LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN CAMP FOR BOYS

A Week in Review

The 2nd week of our last session of 2017 started off with a bang!   Monday Rob took a group of campers off to the Ocoee River for some whitewater rafting.  This river has miles of challenging and exciting Class III and IV rapids.  The boys had a blast.  Then on Tuesday, Rob took some of the younger campers over to raft on the whitewater of the Nantahala River.  This river has 8 miles of Class II rapids before splashing through the exciting Class III whitewater of Nantahala Falls! The water was icy cold but plenty of fun was had by all!.  Thursday morning Mr. Saunders Alpaugh from New Orleans, LA was here to instruct the boys on Fly Fishing.  Those campers going on the Tellico Fishing trip had the opportunity to learn about the history of the sport.  Friday brought us a bunch of new 2 week campers.  Glad y’all are here!!

It’s a heck of a tale!   Y’all probably know Mason Welsch in Cabin 3, but did you know he is Tyler’s younger brother?  Well he is!!
