Making Memories!

Dear Parents & Friends, We just finished our Tajar Ball celebration and the skies cleared just before the Ball.  Usually, we eat on the lawn of the Green in front of the Dining Room, but thundershowers kept us inside and celebratory none the less.  As many of you know Tajar Ball happens two nights before […]


C-2 Opening as C Dances On!

Adventures Home and Some Just Starting!

Dear Campers and Friends,  For those of you that have campers here from Mountainside, Riverside, Young Leaders and the stayovers for Main Camp, it’s been another beautiful day.  All of Mountainside ended their adventures today and all are back in camp safe and sound after three days of being in the field learning, challenging themselves […]
