We just returned from a short trip to Weaverville, NC, near Asheville, where we acted as back-up babysitters with the grand-kids while their Mom performed her nursing duties and their Dad played drums with a quartet at Windy Gap.  The 3-day camp session served as the kickoff of the school year, as well as a spiritual retreat,  for 310 Covenant Day School high school students from Charlotte, NC.  The property is quite impressive, set in the mountains, and included a pool, a mountain creek, large lake, horses, go-cart track, zip lines, giant swing, basketball courts, Wiffle ball field, climbing wall, volleyball sand courts, a theater for worship sessions, large dining hall, lots of wonderful food, and great accommodations for adult staff and their families.  I'd go back in a heartbeat!!
