Welcome to…

Coppercreek Tracks

our blog featuring photos and stories from now and then.

We want everyone to participate, explore and enjoy.
Hopefully, for those who have been fortunate to experience the magic of summer camp, this blog will let them escape once again.
For those who are wondering what camp is all about, this blog will give you a glimpse into the special world of Coppercreek Camp.
We post photos, stories, camp history, camper and staff poetry, introduce the staff each spring and share about our different programs.
So, brew up  a cup of hot cocoa (with marshmallows!), grab a comfy chair, and poke around this community blog to learn more about the magic of our delightful little summer camp.
