The Family Tree

We are starting a new tradition here at Coppercreek Camp- signing the Family Tree. At the end of last summer, Emma D (Emily Westphal), along with Kathie Cozart (you get to meet her soon on our blog) and Gabby Lichtig, painted our Family Tree on a big wall in the Memorial Garden. This summer, campers, who have attended for at least 3 years, will sign their names in the branches representing the leaves of the tree. Staff, who have attended for at least 3 years, will sign in the roots of the tree. Any alumni who meet the same criteria can sign. They just need to visit! We think it is a beautiful visual of how the people make camp special and create the memories and traditions that are remembered for decades to come.

  1. This immediately brought tears to my eyes! What a beautiful concept (and piece of art). I am moved that my son will sign this summer, and a few weeks later I (alum) will be able to sign as well. The wonders that are Coppercreek never cease! Thank you.

      I am so excited for Zach to be a JC with me! I connected with him since my first year on staff. He is the best, you should be oh so proud of him!

    This was so fun to design and paint. I am really joyed to leave such a big mark (literally) at such a lovely place that has made such a big difference in my life. Can’t wait to see others sign it, and sign it myself!
