Fall is back in Tuxedo

Fall is back in Tuxedo! The weather around here has turned cool and crisp (and of course still WET!), the leaves are starting to change colors and it is beautiful!

As you can imagine, Green Cove is pretty quiet once you campers and counselors leave, but we do still have SOME action around here.

The barn has been pretty busy. Some of our local schools have changed to a year round schedule where the students go to school all year but get a bunch of 3 week breaks throughout. This year we had our first ever one week "Horse Camp" for the kids who were on break. A group of girls came to the Green Cove barn each morning for riding, stable skills and barn fun. Kathy and Lee had a blast!

In the fall, we generally have a bunch of different groups who come to use camp. Patty Smith was here with her AWESOME mountain biking club, The Dirt Divas. They spent the day riding at Dupont and then came back to camp for dinner and to spend the night and of course for some ziplining fun. Adventure Treks groups have been in and out and right now we have a school group and one of the counselors is our own Shea D'anna! We have also heard from Sydney Clark who is lucky enough to actually get to LIVE near camp. She and her parents and her brother came to the B-40 to camp out at Dwarfs Inn. They had a blast riding bikes and eating smores!

Nancy, Frank, Andrew, Robert and I are all getting ready to start hitting the road! Each year, we travel around the country to talk to people who are interested in coming to camp. Our first stop was in Richmond, VA yesterday. I got to ride in Frank's plane again, it was a beautiful day to fly! The camp get together was a blast! I loved meeting girls who are thinking about coming to camp for the very first time and to also see a bunch of girls who were here last summer. We got to hang out with Lucina, Sophiestewart, Gracie, Ellie and counselor CAROLYN LARGE!

We would LOVE to see you when we are in your area! To see when we are headed to your town, please check our travel schedule. It is being updated very frequently, so check back often.

In the mean time, keep in touch!! We love to get letters and pictures from your adventures away from camp. Hope to hear from you soon and happy fall!!
