We were awoken by a calming rain this morning after an incredible day of staff appreciation! Our Dreams and Sunnyside girls did such an awesome job leading cabins and teaching classes yesterday.. we are so proud of them! The younger girls loved getting to have the older campers help them out all day! It was such a fun day to appreciate such an awesome staff!

We had a few trips out today to continue the adventurous summer these last few days! Zadie H., Clover M., Savy S., Senica V., Grace M., Claire M., Georgia H., and Virginia C. took a nature hike on Balsam Nature Trail for lunch to Mount Mitchell! They returned this afternoon with the brightest smiles and awesome stories! Mary Emma W., Julia W., Gracie H., Josie M., Lila Jane L., Lillian R., and Evy V. took a water skiing trip to Lake James this morning and had such an awesome time getting to experience the lake! Although we were welcomed by rain this morning, we didn’t let that stop us. Dreams End camper Hailey F. said “one of the best things about camp is that even when it rains, we use it to make things even more fun!” And I couldn’t agree more! We see rain as a beautiful thing to play in and not let it deter our activities of the day! We also had two fan favorite meals today which automatically calls for a great day! We had a yummy breakfast of pancakes and bacon! Then for lunch we were treated with the terrific tacos in a bag! Following lunch we went to our cabins for rest hour to relax and reflect on the day’s events thus far. Tray Po was filled with lots of snacks and cheerful supports for camper led tournaments including a running tournament held by Allie B.

We were all thrilled to find out that tonight will be Fine Arts Night! We are so excited to get to see our girls show off their outstanding talents! It is a night that we get to find even more reasons to be so proud of our girls bravery and abilities! We cannot wait for you to hear about their performances and how awesome of a night it will be!
