Father-Son Weekend 2013
May 20, 2013 by Don Gentle
What an awesome weekend getting to know new and returning families alike. While the weather was not perfect, the company sure made up for it. Our Father-Son Weekend is perfect for those guys that are coming to camp for the first time or just starting to think about summer camp, but not yet signed up. I sure enjoyed meeting and visiting with all the dads and sons at our sixth annual Father-Son Weekend. The event included more than 50 families families who participated in all sorts of activities.
Our weekend kicked off on Friday afternoon with some time for the guys to find their way around and relax, then it was off to dinner and some great group games to wrap up the night. Saturday was a fun-filled day with all sorts of things to keep the guys busy including riflery and archery, the High Ropes Course, fishing, lake canoeing, disc golf, hiking, tennis, the climbing tower, sailing, a DuPont Forest hike, and several other options to introduce the boys and dads to summer camp. We wrapped up Saturday night with a great campfire, some fun songs and a story told by Dan Noland. We washed it all down with classic s’mores! Sunday was just as fun, although we only had until lunch to get all of our fun in before leaving. What a great weekend!!!
We tried to get a bunch of pictures, but I’m not sure we caught everyone. We sure enjoyed spending time with all of you this past weekend! What a great group of boys with wonderful mentors! Thanks for coming! We kick off the summer in just under three weeks. We will see several of you back for our June Session or later in the summer. Enjoy the rest of the school year; safe travels back to Camp High Rocks!
