Eagle’s Nest on the Road
A couple weeks ago, our Board of Trustees and Camp Representatives excitedly descended upon campus for the annual Fall Retreat. The weekend was highlighted by beautiful, warm days that led to crisp fall nights. Many spent time reminiscing about their experiences at Eagle’s Nest, while other, much younger, participants began creating new memories of their own.
Before heading home at the end of the weekend, the Camp Representative families met to prepare for and brainstorm about upcoming camp parties in their cities. Much of our meeting was spent sharing stories about why we love Eagle’s Nest and the formative experiences it has provided for generations of young and old alike. There was tremendous enthusiasm and excitement about sharing Eagle’s Nest with others.
The weekend left me feeling inspired. The momentum sparked by young and young at heart lingers in this special place and makes me more excited than ever to begin traveling and telling new people about Eagle’s Nest. I carried that enthusiasm with me as I hit the road yesterday for the first camp party of the season in Apex, NC.
Camp parties are the perfect way to hang out with Eagle’s Nest alumni and meet new friends who haven’t been to camp yet. Over the next several months, I’ll be traveling all over the southeast United States (and even as far west as Chicago) for Eagle’s Nest parties. We can’t wait to see past campers and get to know future ones, so please join us when we come to your town! If you’ve never been to Eagle’s Nest, camp parties offer a great opportunity to learn more about our programs, ask questions, and discover what summertime at the Nest is really like.
Check out the Eagle’s Nest calendar to find out when we will be in your city, and follow our journey through posts, pictures, and videos on Facebook. See you on the road!
