The First Week of First Session 2008!

Posted by Jud Millar on Fri, Jul 4, 2008


What an exciting first week at Stone Mountain Adventures! We kicked off our first session having all of our campers go through our Ground School for rock climbing – each camper learned how to belay for a climber, including knot tying and proper safety techniques. The first few evenings we spent playing large silly group games, and on Wednesday night we had a campfire! The kids broke up into groups and performed classic campfire skits, complete with hilarious costumes from our costume box.

The performance bug carried through to our Invention Convention – it is impossible to say which was better: the inventions or the skits to sell them! Regardless, all the campers had a great time watching one another’s skits and dancing under our disco lights during the intermissions. Speaking of disco lights, we danced as best we could on wheels during our camp trip to Penn Skates roller skating rink in State College.

This past Sunday, we spent the morning cleaning our bunks and straightening up around camp, then celebrated our hard work during an All-Camp Day at Greenwood Furnace. We swam in the chilly water, enjoyed ice creams from the snack bar, and played a few great games of ultimate Frisbee. Sunday night finished up with a good old-fashioned cook-out!

Tonight we’re off to play Capture the Flag – may the best team win, and may we all have a great time!

Stay tuned as Anne & Jud are expecting the arrival of their new baby any day now. Anne is due on July 3rd!!
