Summer in the Neighborhood
The first week of Summer Discovery Old Fashioned Sleepover Camp takes over Last House. The first day of camp, the kids set up 7 large tents, filling the first floor rooms. It’s the kind of thing kids would love to do at home, but moving all the furniture and displacing family life doesn’t usually go over well with mom.
Sleepover campers label their tents, stake out their spots with sleeping bags and favorite belongings, paint pillow cases, make dream catchers, read in the dark with flashlights, sing camp songs–all the things you would do if you were away at camp. It’s incredibly fun for kids.
The Forsyth campus is a neighborhood: 6 houses built in the twenties with The Big Backyard, a sport court, playgrounds and The Forsyth Adventure Center tucked into the gym. That’s part of what makes it so much fun in the summer. It’s camp at home. Even the much beloved slip & slide is one of those things you can do at home but professional grade field turf is far more practical than the family's lawn.
