Closing Day A Session!

Dear Parents and Friends,

It’s hard to believe that our first session of the 2016 summer has already ended! The families of our A session campers started to arrive after breakfast. Happy reunions were seen all over camp this morning as children ran into the arms of their parents and showed them their favorite activities and spots around camp. Cabin groups (and their families) had a final friendship circle in the cabin and then went down to the lodge for our Closing Campfire. Through skits and songs, farm and mill reports, and recaps from our head counselors, we do our best to summarize the session and help parents understand everything that has happened over the last week. Of course, it’s hard to explain the magic of camp to someone who has not lived it, but we do our best.

Today was also a closing day for our first week of Day Camp. Parents and grandparents gathered this afternoon for the closing. Much like the Main Camp Closing Campfire, campers sang songs and performed skits to explain all the fun they had this past week!

Mountainside 1A campers are still out on their Adventure, and we eagerly await their return tomorrow! For tonight, only Riverside campers, Young Leaders and our A–>B Session gypsies are still in camp. These two groups are doing their best to take advantage of all the wide open spaces around GV. I forsee some excellent lake time tomorrow.

It’s fun to have the run of camp, but we are really looking forward to having another  full session starting again on Sunday when our B session campers will arrive!  Thank you again for sharing your children and providing us such great kids to work with.  Hope you all arrive safely wherever your destination.  Stay tuned!
