Bears’ Ice Cream Social & Dance

Bears’ enjoyed an ice cream social and dance on Monday evening!


Big Campfire

Bears & Tigers campers took to the stage Saturday evening, showing their creative sides and creating lots of laughter at Big Campfire! Swag and Sandwich did a great job leading the evening by emceeing and introducing each skit.



Carnival Day Fun

Today was Carnival Day! Campers had many different activities to choose from at the carnival including dancing, football toss, dunk bucket, photo booth, and many more fun games!

At each station campers earned tickets which they put in drawings for different prizes. Some of the prizes included extra s’mores at campfire, a soda party for your cabin, and movie night at Big Campfire. Campers also enjoyed music, dancing, and lots of social time, plus some good old-fashioned carnival junk food like cotton candy, popcorn, nachos, and snow cones! 

It was a fun-filled carnival day here at GAC!

Bears’ Adventure

Today during lunch, our Bears cabin groups (Cabins 14, 15, 17, & 18) returned from their overnight trip known as Bears’ Adventure! The dining porch exploded in applause and sang out the Bears’ Chant, “We’re proud to be G-A-C Bears. Yes, we’re proud to be G-A-C Bears!”

The Bears campers and counselors left Friday morning for their hike to “The Point,” following a pathway near the shoreline of Huntington Lake to the opposite side of the cove from GAC. After a picnic lunch, they were shuttled by boat across the cove to our new camping destination, “Hill Top.” 

Campers enjoyed lots of outdoor free play time over the afternoon, building forts and playing together in the dirt. They loved roasting hot dogs for dinner and marshmallows for dessert over the fire. After some more playing, a few more songs around the campfire, and a story from TQOE, it was already time to sleep in their tents!

We are so happy that the Bears had a blast on their adventure, and we’re also so happy to have them back in camp, just in time for Big Campfire skits and songs tonight!
