Our Session 2 Eagles (campers entering 9th and 10th grades) enjoyed a new opening-night tradition for our oldest campers – dinner at Granite Grove! Our new event space is part of the expanded camp footprint. We’ve transformed an open grove into a beautiful venue for evening dinner parties, dances, and special events. Campers sat at round tables under sparkling white lights that line the grove.
Following dinner and dessert, we talked about their important role as leaders and role models at GAC, as well as our desire for these two weeks to be the best weeks of their year, free of any stress and pressures they face at home. Several campers talked about what GAC means to them and how happy they are to be back at GAC for their final (or second to final) year as campers.
Each Eagles cabin group has a younger “buddy” cabin to mentor this session. Following their dinner party, the Eagles campers sat with their buddy cabin groups at our all-camp orientation!
We’re so excited about our new party venue – Granite Grove – and our oldest campers enjoyed a fun first evening there!
