As the gates opened on Sunday afternoon, a flood of excited parents and campers arrived on campus for Opening Day of Session 2.  We were excited to welcome a full session including 20 new campers and 33  campers who are children of alums.  As parents said their goodbyes campers quickly settled into the routine of camp including going for a dip in the lake and planning some rockin’ air guitar performances with their cabins.  Campers eagerly signed up for their classes and today we have settled into the daily schedule as we begin our first full day of classes.

This session we have a few special classes being offered including Egg Lab, a cooking class framed around different types of egg dishes and Experimentation Nation, a class full of fun science projects.  We are also excited to begin production of the Session 2 Musical, Marry Poppins!  Many campers have signed up to sing, act, and dance in the production as well as design and build the sets and costumes.

Many adventures await our campers this session. We will be updating our blog and uploading photos to our flickr page every few days. To follow our adventures, follow us on Facebook and Instagram at @EaglesNestCampNC and on Flickr at
