Posted by Jason Sebell on Oct 5, 2016 2:03:00 PM

Throughout our 87 year history, many campers and counselors have written about their love of our overnight camp for a school assignment. Recently, one of our of Evergreen Sophomores shared with us this paragraph she wrote as part of a class exercise in how to advertise something that you love.

We want to go give a huge shout out to Sophie Isenberg for capturing the essence of our girls' camp, and for sharing this with us. Great work!

With both Color Wars over, our campers are suddenly confronted with the realization that this incredible 7 week overnight camp experience is about to come to a least for this year. All morning long the staff and I have been helping some of our campers process their feelings about how much they are going to miss their camp friends, our activities, their favorite counselors, and what every day life is like here.
