2017 Session Highlight Video’s Are Here!

Dear Campers, Parents and Friends, We hope you are well and having a good start to the New Year!  Camp is right around the corner but we’ve experienced everything but summer type weather here in Brevard. Since late fall, we have received about 16 inches of snow from two different weather fronts and it was […]

What’s Important About a Camp Experience!

Dear Parents & Friends, As I write, leaves are falling and the beauty of camp captivates my attention pulling me outside to the clean crisp air and all things natural.  The fall season brings back reality after weeks of wishing that camp went on through the warm months of Sept. and early Oct.  We had […]

Eclipse at Gwynn Valley Was Spectacular!

Parents and friends, The recent solar eclipse at GV was spectacular.  We hosted several groups of friends and family who scattered themselves all over the property where there was an open view.  We had a few clouds, but were able to see about 95% of the evolution to totality and back which was amazing.  See […]

Rolling On the River!

Dear Parents & Friends, I’m back at camp after a great day on the river with Mountainside.  I left camp this morning about 8:30 and met them in a little town called Dillsboro where the Tuck Gorge starts.  It’s about a 4 ½ mile trip with consistent whitewater the whole way.  The group is camped […]

Weaving Your Way Through Camp – So Many Opportunities!

Dear Parents & Friends, Even though it started a little rainy this morning during breakfast, our day was cool and cloudy with the sun peaking through every now and then.  We had some showers about 4:30 but nothing that ran us indoors.  Brookside just finished their evening of Mountain Dancing and about 6 cabins are […]

We Only Get Wet Skin Deep!

Dear Parents & Friends, It takes more than a little rain to dampen our spirits here at camp.  All activities were running strong today as we arrived for breakfast with some sprinkles from the sky.  It rained off and on all day but never too hard and was just the perfect temperature to swim or […]
