Eleven years ago Lynne, a co-founder of Coppercreek Camp, passed away after her battle with cancer. What she left behind is a legacy that her and Papa John created together. Their work has been providing children a safe place to learn, grow, and have fun during the summers for 50 years now.
Our Big Five activity programs have now been explained over the past couple months. Missed one? Here is a recap:

Coming next on the weekend blog posts will be our teen leadership programs!
Many of our staff here at camp live to share their love of music, dance, theater, and comedy with campers.
Every afternoon campers can participate in drum, piano, and guitar lessons on the porch. Many campers choose to play their favorite songs at our Sunday Vespers (words and music) program.
Drama and Musical Theater is offered just about every day. Campers combine individuality and teamwork to create sets, costumes and camper written and directed plays. The drama program culminates in a 30-minute performance on the last evening of camp. These performances have ranged from camper written short plays to a full Lion King musical.
Campers who love to dance will find plenty of opportunity to practice and perfect their skills. We encourage the campers in our dance program to choose their music and choreograph their own routines. We have staff who are tap dancers, ballerinas, jazz and swing dancers, all eager to share their knowledge and skills.
