Camp Maxwelton 2010

     The following is a mosaic telling the pictoral story of two of my grandsons' return to Camp Maxwelton in Rockbridge Baths, VA. I am sorry the photos have not come out larger, but maybe if you click on them through Flickr, you will be able to see them a bit better.  If any of you have a suggestion for me, I am open to any help you can give me.  This special camp has been in the same family for years, and I have taught with the son that presently operates it. Maxwelton is a wonderful place for boys and young men to spend a month of their summers: a family oriented, closely knit,and Christian camp where the counselors are all former campers - probably 2 per camper - who continue to return year after year. It is a wonderful place here in the Blue Ridge Mts. of VA, that I recommend highly. As best I can remember, this is the 5th year for Willy - now a counselor - the 2nd for Henry, and Crenshaw, who would have been in his 7th year has now graduated from SAS and is out in CO, working for the summer. It is just not going to be the same without him here, but I will enjoy sharing my summer with two of my boys. As I grow older they move on as we all do. Sometimes that is sad for those of us who are grandmothers and great-grandmothers, but such is life. We just have to treasure the moments we have with them when we are with them.... one day at a time. 


  1. Genie,
    Not to worry about the picture sizes...once you click on over to Flickr with them you can seem them in a beautiful big slideshow. How wonderful! Was that a "horse patty" I saw in one photo??? LOL! Beautiful countryside, inviting swimming hole, and handsome young men. How grateful you must feel. Thank so much for sharing.

  2. It was a great day, and yes, that is a “horse pie!” Thanks for the reassurance about the photos. I am still working at it. Hugs, Genie
