CAMPER-IN-TRAINING DAY 2019!
In addition to our 465 campers in camp, we welcomed in 59 campers-in-training and their families today to come and truly experience camp in action! The campers were placed into “bunks” with counselors of their own, and they got to participate in some of our activities including fun with our Outdoors department, Arts & Crafts, dance, drama, folkdance, gaga, and swim! They got to see a bunk and even get some mail at our camp post office. What a fun surprise for them!
Meanwhile, the parents were also placed in “bunks” with their own counselors too! They had a tour of camp, visited a bunk, did some letter writing, and heard from some of our staff in a panel discussion. In addition, they also got to participate in some activities too!
Everyone enjoyed a typical camp lunch of chicken tenders and tater tots in the middle of their busy day.
One of the best parts of the day is hearing the WELCOME TO CAMP shouts from all of our current campers and staff. They are so very proud to show off their summer home to these prospective campers.
At the end of Camper-in-Training Day, it is quite a treat seeing all of our new campers running into the Dining Hall to see their parents and hearing them talk about their day – the activities, the food, and their new friends!
Some of the friends they met today may truly become their FRIENDS FOR LIFE!
Can’t wait to see them all back in 2020!
