It’s honestly true that we have at ‘Ghany a place for memories! This season marks the 90th summer of operation for Camp Alleghany! Thousands of young women have experienced the loyalty and friendship that surrounds us here at camp.
It has been an honor to serve as the 90th Celebration Committee Chair this past year. My committee has worked hard to put together one of the best celebrations ‘Ghany has ever seen! Intentional focus on Camp Alleghany history and tradition will be woven throughout each of this summer’s term camp sessions, while Family Camp will include varied special events and the culminating grand celebration!
During term camp we brought back many traditions such as the 4th of July hat parade, backwards day, B/G surprise parties, and more!
August 7-14 are the dates for 2011 Family Camp, and while Family Camp is booked at this time, we do have a waiting list!
The following events will take place during the week of Family Camp:
- Monday, August 8: A traditional ‘Ghany Campfire celebrating the decades of Alleghany’s history! Enjoy a skit by family campers, a slide show presenting the nine decades of Alleghany, and all of the traditional songs that we all love so dear.
- Wednesday, August 10: Alleghany Celebrates Lewisburg! Some of your favorite vendors from town will be in camp for the afternoon including: Hazel, Wolf Creek Gallery, Harmony Ridge Gallery, Studio 40, Watts Roost Winery, and more! The market will be open from 4-5:45pm under the apple tree.
- Friday, August 12: TGIF, Toast ‘Ghany, It’s Future: An evening of dinner, music, fireworks, and more to honor 90 summers at Alleghany.*
- Saturday, August 13: A repeat performance of the traditional ‘Ghany Campfire from Monday night.
Join us as we honor the history and celebrate the future of the camp we all love best!
–Laura Gorsuch, 90th Celebration Committee Chair
