As First Session comes to a close today, we look back at all the fun we had these last two weeks.
We started with some silly games.
Sang many wacky songs at campfire and laughed through skits about space aliens and baby deer.
Played until we couldn’t play any more.
Danced in holiday and neon costumes.
Slept under the stars and roasted marshmallows.
Heard the 50 best things about Coppercreek at Vespers.
Celebrated four birthdays and so many “firsts.”
Screamed and shouted away the afternoon at Camp Jam.
And best of all, made new friendships that will last a lifetime.
Today we did not say “goodbye”, but instead we said “see you later.”
We asked Battleship what their favorite part of camp is so far. Here are the answers:
Brandon- Horse Riding!
Jesse- All my friends in Battleship.
Lucas- Canoeing the other night up at the lake.
Riley- Climbing all the way up the climbing wall!
It has been a great first couple of days and we can’t wait for Outpost tonight!
Hi everyone! My name is Shelby Jones and I’m from Granite Bay, CA. When I was nine years old I came to Coppercreek for the first time as a camper. I loved camp so much I came back three more summers as a camper and now I’m back for my first summer as a camp counselor.
I just graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from California State University, Chico and I am planning on going to graduate school to obtain my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy some day.
The greatest love of my life has been horses. I have been horse crazy ever since I was old enough to know what they were. I’ve been riding and competing in equestrian sports ever since I was eight years old.
Some of my other favorite activities are painting, drawing, bike riding, tennis and watching movies. I can’t wait to meet you all, see you at camp!
Summer 2016 has begun! The staff have arrived and we have finished our first week of speciality training. The barn girls finished their certified instructor training and the other staff completed lifeguarding.
The dirt tan lines have appeared, hammocks are hung, and guitars are out. We even had an evening of Salsa Dancing!
Many laughs, memories, and stories have already been shared and created.
This may just be the best group yet!
