Tajar Ball and More at GV!

Dear Parents & Friends, We awoke this morning to the Tajar’s folly with all kinds of pranks in downtown GV.  There were so many things moved and out of place we hardly knew what day it was and where we were.  Tables from the dining room were on the basketball court.  Tubes from the lake […]

A Day on the River Makes for a Perfect Day!

Dear Parents & Friends, What a great day on the river with Mountainside.  I left camp this morning at about 8:15 and arrived at the Tuckassegee around 10:00 to meet them.  They were camped at Mills River Campground which is a National Forest campground between here and Asheville.  The Tuck River put-in as we call […]

A Little Rain Can’t Dampen Our Spirits!

Dear Parent and Friends, I just returned from campfire with a slight drizzle overhead.  We’ve had rain throughout the day but spirits and enthusiasm were anything but damp.  Our last full day of D was truly a great one.  Signups this morning were fun from all indications.  Camp has to be flexible with weather and […]

Chasing Raindrops!

Dear Parents & Friends, My guess is most of you have been watching our weather the past couple of days.  Well, we’ve faired very well and didn’t let a little rain stop us from carrying on here at GV.  It rained, drizzled and spat off and on all day long.  Programs went on as planned […]
