Dear Families and Friends,
What a wonderful final day of camp! We started the morning with our very last sign-ups of the session for Main Camp. Campers were offered activities like flag football, making campfire apple crumble with camping skills and nature, and trail riding with horses (to name a few). We also had a very special sign-up offered. Due to a few storms last night, we weren’t able to open up the slip and slide we had for Tajar Ball. Fortunately, we were able to keep it throughout the day and offer it for morning activities. Campers had a blast going down the slip and slide and playing Thunderball throughout the morning!
As the afternoon rolled around, Main Campers packed and prepared for pillowcase swim. This is a highly anticipated afternoon for many campers who look forward to the joy of turning their normal pillowcases into personal floaties.
While Main Camp enjoyed their final day of camp fun, our older campers who are staying for 3 week sessions participated in their own activities. Mountainside spent the morning playing a big game all together and the afternoon in sign-ups! Our Young Leaders practiced communication skills in a morning leadership session and tie-dyed in the afternoon! We welcomed back our Riversiders who finished their four day paddling adventure. They recounted stories of their amazing adventure with other campers as soon as they got back on camp, claiming that it was the best adventure they had been on yet!
Closing nights are always a favorite with the menu consisting of pizza and brownies as a treat! The dining hall was buzzing with excitement as campers enjoyed their final meal with the table groups they’ve sat with for the last week.
After dinner Mountainside, Riverside, and Young Leaders parted ways to enjoy their own evening programs while Main Camp gathered in the Lodge for Friendship Campfire. Campers were recognized for their years spent at camp, our fourth year campers received blankets while fifth year campers received a plaque! These are treasures that campers are able to cherish over the years, bringing even more joy to their camp experiences. We finished the evening with a video and slideshow from our photo and video team. Campers loved seeing the silly and fun pictures of themselves from the session.
It was a magical day at camp, and a perfect end to a perfect D session. Thank you for sharing your campers with us, they have made this session incredible! We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow at pick up and having you all back next summer!
