Throwback Thursday- 2010 First Session cabin group



We are lucky to have four of these campers still coming to camp.  Returning to camp,  year after year, creates a second “family” and a sense of belonging. You can observe the connections after camp through social media. Just scanning Facebook and Instagram shows all the Coppercreek friends enjoying and supporting each other once they return home. It makes our hearts full.

Club Med- What I liked most about my day!

Counselor Becca

Counselor Becca: meeting new friends, belaying at climbing wall.


Anna: Meeting new friends at the pool.


Hailey: Drama games were fun and funny.


Phoebe: Getting out of the wake on the kneeboard.


Maddie: Riding Cece in the jump arena today.


Eva: Specialty Open House at the barn; practiced vaulting and everything at horses.


Ansley: Hit both signs at sling shots and then signed the boards.

Club Med showing their true personalities!
