Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It is a holiday of reflection where we pause and give thanks. Thanksgiving originated after harvest in 1621, thanking God for blessings and having a harvest feast that lasted three days. As this fall comes to a close and we prepare to sit down to celebrate Thanksgiving, I think back to this past summer and this fall. At Camp Timberlake, we have been blessed with another amazing summer with incredible staff and fantastic campers! We had a fun filled summer with tons of adventure and we all made many new friends. I want to take a moment to thank those that make Camp Timberlake the camp that  is beloved by all!

To our alumni, thank you for your continued love of our camp! Thank you for sharing that love with others. Without our past we do not have the ability to look to the future. Thank you for sharing your memories and stories with us! Through you we are constantly reminded of our mission and our impact on the lives of the people we interact with.

To our staff, we are thankful for all your work and your passion for camp! You make camp run and provide epic experiences for our campers! We thank you for all your hard work and for making Camp Timberlake the camp it is! You are the backbone of camp and we thank you for choosing to work with us and impact our campers! You implement the mission of camp and we are thankful for you!

To our camp families, we are grateful for you consistent support and engagement with our camp! Thank you for choosing us and letting us impact your lives. We thank you for sharing your love of camp with others as you share your experiences and the impact camp has had on you and your family.  We want our mission to impact your lives and are thankful that you let us have that honor!

To our campers, thank you for choosing adventure and growth! You are the reason we love what we do! Thank you for learning, playing, and adventuring with us.  You are a crucial part of Camp Timberlake and are we grateful that you join us each summer to meet new friends and experience new adventures!

We hope that this Thanksgiving season is filled with laughter and joy for you all! We are thankful for all of you and wish you all the best on this holiday!  

Happy Camping,
