Camp on Hartwell Lake

Filed under: Winter & Christmas — lessie @ 4:17 pm

I snapped this picture while watching the parade, thinking, “What is Camp Providence?” I typed the web site into my browser not expecting much — and to my surprise, Camp Providence has an engaging, colorful, and refreshing web presence. Too many nonprofit sites are, well, frankly flat. The Camp Providence web site includes animation (that doesn’t bog down my computer), pictures of camp life, and all the important pages clickable in more than one spot. I love the home page combination of black background and a photograph of the camp’s main building, white, but colorfully decorated with drying beach towels. As I reviewed the site, I couldn’t help thinking, someone has taken care to select good pictures and place them well. And as I look at the above pic, I think the same can be said for Camp Providence’s parade float: a seasonal skirt, real greenery and straw, a decorated Christmas tree, a sign spectators can actually read, and float riders with santa hats. I think I want to visit Camp Providence in July. 🙂 (Another view of the above pic is here.)



  1. Archie Morgan started Camp Providence for disadvantaged children. It serves a great need in the area. He is a pretty amazing man giving much to his community. Here is a story about him from Anderson Independent.

  2. Thanks so much for the nice comments about our camp website and float. We have a very good board of people who help make all of this possible. Please come out and visit!
