Tim Horton Camp Kentahten Leave No Trace Musical Throwdown!

Opened in 2001, this is the first Tim Horton Children's Foundation camp in the United States. The camp occupies 50 acres of waterfront property on Green River Lake, in the heart of Kentucky.  Tim Horton Camp Kentahten hosts residential campers throughout the summer months and March Break.  Campers get to choose from a variety of activities including wake boarding, canoeing, kayaking, archery, high and low ropes courses, disc golf and fishing to name a few.  We had the pleasure of spending the morning with 95 campers from Canada.  As it was a musically themed week at camp, we split the campers into groups and had them create a tune based on one of the seven Leave No Trace principles.  The kids and staff were super creative and had a ton of fun performing their songs!

After our presentations, we were lucky enough to climb the tower on the high ropes course and ZOOM down the zip line.  What a blast!  A special thanks to "Crocs" and the entire staff at Camp Kentahten for making our experience so memorable.  We look forward to returning next summer to have more fun with this crew!

Safe Travels...Kate and Tracy
