Phi Theta Kappa’s Fall Fellowship Campout

       Every year the Carolina’s Region of Phi Theta Kappa decides on a weekend to get together to go camping at Camp McCall in Bostic, North Carolina.
       Phi Theta Kappa, as an honor society, has four hallmarks they strive for: scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship.
       On October 25-27, more than 80 members of the Carolina Region and their families got together for a weekend for fun, nature and fellowship.
       This was my second year going camping and I absolutely loved it!
       Everyone has the choice to either stay in their own personal tent or stay in a bunk house provided; last year I stayed in a tent and nearly froze, so this year my family and I decided to stay in a bunk house.
       There are campfires at night, games and activities for children, and ample free time to hike and enjoy the beautiful sites that Camp McCall has to offer.
       Personally, my favorite part of the camping trip is the beautiful waterfall. We were lucky enough to stay in a bunk house near the waterfall so we could hear it while just sitting on the porch.
       The waterfall alone was worth the five hour drive to Bostic.
       Because it is so close to Halloween, on Saturday night there is a costume contest for children and adults, a pumpkin carving contest, trick or treating and a fall festival for the children.
       It is a wonderful weekend filled with family, friends and nature.
       The price for the weekend is $10 for adults and $5 for children, but a family is only $25, no  matter how many people attend.
       The price includes: dinner Friday night, breakfast, lunch and dinner Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. It also includes lodging (if preferred) and access to the wonderful camp site.
       The next campout is scheduled for October 17-19 2014, so if you or someone you know is in Phi Theta Kappa, don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity!
