Fri, Jul 17, 2020

SMA 2020 is off to an amazing start! The first week has been the perfect escape from the new and stressful world around us. At camp, instead of watching funny shows on Netflix campers are making their own skits that make us laugh even more, instead of at home workout videos we’re sprinting to capture the flag, and instead of listening to the news we’re listening to funny stories of the day while we all sit together at evening meeting. Never before have we all needed the joy and adventure of SMA quite this much!

On Sunday we were excited to welcome our much anticipated first session of campers back to camp after an incredible ten days of staff training! We started off the week with the first of many ‘Nuke ‘Em’ games, followed by a dip at Greenwood Lake (otherwise known as Freezewood!). After a delicious meal, some camp games & a wonderful evening meeting, we were off to the cabins to get a good night’s sleep ahead of a big first full day of camp!

SMA 3rd Session Campers are Dancing Through the Raindrops!

Stone Mountain Adventures 3rd Session Campers arrived at camp this past Sunday, July 22nd.  As new and returning campers arrived at camp for the opening day of third session, there was a mix of excited and nervous energy.  That energy was quickly harnessed into action with camp counselors leading "ice-breaker" and team-building games.

And then the rains came... the good news for us at Stone Mountain Adventures is that our facility is location in a mountainous region of central Pennsylvania so we are in no danger of flash floods.  

 

How do we deal with rainy days at SMA?  With positive energy and action!  There are some activities that must be modified or postponed because of heavy rain.  However, most activities we just put the word "MUD" in front of them and run them anyway including:

  • Mud Soccer

  • Mud Mountain Biking

  • Mud Ultimate Frisbee

  • Mud Hiking

  • Mud Volleyball

  • and more!
