Pajama Breakfast!

Fleece, flannel, and onesies —oh my! Monday morning many Gold Arrow Camp staff and campers stayed in their warm, comfy pajamas and wore them to breakfast. Why change clothes when you can stay extra snuggly for a little while longer? Campers enjoyed a hearty breakfast of pancakes, bacon, and eggs with a myriad of other options like fruit, yogurt, cereal, bagels, hot chocolate, juice and more. After breakfast, campers checked the activity board to see what activity they’d start their day with and then headed back to their cabins to get ready for their first full day at camp. They are definitely excited to get the session started!



Sharing GAC With Friends!

At Monday’s Morning Assembly, we recognized our Mini Campers who shared GAC with their friends! We appreciate that most of our new campers learn about camp from their friends who’ve already attended. Each camper received a $20 certificate to spend in the Camp Store!

Camper Departure Day


Welcome Shaver Specialty and Mini Campers!

Our Shaver Specialty and Mini Camp campers arrived today!  We have 100 campers at GAC for the first time and 37 returning campers!  This week, 9 campers will be receiving their three-year banners and 1 camper will be receiving his five-year blanket.

Campers are joining us from China, Japan, and Monaco.

This evening all of our campers will head down to the lake for a fun camp tradition and then to Big Campfire for Orientation.  After Orientation, campers will have campfires with their cabin group, get to know each other better, and start forming new friendships. They will also get ready for an exciting day of activities at GAC tomorrow!
