Fall At Coppercreek!

It has been a busy fall for all of us at camp. The leaves are changing and we are working hard to prepare camp for winter while enjoying the beautiful fall weather.  photo 1-3 8.47.09 PMDifferent retreat groups have been enjoying camp in the fall as well. We had a group of alumni from the 1970s and 1980s here for a long weekend. They splashed in the pool, dined on Craig’s BBQ, and stargazed in the meadow. We also had Feather River College’s Outdoor Recreation Program and the FRC Volleyball team at camp for high ropes course training and team building. It was a blast to have these groups here over the last couple months! One of our counselors, Becca Rudy, also visited for a week and helped Sutter in the office and out at the barn.

Sutter was able to take a trip to the Tetons and Yellowstone National Park. She had a wonderful time camping and photographing the beautiful scenery and wildlife.  She has also been riding and training our lesson horses, so they are “tuned up” before their winter break. Fall riding lessons for local kids are also well under way. Sutter’s team of local girls will start showing in the spring in Susanville, Reno, and Oroville! _MG_8127

Team Hogland has spent the fall driving all over the great state of Nevada to watch her play and support her team. The Hoglands have even been to Elko, which well, is almost in Utah if you were curious! Ryleigh becky and craig
Kenna is busy in 2nd grade. She loves her teacher and has started playing a little volleyball herself. Becky and Craig are destined to spend their lives sitting in a gym. photoFall enrollment was successful! Many of our programs are filling quickly. Now is a great time to enroll to ensure your choice of dates and programs. Tuition will increase January 31st. Fall is never too early to start planning Summer 2016! Just 7 months until camp starts. Keep an eye out for our December events!

Words for Wednesday by Ryleigh Hogland!

It’s hard to express in words how much camp means to me, but I’ll do my best, so bear with me.

Camp is home, my happy place. Camp is family where being related by blood doesn’t matter, but love makes family.

Camp is everyone not being afraid to just be them, be nice, to form relationships that don’t occur out in the real world. To just be and not be judged, but to be accepted. Camp is everyone forming these beautiful bonds that tie us together forever.

I talk to my camp friends throughout the school year more than I talk to my school friends most of the time. There’s no worry about not being accepted, no debate over whether or not you can be yourself.

It’s family, welcoming you with open arms after way too long away from home. rooandcaro
