*****THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED – OUR WINNER IS STACY KIRK*****
It’s time for another CAMP GIVEAWAY! Today we bring you a free week of camp at YMCA’s Camp Harrison – woot, woot! One lucky Smarty will win one week of resident camp Session 8, August 9-15.
YMCA Camp Harrison at Herring Ridge is located on a spectacular tract of land in the Brushy Mountains of North Carolina located between Lenoir and North Wilkesboro just 90 minutes from Charlotte. There are more than 2,000 acres of woods, streams, and trails centered around private, 140-acre Lake Broyhill.
At Traditional Resident Camp, campers ages 6-16 choose from over 21 land activities including: archery, paintball, ropes course, sports and crafts. Through the Add-On Experiences, which include Horseback Riding, Sporting Clay, Wakesports and Teen Leadership LIT/CIT, each camper can customize his/her own personalized experience. Campers will spend the morning in their track and spend the afternoon with the entire camp enjoying lake front and water activities including: kayaking, canoeing, water zip line, waterskiing, the “Blob” and the “Wet Willie”.
For those of you not familiar with Camp Harrison, check out their Open House on Sunday, May 3, 2015, 11am-4pm. Join CH for a day of fun where you and your child will have the opportunity to experience Camp Harrison’s many adventures and activities! They will have several activities open like the zip line, The Dude Ranch, paddle sports, hiking and more! What better way to decide if your child wants to go to camp this summer than to experience it first hand? Information on Summer 2015 will be available and Directors will be there to answer your questions! If you are already signed up for camp this is a great chance to find out what to bring, how to prepare your camper, and all of the other details you are wondering about. This is a free day of fun! Bring your friends and family and enjoy beautiful Camp Harrison together! They will start the day off at 11am in the Chapel with a worship service and praise band, then head to the dining hall for lunch. Activities will be open from 1-4pm with tours departing every half hour. Be sure to check in at the Dining Hall for an opportunity to enter into drawings and get some free goodies.
