Today we closed what was an incredible session here at Camp Timberlake. We watched excited boys greeting their families, regaling them with stories of adventures had and skills learned here at camp. The chapel was ringing as the Camp Hymn echoed off the rafters and our campers celebrated what was an outstanding session in our closing ceremony.

The ceremony culminated in the announcement of the banner winner…the Golden Eagles! Congratulations to this session’s Golden Eagles, who have now added their names to the history books here at Timberlake.
It is always bittersweet to close out a session. As directors, Catherine and I are proud to see our amazing staff finish strong, and to see the smiles on both parents and campers faces, as the boys walk a little taller, stand a little straighter and smile a little more confidently after their time at Timberlake. But it is not without sadness that we wave goodbye to so many amazing campers and their families. We can hardly wait to have everybody back next summer.
Catherine and I could not be more grateful for the opportunity we have each summer to serve here at Timberlake and work with your sons. Thank you again for sharing them with us and see you next summer!
Director, Camp Timberlake
