Dear Families and Friends,
What a wonderful day here at Camp Gwynn Valley! Our first full day of B session was an absolute blast, filled with a morning of discoveries and afternoon sign-ups. In our Main Camp discoveries, campers were able to make hair pins in the Blacksmithing, go creek hiking around camp, and pick veggies at the farm (to name a few activities)! The weather has been beautiful today, with lots of sun and warmth that made swimming in the lake or making crafts in Shady Grove extra nice.
On Mountainside, we sadly said goodbye to our MS1A campers, wrapping up our first MS session for the summer. As campers and families reunited, there was a buzz of excitement as stories were shared from a fun filled session. Wednesday we will greet our MS1B campers for another 10 days of adventures and fun!
Riverside spent yesterday on the French Broad River for the first day of their adventures, and moved on to the Green River today for another exciting day of paddling. We are looking forward to seeing them in a few days and hearing all about the stories they have to share!
Our Young Leaders enjoyed a cookout on our Hunt Farm and will be camping out there tonight as well! They are one of several cabins on Main Camp who will get to cook their dinner over a fire (s’mores included!) and spend the night outdoors in one of our shelters around camp.
Hearing about all of the adventures and activities that our campers have had today and over the past few days, I’m so grateful for the appreciation of nature that camp allows. From being able to grow and pick the food that we eat at the Farm, canoeing, and camping in the forest, we do our best to spark a connection and appreciation for nature in all our campers.
