Camp Don Lee
This is one of the most beautiful places on this edge of the state! This is a sailing camp and much more! My daughter went to camp here several summers when she was younger. She learned how to sail a Sunfish and 16' Hobie, canoes and kayaks. She had so much fun! (Not counting the old bath house that I think is replaced now. Ha ha! It makes them tough.) This is the Nuese River and it's three miles wide.
We took the fifth grade here yesterday and I got to chaperon. I know it sounds horrible with a bunch of kids but it was a super good time! The temperature was 84 degrees and not a cloud in the sky!
We played lots of games and team building activities. We learned about the water cycle, weather instruments, plants, and critters of the woods. See, when your on a field trip, the children have to learn too! This is a Christian camp as well.
I was a little freaked out when it came to the nature trail. "Look, a spider here and a snake hole there!" All the time I'm telling the kids "Ok everyone keep together and move on. Hurry up!" The mosquito's almost carried us away!
Can you see our little friend below?
I was to the point that I couldn't look down anymore cause I was afraid as to what I might see. Ha ha!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all enjoyed it!

Just my daughter, not me. I was telling a friend about your trees in your back yard. So pretty! Tomorrow TGIF!
