Camp Warner Park

Since my move in April, I’ve been a busy little bee, setting up summer camp in a 3,000 acre park in Nashville, Tennessee!  Well, June 9-13th it all came together!  This past week was rainy and cool and full of amazing experiences with awesome staff and happy kids. 8 weeks ago, I couldn’t have imagined things would go SO well.  I did all my blogging on CampWarnerPark.com, so you’ll have to head over there to see the rest of the photos.  Here are some highlights!

Our home base- the Bob Brown Field Station!
