On Friday, June 8th the children from Southmountain Estates enjoyed the annual School's Out Celebration held at Camp Lake James. Camp Lake James staff and members from 1780 and the Old Wildlife Club sponsored a fun afternoon of activities and lunch for the children, professional parents and staff. The pool was full of laughter and the beach at the lake was buzzing with kayaking, swimming and paddle boarding.
While Camp Lake James staff and member volunteers engaged and supervised the children, professional parents and staff were treated to a much deserved "time out" to relax and enjoy conversation. One of the volunteers who has been actively involved with the Friends of Southmountain (volunteers from 1780 and the Old Wildlife Club) since its inception three years ago, commented on how encouraged he was to see the comfort level that has grown between the children, parents, and staff of Southmountain and the 1780/Old Wildlife Club Community. This relationship has grown into a true community.
