2nd Annual Campfire Jams

2nd Annual Campfire Jams

Campfire Jams weekend went off without a hitch! The weather was beautiful and the campers were just as wonderful. We started Friday night off with our delicious buffet served by The Acres Eatery; including choices of Beef Stroganoff with Noodles, Turkey with Stuffing & Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Rice Pudding and more!
After the buffet was over, we got our chairs out (or pulled our golf carts up) and watched the movie
“Cheaper By The Dozen 2”, relaxing the rest of the night before it was time to turn in for the night.

Saturday was a busy day filled with a lot of fun activities. Starting off the day there was a Cornhole Tournament, at 11am fellow campers gathered in the Chapel Field for their chance to be the Cornhole Champions!
After the teams were picked by random drawing, everybody got busy tossing their bags to see how many games they could win and who would come out on top!

YETI Raffle tickets went on sale during the Cornhole Tournament as well. Campers bought their chances at winning a nice YETI cooler stuffed with goodies if they won first prize!

At noon, kids from the campground gathered under the pavilion for Kids Craft Hour. This week we made a special Father’s Day craft that dad could hang on the fridge. The kids got really crafty and put lots of thought into what they wanted their “present” to look like. We were also able to play a couple of games while some glue dried, the kids took part in an exciting game of Red Light-Green Light then a game of Simon Says – it was a blast!

The Sweet Streets Ice Cream Truck started making its way around the entire campground with our favorite cold treats right after the kids craft – giving everybody a chance to cool off a little bit.

2:00pm brought us our Family Kickball Game. Campers of all ages gathered in the Chapel Field to participate in an exciting game! Teams were chosen, captains were picked and the coin was flipped to see who would go first. It was so much fun to see everybody come together and have a great time!

Later in the evening, we all gathered around the pavilion for some Campfire Jams. Musicians broke their instruments out and played us some wonderful tunes, we even had a few campers join in and sing some songs!

At 9:30pm, we took a break from the jams to draw the YETI Raffle winner. All tickets were dumped in a container and mixed up really good before we chose a random kid out of the crowd to pick the winning ticket.

Our 1st prize winner, taking home a YETI Cooler filled with goodies was Shirley Carroll – congratulations!! We also had a second prize drawn of a YETI Rambler 14oz mug and a 3rd place prize of a camo YETI t-shirt. After the drawing, the music started up again and we closed the night out with more of those awesome jams.

Theresa Moore delivered a special Father’s Day Service at the Chapel Sunday morning. Campers gathered around and listened to the message titled “If Dad Can’t Fix It Then Big Daddy Can!!!”. There was also a wonderful rendition of “Amazing Grace” to the tune of “House of The Rising Sun” with Ronda Clark singing and Don Smiley playing the guitar.

Thank you to everyone who came out and camped with us this past weekend, we had a blast! The next big weekend coming up here at The Acres will be the 4th of July weekend, and boy will it be packed with things to do!!! We hope to see y’all there!
