Between a Rock and a Hard Place

High School Adventure is bouldering at Stone Fort near Soddy Daisy today. A few first time climbers amidst some seasoned folks – these kids are impressive.

Marathon Camp – Day 3

Excuse the delay of Day 3’s photos – when you live in the woods and have plenty of rain, the internet speed slows to a turltle-ish speed! But we are back and ready for action… hopefully you’ll have a sliver of the fun looking at these photos as we had yesterday hanging out in the Nature Center, fishing off the point, trust walking in Challenge Course, sock-hopping, and celebrating eleventh birthdays!

Simon says: Go to your left, no right, I mean left.
Eleven years and we wish you many more, Happy Birthday to you!

For our campwide evening activity we broke out our oldies (but goodies) and busted a move on the dance floor at our Sock Hop & Ice Cream Social! The kids had a blast dressing up and cutting a rug – the staff even taught them a dance move or two:

Let’s go to the hop – oh, baby – let’s go to the hop!

Put your hands up and SHOUT!

We had a great – and soggy – day!

Check back later for today’s happenings…
