Here at Maripai, we know it is important to make everyone feel special, especially when they are away from home. Yesterday was the birthday for one of our amazing international staff, Rio! We had so much fun celebrating with her all day, and singing "Happy Birthday" to her many different times. We ended the night at dinner with cupcakes, a crown, and too many balloons to count. We are so lucky to have Rio here with us this summer, and cannot wait for more birthday celebrations with the girls!

Hey all! The Maripai staff has officially arrived for training! Today we helped our camp manager, Gary, put together our very own Gaga Pit! Though this has nothing to do with Lady Gaga, we sure think it is just as entertaining. We even had a chance for some of our staff to try it out, which was amazing! We cannot wait to have fun with the girls this summer and keep them active here at camp.

Training has been an absolute blast so far as we have gotten to know our staff from all over America and abroad. Aside from Gaga Ball we have been spending time freshening up on our camp games, traditions, and of course SONGS! One thing is for sure, every day is a new adventure here at Maripai and we are excited to share it all with you soon!

Hey all! June 5th is right around the corner, and the staff here at Camp Maripai could not be more excited for the camping season to get under way! Today more of the staff arrived for training, including all of our program leaders! We cannot wait to hang out with the girls and do archery, arts and crafts, sports and games, science, nature, go canoeing, and of course go HORSE BACK RIDING! We hope you are as excited about the summer as we are, and cannot wait to see you all soon!
