The Summer 365 Counselors are feeling thankful for the wonderful gift that is a summer spent at camp. And so, as we settle into our turkey and stuffing (and yes Thanksgiving s’mores are obviously on the dessert menu), we thought we’d share what aspects of camp we are truly grateful for…from friendships to field days and everything in between. From our family to yours Happy Thanksgiving!!

And no, we don’t mean those sweets at the canteen or s’mores by the campfire!
