Sailing in our boat
Waves splashing up on the 
Oh no, capsizing

I love Gold Arrow
It is the best thing of all
Here everyone rocks!

I love the fresh air
Capfires are fun with
But goodbuys are sad.


Speeding down the lake
Captain of my little ship
I would sail all day

Soaring over waves
Arms straining with the 
engulfed by water

Overcome by fears.
Have fun. Socialize. Love
Discover yourself.

What is a GAC Chat?

A GAC Chat is an informal gathering of camp families, both returning and new, along with one of the Camp Directors or another camp representative. GAC Chats are hosted by current camp families in their homes. Campers who have attended GAC share about their experiences, a brief slide show is shown, and there is plenty of time for asking questions about camp as well as socializing with other campers. This is a great opportunity for first-year families to learn what GAC is about and meet other camp families from your area.
