Summer Season Ends at Camp Arrowhead

I’ve spent two “weekends” at Camp Arrowhead this summer, one with each of my older daughters, and both were excellent. I’m sorry to see the season end, and I’m sure the staff is, too.

The staff, by the way, is wonderful — from camp director Sprout to all of the counselors and kitchen staff. They obviously love children, and their enthusiasm makes everything fun, even doing kapers and attending flag ceremonies!

This past session was the Sals and Pals and Troop Camping session. We had four troops and eight Sal/Pal pairs in camp. We got to sample a bit of almost everything Camp Arrowhead has to offer — climbing Wind Mountain, hiking, canoeing, arts and crafts, games, the climbing wall, campfires, and S’mores. Canoers got to see turtles, tadpoles, and some interesting-looking freshwater sponges. Oh, and some of us went stargazing Friday night, which was an excellent night for watching the stars. From Camp Arrowhead, you can actually see the Milky Way, and we saw several shooting stars.

I thoroughly enjoyed spending one-on-one time with my daughter. Moms often don’t get a chance to just relax and have fun, and that’s really what you get to do at Sals and Pals. I wish I could take my youngest, too, but she’s only three!

I’m putting up more pictures on the photo page, both from our troop camping session earlier in the season, and from the Sals and Pals session.

If you didn’t get to go to Camp Arrowhead this year, be sure to look for a brochure next year and sign up early!
