On May 17th, Camper families gathered at camp to celebrate 10 years of camp magic! More than 700 people enjoyed a cookout and picnic on our new lawn, carnival games, camp activities, live music, wagon rides, ice cream and cupcakes, and reuniting with old friends of course!

The day concluded with a loud and proud rendition of “Happy Birthday” and “Ice Cream, and Cake, and Cake.”

Thank you to everyone who attended, it was a truly a magical day!
