Fridays are the Best

#image_title

Fridays are the Best It is pretty universal that Fridays are going to be a good day. Fridays at camp, however, are a step up in that you have a whole day of activities and trips, you are surrounded by people you know well, and you are heading into the weekend where the schedule changes… Continue reading Fridays are the Best

Tie-Dye Tuesday

Tie-Dye Tuesday Today started with a cool dawn over camp, dry and sunny like so many days before. The wakeup bell cranked out its 7:45 call and man was it answered by all of our Mini II guys now in residence! The excitement of the first full day of camp was obvious from a distance… Continue reading Tie-Dye Tuesday

Fridays at Camp

Fridays at Camp It seemed like the end of the second week came fast. All of a sudden the week was closing out with a beautiful morning, bits of fog rolling across the lake. Sunny skies were already awakening camp by the time the morning bell rang out. There were several people helping with the… Continue reading Fridays at Camp

Tuesdays are Tuff

Tuesdays are Tuff Today was a warm start to the day. Sun shining brightly and just a light breeze to move the few clouds overhead. Like clockwork, the bell tolled out at 7:45 to announce the official start to the day. With this second week cranking though, plenty of folks were already on the move… Continue reading Tuesdays are Tuff

End of the Work Week

End of the Work Week As always in camp life, each day seems an epic adventure while a week goes by in the blink of an eye. Here we are wrapping up the first “work” week of the session and it seemed to catch everyone a bit by surprise! Our morning was a warm one,… Continue reading End of the Work Week

The Adventure Begins

#image_title

The Adventure Begins This morning was a treat, not only hearing the first wake-up bell of the session ring, but also just how cool the day broke over camp. In July, the advantage of living on top of a mountain becomes clear as the temps were in the upper 50s and it took a bit… Continue reading The Adventure Begins

Tuff Tuesday

Tuff Tuesday In what has almost become a foregone conclusion, today was another beautiful, high pressure day in the mountains. I literally have new members of camp asking if it ever rains here, and looking at me skeptically when I say it does! While the plants may be parched, it does make for some very… Continue reading Tuff Tuesday

TGIF (@ Camp!) It is the end of our second “work” week, though that doesn’t mean there was any knocking it off early for our camper crew this Friday! Yet another cool, clear morning with the bell ringing loud to get everyone moving. Breakfast was a southern affair of sausage biscuits, gravy, grits, berries/fruit, yogurt,… Continue reading TGIF (@ Camp!)

Tie-Dye Tuesday

Tie-Dye Tuesday This second Tuesday of the session began with a nice morning coolness and some wisps of fog laying low in the valleys of camp. It is one of my favorite ways to begin a day with all the potential of camp waiting for that bell to kick into gear. The quiet in the… Continue reading Tie-Dye Tuesday

Far-Reaching Friday

#image_title

Far-Reaching Friday While it is hard to believe that we are heading into our first weekend already, our first Friday it was! And yet another gorgeous day in the mountains to boot. The morning routine was smooth with the guys knowing what to do and things becoming more muscle memory now. Which is good as… Continue reading Far-Reaching Friday

Already at Full Speed

#image_title

Already at Full Speed This morning dawned clear and cool. A perfect mountain morning that saw our campers snuggling deep in their blankets right up to the bell before it was time to spring into action. That same morning cool also meant there was an extra spring in their step as they got dressed, made… Continue reading Already at Full Speed
