Hello there new (and seasoned) blog readers! Today we brought in resident campers as well as core campers to Timbercrest! The weather has been lovely today, perfect for check-in!
This past weekend was the 50th Anniversary Celebration of resident camping at Camp Timbercrest! Campers, staff, leaders, and others took in the weekend while reminiscing, singing, canoeing, kayaking, making s’mores, and just loving life. It was absolutely inspiring to see these awesome women and men who have been touched by Timbercrest come back here and celebrate this camp – a place where everyone is welcomed. There were touching tributes, lots of silly songs, a million photos taken – it was absolutely amazing. I can’t wait for the next 50 years of Timbercrest!
Check-in went very smoothly today, and there were smiles across campers and staff’s faces. After a dinner of chicken nuggets, salad bar, and ice cream for dessert – everyone headed to the all-camp fire circle across the lake for a night of learning new songs, learning about emergency procedures (I blow the air horn so they know what it sounds like) and having a great time! I’m sure after a long day everyone will go right to sleep, right?
Ha ha ha, probably not… it’s exciting to be at camp!
We will bring you more updates and photos soon!
