Closing Day D Session

Dear Parents & Friends,

What a great session we just completed today for those of you that picked up your children for D.  Thank you for sharing your children with us this past 13 days.  We’ve had a wonderful session and it was evident as we held our closing for Session D Friendship Campfire last night.  It’s been a beautiful and warm day here and we couldn’t have asked for more.

Soon you will receive an evaluation via email, sent to you by the camp and we hope you will take the time to fill it out and send it back.  This provides us with feed back to help make our program better.  The eval will come through a service called Constant Contact.  They will not solicit you in any way and you get only one correspondence from them.  We use their services and design the form here at camp.  We appreciate you taking the time to help us keep Gwynn Valley an outstanding program.

As our D Session campers left today we still have Mountainside and Riverside here at camp.  Mountainside is taking a few days off before they head out on their big adventures.  Riverside returns today from their paddling component and will start their backpacking adventure next week.  The MS group will all head out on Tuesday as will Riverside.  Soon you will be hearing the stories from their adventures.  It’s hard to believe we only have a bit over a week left in our summer.  It always goes too fast.


Are those Halo’s on 7th Heaven??!! Closing Day Breakfast – What Fun!


For those of you that have arrived home we hope that your child’s experience has captured all the magic of what camp can be.  We hope you will hear stories and songs as the weeks go by and camp becomes a great memory.  Placed in the hands of a mature staff a camper really gains a great deal from “playing outside which produces growing inside”.  From all of us, thanks again for a great session.  Wonderful children, great staff and the Simple Joys of Childhood at Gwynn Valley!  Hope to see you next year!
