“Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August.” – Jenny Han

Can you believe it is already July?? July at GBR is the sweet taste of cold creamy ice cream, the sound of children playing in the gaga ball pit, and the scent of steaks on the grill. At night, the smokey perfume of campfires mingles with the sound of cornhole bags thumping on wood, and there is a regular parade of golf carts throughout the park as members visit friends old and new. Activities are in full bloom, with kids’ games, Teen Night on Thursday, and Wacky Wednesdays for tweens; as well as plenty of adult crafts, games, and live music almost every Saturday night. In July we will be celebrating the 4th of July, followed by Bike Week. Speaking of Bike Week, we will be having our annual Bike (Motorcycle) Run to Benefit the PA Wounded Warriors Program on July 11th, followed by a picnic and music by the amazingly talented Marshall Stone. Then get ready for Viva Las Vegas Weekend with Elvis shaking his pelvis down at the Pavilion! He might even be bringing Patsy Cline with him! July must be our month for celebrity guests because the big, bearded guy in the red suit will be camping at GBR for our very beachy Christmas.

We are hoping Santa will bring GBR some snow with him, or at least a nice soaking rain; conditions remain very dry here, and the combination of drought with unusually high heat indexes has made it very difficult for our wells to keep up with demand. Water conservation is critical, and the only way we have the right to ensure enough water for the basic needs of our campers. Unfortunately, this means closing our laundry facility for the month of July, so if you plan to wash clothes during your stay, luckily there are several nice laundromats here in Gettysburg. Another way to minimize strain on our wells is to fill up your freshwater tank before you come to visit and utilize that water when you can. We thank our members in advance for doing their part to make sure water remains available for everyone during this dry spell.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
