Spoon on Nose

Spoon on Nose


There are many skills you will learn at camp. Some are quite important, like getting along with your tent mates. Others, well, they are just fun!

Although this may not exactly be routine, it is joyful to first learn how to hang a spoon from your nose.




Sunday Night Campfire

Campfire 1Sunday evening is the time for campfire.  Boys can tell jokes, perform in a skit, sing a song, or display their talents.  The show always ends with the telling of a Woofus story.





AC’s – Future Counselors

In their last year prior to being eligible for Camp Greenbrier’s Leadership Academy, boys fifteen years old are given responsibilities at camp.  The AC’s or Assistant Counselors, often are in tents without a counselor, and they may be asked to stay with a tent full of younger boys at rest hour or after taps, while that tent’s counselor is off duty.

All AC’s are given jobs around camp.  Some sort the mail and deliver it to the Mess Hall.  Others wash the camp vehicles or search for Lost and Found. Five AC’s work in the camp store, serving snacks to the younger boys twice daily.

The AC’s are taking the first step towards assuming leadership and responsibility, possibly becoming counselors in the future.
