The Best Place To Be

Holy Cow! I know we say this everyday – but it was another busy day! Our horseback riding program started off the morning by taking a bunch of kids to a nearby horse show – they were back by lunch and definitely had a great time. Canoeing also took an afternoon trip to the French Broad, which is a fun short trip for all of the guys. All of the other programs stayed in camp today. It was pirate day at the climbing tower (which is always a big, and wet, day), in-camp canoers were building forts out of their canoes and paddling them around the lake and all the other activities were jazzing things up a bit as well.
Sometimes I can’t help but wish I got to be a camper… It seems like it would be such a great time to spend my days doing activities I really love, getting better at different skills with daily practice, and getting to experience all of the fun games and events that the counselors are coming up with. I know, I know – I’m lucky enough just to have a job here! So basically, I guess I’m saying it sure is an awesome place to be here at High Rocks!
So, in the spirit of wishing I could be a camper, I’d like to shout out to all the moms out there, who I think might feel the same way I do. As you may know, High Rocks is hosting its first ever Mothers on the Mountain Weekend (in other words, Mom Camp) September 16 – 18th this year. It’s going to be a super-fun weekend with camp activities and the opportunity to get to know other camp moms. It’s open to all High Rocks moms, and we’d also love for any mom who’s scoping out High Rocks for her son to come and check it out too. There’s no better way to get to know camp than to actually spend a couple days here! You can see more about the weekend at www.highrocks.com/camp/mom.html, and we’ll be sending more information in the mail this week.
There are some incredible pictures of all the guys finding ways to beat the heat. I hope everyone is having beautiful weather and enjoying their late-July days, I know we are!
