Twilight Play – A Camper Favorite!

A Cooler Day and Wonderful Evening!

Dear Parents and Friends, Our day was sunny, bright and warm and with our shade, water activities and fun quotient it was a terrific day here at GV.   Tonight was Tajar Tales for Hillside  and s’mores night for those Brooksider’s.  We also had a giant picnic on the Green that everyone attended.  Our kitchen staff […]

It Was UK Day At GV!

Happy Birthday Tajar!

Dear Parents and Friend, Greetings from the land of FUN! The Tajar visited us last night and there was evidence of his mischief in Downtown GV this morning.  Boats, buckets, bowls, lawn mowers, tables, chairs and anything that didn’t grow hair was somehow amiss.  If you don’t know who the Tajar is, just ask your […]
