SO LONG ROOKIES….

Rookie Campers are some of the most popular kids in camp.  They are here for a week, integrating them into the general camp program. We pack as much as we can into that week – activities, friends, and fun!  They develop independence and build self-esteem in a supportive, warm and caring environment. They come home happy, exhausted and maybe a little dirty.

Case in point from the quote I heard from Rookie Rivka:

We’ve done such awesome things today! I’m so tired.

Rookie Camp gives campers (and their parents) a taste of camp life and the goal is that we want them to leave wanting more! And by the look of last week’s Rookies – many of whom were hiding from their parents on Pick Up Day, I think we did our job!

Out of the mouths of babes……they sure do come up with some great quotes.

One Rookie Chloe wrote a letter to her counselors:

 

Chloe, I agree – camp is awesome!

Other comments I heard from some of our Rookies on their last day:

Alyssa – I just want to give you all a big hug!

 

Lia – Is this our last day?

Counselors – Yes.

Leah – Nooooooo!

 

Lauren – We are one big family, a bunk of sisters!

Alex (to her counselors) – Can you come home with me forever?

Mira – I want to stay during the school year so I never have to leave!

Alexa – I am signing up for 7 weeks!

 

And some of the best ones yet….

Julia – I’m gonna go sign up for next year right now. I’m coming back for 100 million centuries!

Ida – I want to stay for 100 weeks!

 

We can’t wait to have our Rookies back in summer 2019!

Until then,

Alicia
