Dear Parents & Friends,
What a day at camp! It was the perfect day to get wet and our “special day” theme was Under the Sea. “Special day” here is where we don’t run normal programming and all the activity leaders have the day off. We just finished our Vespers campfire and the theme was God’s Creation. That’s a broad topic and as you might expect there were a variety of thoughts, songs, and words passed along by campers and staff alike. On Sunday’s we rise 30 minutes later in the morning which is nice and everyone gets a bit more rest. Pancakes and fresh fruit with bacon was on the menu and there is no substitute for pancakes, except maybe French Toast.
The Under the Sea theme of “special day” had 10 different stations that campers rotated through during the morning and afternoon. It was a good day to get wet and there were lots of opportunities to do so. Everyone wore their bathing suits and stayed hydrated in the morning and afternoon. My personal favorites were the slip and slides and The Titanic.
Riverside left today and will be out through Wed. evening. Looking forward to checking in with them and I may join the paddlers on one of their river days. We’ll see if they make it and they’ll have to work hard between now and then to muster the strokes and strut their stuff on the Green and Tuck.
Tonight is staff appreciation night or what we call staff rec. It’s a chance to socialize and share some really good food. I’m putting this to bed early so I can be there to honor our staff. They do a great job working day in and day out with your children. Stay tuned!
