September 29, 2018 (Departure Day, Vermont Session at Tamarack Farm) Written by staffer J. That bittersweet day came upon us again.

September 28, 2018 (Day 8, Vermont Session at Tamarack Farm) Written by camper Sam Ever have that moment where you go to take a picture of the stars and your camera decides it isn’t capable of capturing beauty; a beauty our minds can’t even fully comprehend yet the little specks of light we do see […]

September 27, 2018 (Day 7, Vermont Session at Tamarack Farm) Written by camper Jeanne These last few days have been my favorite and also my least favorite of camp.
