Family Camp

We've packed our cabins full of families and as today wears on we are tiring them out one satisfied camper at a time! Families have been able to choose from activities ranging from gardening, butter making, churning ice cream the old fashioned way, hikes, crafts, and of course riding just to name a few things. At lunch I saw a number of kids and adults alike sporting newly made button bracelets. The days are finally heating up so we've left our high energy sports to the mornings and the afternoons are prime time for low key activities, water games, and other beat the heat ideas. Tonight we'll set up our projector near the backstop on the field and watch a movie under the stars!

Tomorrow we welcome in our 4th week of campers and the staff are looking forward to it. We've got some fun groups coming up including the new Iron Chef program who will be creating a feast under the guidance of our kitchen staff for the entire camp next Thursday! We've also got our first group of the brave little Pioneers, our 6 day program for 2-3 graders.

Our CIT II's (Counselors-In-Training) will be interning in units this coming week, which is their 3rd and final week of the CIT program. They have been such a big help to camp and the younger girls really connect well with them. We'll be sad to see them go at the end of next week but excited that they will have the opportunity to come back as part of our staff next summer!
