Today at camp started off very strong with a fan favorite morning meal, geometry
breakfast: sausage, hash browns, biscuits and eggs. What more could you want? After
breakfast a couple adventure activity trips went out to experience climbing rocks and trails in the
incredible North Carolina Mountains. Participating in the climbing trip was Annabeth M., Cam
P., Julianne A., Caroline B., Heidi B., Katie J., Laureen D. and Caroline R. On the mountain
biking trip included Shealy H.. Sylvie L., Andrea B., Scarlett I., Ellie P., Charlotte C., Caroline
C., Rebecca S., and Maggie V. We are proud of these girls’ adventurous spirits.
It was a beautiful morning to be on the dock. Callan W. earned her bronze in diving and
Emerson M. worked toward her silver. Diving is one of the most fun classes at camp to watch
and it is awesome to see these girls enhancing their skills.
At lunch we sang tribe songs and announced evening activity… El Presidente!! In this
game, each tribe chooses a president and several generals and must protect them from being
caught while they go after those high point players of the other tribes. The good times kept
rolling into the afternoon with a counselor/camper pickleball tournament during free time-
pickleball is a camp favorite this summer. Blue Heaven counselor Meg S. and camper Nora F.
took home the win and bragging rights.
The sun shined into third and fourth period while Mary Mattison P. and Carlin B.
learned Wagon Wheel in guitar and Brooke B. helped teach the class to work towards her gold.
In DIY crafts, Claire H., Louise M. and Emery F. got creative and colored still lives and jazzed
up their DIY journals with lots of color and patterns.
While we’re not in activities at camp, we spend a lot of time in our cabins and with our
cabin mates. Charlotte O. said about her cabin, Rainbow, “We’re all really close. Everyone is
there for each other and you just make eighteen best friends in the span of two hours. It’s really
Charlotte is right, the relationships we make here are really cool and really special and
I’m grateful everyday to be a part of them.
From this wonderful haven,
