The Good News

Next week is camp week. Youth Camp, that is. More accurately, Sappony Heritage Camp, which is part of our Sappony Heritage Program.  

Am I ready for a week of tick checks, mosquito bites, sweaty, smelly me, teens and kids?  A week of NO INTERNET and hit or miss cell phone coverage? Those last two hit hard.

But here's the good news: I'll be staying at my remarkable Aunt Lois' (scroll down on the link) house so I'll have a comfortable non-cabin bed and a bathroom (oh, luxury, and thieves, my son will be at my home with our dog so sorry about that); the way the kids and teens want to learn about their heritage is surprisingly awesome, as is the way they form a lasting bond with each other; and the opportunity for adults to reconnect. All good news, and how can you beat any of that?

I'll also take the opportunity for some quiet time at the lake. More good news.

If you'd like to get a small taste of camp, come on out to the Sappony Trail Run this Saturday, June 15, 2013 at Mayo Park in Person County, NC. Registration opens at 7 a.m., 1  mile fun run is at 8:30 a.m., 5k is at 9:00 a.m. The Sappony Trail Run supports our Heritage Camp.

Happy trails.
