    Just returned from a fun-filled weekend with our Adventure Maiden (a YMCA program) group. We are a group of moms/daughters and if you can imagine, somewhat high maintenance. lol The staff at Camp Elk are AMAZING!! Super helpful, friendly, accommodating, flexible and just so FUN! I've been to a LOT Of resident camp and Camp Elk, by FAR, wins out on customer service. Can't say enough about them. Our girls had a blast. A Must Try is the hike to the bear cave and the ropes trust exercise. So fun.
