Love A Challenge

Don’t you love a challenge!  Maybe you like to sit in a grassy area and look for a four-leaf clover.  Maybe you are a jigsaw puzzle guru.  A gatherer.  A picker.  A quilt maker.

Or, perhaps you challenge yourself to attend only one fun April event in Camden SC.  Now, you have entered the world of loving a challenge.  How do you begin the challenge of selecting only one event?

2.  Narrow your interest

Horses. Outdoor activities.  Car racing.  History.  Education.  Music.  Dining.   Hummmm…that isn’t as simple as you thought…now is it?   OK, keep trying:

Horses:  Steeplechase, Jumpers, Dressage.

Outdoor activities:  Concert on the Town Green, Pickleball Tournament, Field Trials.

Car racing:  Carolina Motorsports, Lemons Block Party.

History:  Camden Revel, An overnight stay at Bloomsbury Inn.

Education:  Pre-CUP Reception, Nature as Teacher.

Music:  Community Concert Band, Equus Festival, Blankets and Bands.

Dining:  Food Truck Festival, Titanic Tea, or one of the other great restaurants in downtown Camden.

3.  Begin eliminating events

Well, don’t even go there.  Everything on the Camden SC Calendar of Events is fun.  How about this?

Bloomsbury Inn offers beautiful accommodations.

4.  Pick just one

Print out the list of events in item 1, and then throw a dart.  You can only attend the one event that the dart selects!   There is a much better idea.  Select a window of time to visit Camden.  Book a room at the award winning Bloomsbury Inn.  And, attend everything that is happening during that window of time.  CONGRATULATIONS…you have mastered your “love a challenge”.
