Let The Summer Begin!!!
June 5, 2010 by Don Gentle
Finally, after 8 months of anticipation, summer camp begins tomorrow!!! We are so excited to reunite and meet new campers this summer. We have done so much to prepare for this day, it’s plain crazy!
There are many new and exciting things happening at camp this year. Some are completely new and some are old things, but better! If you remember an earlier post about the Rockit, you know about the fun stuff happening in swimming, but we also but down a brand new deck on the dock. Don’t forget about the finished bouldering cave, with hundreds of square feet of climbing wall space! The game room next door is also new, with ping pong and foosball tables. We have also revamped the craft and pottery spaces.
Some of you will also notice that our 5pm “freetime” will have a number of new “choice” activities to choose from including lacrosse (bring your sticks if you want), our new designed disc golf course, field games, and rocketry. Some of the other improvements you will see on opening day and throughout the session!
We have spent the last two full weeks training and orienting our staff. Of course, we focused on coming together as a team, but we also focused on how to teach the skills in the activity, how to be a great counselor, and tips on working with kids. With over 85% of our staff returning from a previous season, we are looking forward to an amazing program! Click here for a few highlight pictures from our staff orientation. Our staff is so excited about tomorrow!
A few notes for parents. We will have a link each day from this blog to the daily pictures. This is where you will need your 2010 password that is in the parent guide, and also given to you on opening day to get you into the picture gallery. Hank and Don will post daily news and helpful information as we progress through the session. As always, if you need anything, just let us know.
See you tomorrow!
