Play Day with Camp Alleghany

Playday 1Saturday night was Play Day.  More than 100 girls arrived before dinner to join our Senior Camp boys for and evening of food, fun, and nervousness.  After dining, everyone gathered in the Play Hall for a great dance with our own DJ’s.  As anxious as the campers are in the beginning, the end of the dance is always bittersweet.
