What August Camp Has Done For Me

by Judy Danna

How can I put into words what August Camp means to me?....

A homey neighborhood/village of cozy canvas tents, sturdy wash stations, and Croo kitchen/meal setup...

A kaleidoscope of remarkable friends--old and new--always someone interesting to get to know or to reconnect with...

An indescribable panorama of mountain and valley views, near and far...

Magnificent vistas of colorful wildflowers and spectacular scenery of rare beauty...

The immense satisfaction of a tough trail well-hiked and a good physical challenge met...

An ever-so-refreshing late afternoon dip in a delightful local swimming hole...

A familiar routine of rich traditions complete with crackling campfires, entertaining stories, silly songs and shenanigans...

And once again by week's end, an even wider circle of special friends to embrace and make plans to stay in touch with, till you return for more adventures at next year's August Camp.
