So we have had a chat here at camp regarding our blog and we have had an idea! In order to give our readers an overview of our camp program I am going to write about a different activities as I am able.
As for today I will take you through our arrival day and first evening. Our staff arrive back to camp, enjoy lunch and ready the camp for the arrival and welcome of new campers. The arrival process can be quite busy but our wonderful CITs have everything under control and manage the luggage line in superhero style.
Campers are welcomed into the dinning hall and are introduced to their counselor and fellow campers. It’s great to see the unit meet and get to know each other. There were a few intense games of Jenga today. Once everyone has arrived a unit photo is taken and then it is off to the pool for a swim test. The thunder storm actually changed our normal routine this week – we’re still catching up with units.
As a welcome night dinner we have chicken tenders and macaroni cheese. We also have a full salad bar. And tonight’s vegetarian option is “Hip-Hop Halupki.” What on earth is that? Well…its cabbage rolls stuffed with a yummy mix of lentils and veg in a tomato sauce.
After dinner everyone heads to the chapel and all the staff are introduced to the campers. Each unit then depart with a bag of marshmallows for roasting.
Well good night one and all, its time to get some rest for our first day of adventures tomorrow.
Best Wishes -
Whit your Brit
