The safety of our campers was our top priority throughout this situation. They were all safe and enjoyed their regularly scheduled Thursday night camp activities including skits and vespers. We were in regular communication with the fire crews to monitor the situation and ensure the safety of our campers. The fire didn't impact the remainder of the session’s programming.
We appreciate the hard work of firefighters from the Tennessee Department of Forestry, the Townsend Volunteer Fire Department and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park who kept the camp, our campers and our staff safe.
