Wish Night

Today was our last full day of activities.  We still had several trips a river canoe to the French Broad, the high ropes course, and two mountain bike trips in camp where the guys were able to ride several trails all morning or all afternoon.  Finally, the rock climbers were out all day at Cedar Rock. The sun was shining nearly the whole day, which made for a lot of fun and excitement. 

Tonight, we all had some fun with our age groups for the evening program. As we wrapped up the individual events around 8:30, everyone headed over to our cabin field for a special “wish night” by the lake. A quiet moment where we focus on the four cardinal points that guide us every day; Adventure, Respect, Individual, and Community.

Tomorrow is LAUNCH DAY for our rocketry classes. Be sure to check out the pictures tomorrow for that. Then the transition begins. We will wrap up activities in the morning, and then begin the process of finding all our stuff and packing up during rest hour.  The rest of our afternoon will be a super fun all-camp End Game event. Finally, we head back to shower, then enjoy our final banquet followed by the last campfire of the summer.

As a reminder, closing day is on Saturday.  Please come around 9:15 am and the staff will direct you where to park.  If you still need to talk to Darby about shipping your trunk home, let us know and check back on the blog post from Monday (8/1) for details.

I will put up one more post tomorrow night with some final pictures of the session and what to think about on the closing day and the ride home.  I look forward to a quick hello on closing day, Saturday! Look for Zoob and me near the tennis courts after you park.  Safe travels.

All the best,

Don Gentle
