Zip Line at Camp Howard…the Best!


JULY 17, 2017 CAMP HOWARD FEATURING THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF CLAYTON SMITH

I was talking to the 13 & 14 year olds at camp who were participating in the zip line. They were pretty excited about their experience and I heard one of them talking to a friend, “I have done a lot of zip lines but this one was the best!”  I pardoned my eavesdropping and asked why she thought it was the best.  She said the view was fantastic and you could see where you were going and it was “spectacular!”  I thought that was pretty awesome.  She is right…the view is amazing. #cyocamphoward #sistersblogs
