it’s a magical place, but its wooden cabin frames, gravel paths & towering trees are nothing without the common sounds of laughter & footfall to fill them. this is the story of the weekend when, before camp opened its doors to its usual flood of summer campers, the pathways were filled instead with big kids, many of whom were returning to camp for the first time in years. i’ll never forget arriving at camp the night before, meeting people for the first time & seeing the wonderment in their eyes over returning to this place they loved as kids. returning for the wedding of tamara & bram.
they met at camp when they were teenagers. he led canoe trips with three other guys, all of whom were there at the wedding. one of the first pictures they have together is sitting on the grass in the sun at camp timberlane. when they first emailed, having seen photos of ours from previous camp weddings, we felt a connection with them & much of our time with them since has been filled with an ease, laughter, and warmth. the weekend was a perfect reflection of that energy they bring.
a few hours north of the city, there were campfires every night, a lot of dancing, sleeping in cabins, and a beautiful mixing of excitement with a calm & peacefulness.
also, keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife… !
