Best overnight camp in West Virginia – Camp Adventures!

Camp Tall Timbers is the best overnight camp in West Virginia for adventures, here’s why!

Yesterday was our first trip since 2019! We were fortunate to have an extremely successful and fun day in the sun at Cacapon State Park! 

On the bus ride there campers sang songs and learned bus traditions that have not been shared in the past few years such as holding your breath when driving past a cemetery and holding up your feet while touching a screw when we go over train tracks.

Once at Cacapon the campers were able to swim and jump in the lake, nap, read, or play games on the sand and eat yummy snacks at the snack bar. 

After this fun-filled afternoon campers and counselors changed and moved to a pavilion where we had a cookout with burgers and hotdogs. Quickly moving on to our evening activity which was a surprise…MURDER MYSTERY NIGHT. 

The campers found out that Gigi, the dog, had disappeared under suspicious circumstances, and were then split into six groups. This suspenseful activity entails all of the groups becoming detectives and interviewing six counselors and doing activities to gain information from them to try and figure out who would want to kill our beloved, hilarious, and sometimes filthy Gigi. In the end, Patrick (head boys counselor) was the culprit and killed her because Glenn was spending too much time with her. Even today campers are continuing to interrogate him.  

Everyone was actively participating in swimming, snacking, and detecting until our extraordinary day was over, ending with chocolate chip cookies on the bus ride home!
