Camp activities included the following: crafts, swimming, a cave tour, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boating, fishing, playing on water inflatables on the lake, campfires, Minute to Win It games, making extension cords supervised by employees from local electric cooperatives, and a variety of other activities.

Fortunately, sleeping and dining accommodations were air conditioned; so in spite of the searing heat, all campers seemed to have a great time and are looking forward to next year’s camp.
