through the session.  If you would like a high-quality version of these pictures we will have extra thumb drives with all of the pictures from the session for sale, even if you didn’t preorder one.

I have to take a moment to highlight the “Crate Stacking Day” at the tower.  The event involves a bunch of milk crates, harness, helmet, rope, belayer, and a whole bunch of balance and poise.  The hardest part is adding the next crate while you are standing on top of the previous one.  You have to sort of work yourself to the side and balance while you add the next crate, all while keeping the stack from tipping.  Kinda nuts!

Ready for another one, Jack?

Didn't quite get to 25, but still an amzing feat!

Camp is so much fun! I have really enjoyed getting to know your sons.  Thanks for sharing!

See you in a few days,

Don Gentle
