This summer, every day at Camp Bells Bend Beaman has been an adventure!
We got to explore the beauty of nature.
We got to make new friends!
We got to discover animals and plants we share our home with.
Camp was also a great place to express our creativity, and use our imaginations!
We loved being surrounded by the clear water of the creek and the beautiful, deep green of the trees.
We learned outdoor living skills like how to build a fire…
…which is great to know when you love to make S’mores!
In the Nature Centers we learned all about local plants and wildlife, and the importance of respecting our natural habitat.
Sometimes we even got to get up close and personal with some of them we met.
One of our favorite activities was Archery! It was fun to try and hit the bullseye.
Geocaching with GPS technology? We learned how to use these devices, and went for a lively scavenger hunt around the Park and searched for treasures.
Did you know that Tennessee is full of archaeological sites? We got to explore some at camp. We even examined artifacts!
Every session we spent time in the Nature Centers: there were plenty of things to learn hands-on!
It also felt great to be active in the outdoors daily.
Our counselors were awesome, and we loved learning to work together as a team.
They were always there to help when we needed some support.
Of course, there was always time for silly songs and games.
Every day, there were new ways to play and laugh together…
…and there was always something new and beautiful to discover.
Creek exploration was a great way to keep cool…
…and splash around with friends…
…but it certainly wasn’t the only place to have fun with water!
The parks have hundreds of acres of forests and fields, stretching far and wide!
And you never know what you’ll end up doing when you’re ready to play outside and use your imagination!
We got to go fishing: a great way to learn patience, persistence, and focus.
Plus we got to bring a little bit of camp home with us.
Camp was full of exciting things: you just had to know where to look!
We got to collaborate a lot: here we are building a fort together…
…and we had a blast with our counselors and all our new friends!
Every day there were new ways to play…
…new things to try…
…and new hobbies to learn!
It was a really great summer at Camp Bells Bend Beaman!
We can’t wait to come back in Summer 2017!!
