They’re getting ready … for you!
The tents are up; the docks are in; finishing touches are being put on the woodcraft shack, and, finally, the counselors have arrived! Camp Greenbrier is being readied to welcome campers, old and new.
Forty young men from around the United States and around the world began their training Sunday, June 21, to create the best summer camp experience possible for boys seven through seventeen.
Our counselors hail from North Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Ohio. They have flown here from Spain, Germany, the Czech Republic, England, France, and Ireland. Some are returning, and some are here for the first time. All are well qualified to engage, encourage, teach and mentor.
During this week of training prior to the boys’ arrival, they will hear about camp traditions, learn about safety, guidance and leadership, set up their activities, and like the boys, will all have their own swim tests to be sure they’re ready to live on the beautiful Greenbrier River.
They will have eaten the scrumptious Mess Hall food, climbed rocks, shot rifles and archery, canoed the river and experienced most of the activities that occur during the summer. They will be ready to welcome the campers for another summer of outdoor living, creating friendships, and learning new skills, on the fields and off.
See you on the 28th!
