Nesbitt Day Camp in Keatchie
Recently, I had the opportunity to join Mary Nesbitt and her family in Keatchie on one of her day camps. Mary and her husband developed 200 acres to share with family, friends and new friends.
It's a family operation with everyone pitching in to make sure guests have a memorable stay. The acreage includes forested areas, trails, fishing, horseback riding, bug and insect collecting, gardening, etc.
Mary and her husband built their home and several cabins to accommodate overnight guests. Mary uses these cabins to host many types of groups.
The day camps generally are day events but many times, the staff invites the campers to end their week with an overnight stay. The cabins are also used for retreats, recently she hosted a "Mommy and Me" camp.
The Nesbitts occasionally hosts group dinners, camp-outs for families and wedding parties. They also host travelers through the Wwoof USA program (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) who do volunteer work in garden. The day I visited a young man from Belgium was staying at the farm.
This is a special place created by the Nesbitt Family for fun, learning and relaxation.
