Airy and Louise Directors’ Blog, July 12, 2021
JUKE BOX HERO
The musical options at our disposal to commemorate the 2021 Camps Airy & Louise CITs first social are plentiful. Of course “We Are Family” comes right to mind. After all …
“Everyone can see we’re together as we walk on by
And we fly just like birds of a feather I won’t tell no lie
All of the people around us they say, can they be that close?
Just let me state for the record, We’re giving love in a family dose”
The answer is a resounding “yes.” Thanks to Sister Sledge.
From a geographical and altitude perspective, Camp Louise could quote Garth Brooks and say “I’ve Got Friends in Low Places.” Except in this case, the Airy CITs traveled UP the road to Camp Louise for lunch, so perhaps a more fitting tune would be “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. In either case, LL Cool J sums it up best for any and all CITs – “Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years.” Our CITs grew up with us, and each other.
At both Airy and Louise, the CITs are rockstars. Younger campers look forward to a CIT spending time with their bunk. Older campers look to CITs as role models. Directors look at them proudly with strong feelings – we were Airy and Louise CITs; we were unit leaders for Airy and Louise CITs; we are proud to see these campers grow into leaders both in camps and out in the world. And one of us has a daughter who is a Camp Louise CIT – are we that old?!?
It give us such positive feelings that our 2021 CITs can gather for the first of what will hopefully be several summer get-togethers. Our camps and our camp families have made health and wellness a priority, and the result has been our ability to confidently alter the “bubbling” at camp to allow more mixed groupings. As the first session of Summer 2021 rolls along, we are excited for what’s in store, and we know that the group leading the fun will be our CITs.
So long until the next blog,
Alicia & Marty
