Welcome Session 2 Campers!

Today our Session 2 campers arrive!  We have 73 campers at GAC for the first time and 227 returning campers. This session at our Appreciation Campfire on the final evening of the session, 57 campers will be receiving their three year banners, 38 campers will be receiving their five year blankets, and two campers will be receiving their ten year jackets!

We have a diverse community of campers coming from nine states as well as from China, France, Mexico and the United Kingdom. 

This afternoon after getting settled into their tents, all of our campers will head down to our waterfront at the lake for a fun camp tradition followed by dinner and Camper Orientation at our Big Campfire Amphitheater.  After Orientation, campers will have campfires with their cabin groups, getting to know each other better, and starting to form the friendships that are what make GAC fun.

We are excited to welcome our Session 2 campers to two weeks full of fun, friends, and growth here at GAC!


Congratulations to the Session #1 Graduating Class of 2018!

Session #1, 2018, Graduating Campers

Some of these campers have been with us here at GAC for manny, manny years. We said our bittersweet goodbyes at our Paddle Ceremony on Thursday evening and commemorated their final evening as GAC campers with this photo. Congratulations to this amazing group of kids, who are definitely going to go out and bring positive changes to our world!
