What an Awesome Fall LEAP Season!
October 16, 2011 by Don Gentle
Holy Cow! What a busy fall!
First of all, I’d like to just tell everybody how BEAUTIFUL it has been at camp! We’ve got the leaves changing, and the view around the lake is just amazing. Also, here and there we are getting days of a perfect 75 degrees along with nice and chilly nights. There’s just something special about wearing a t-shirt during the day and still enjoying a fire at home at night.
The folks here at High Rocks have been going in all different directions! Hank and Townsend have been traveling in Virginia and eastern North Carolina. Don and Zoob have been all around Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia. Woody has already been to Charleston and also done some rounds down in Texas. It has been really great for everybody to catch up with camp families and meet some new folks too – it’s an exciting time of year when we start planning for the next summer!
We’ve just finished up our last LEAP group of the fall. It’s always sad when the last group leaves… camp is so different when there aren’t any kids here. We’ve been getting camp ready for the winter – the maintenance fellas have been hard at work winterizing the cabins, blowing leaves like crazy, and even taking down our waterslide (don’t worry – it’ll go up again in the spring). While the winter brings on a whole new feel to camp, it’s always just good to slow down a little bit, put on the thinking caps for next year, and get prepared for the spring, summer, and fall once again.
We hope that everybody is having a great fall, that school is going well and that you’re thinking fondly of camp. We miss you and can’t wait to see you again!
