Hello from Camp High Rocks! Today is our first full day in activities, and camp is in full swing.
You will see a lot of great pictures of the boys participating in their chosen activities. Today, the campers are learning the basic skills and methods of the activity and will follow a progression throughout the session, continuing to build more skills each day. Our goal is for each camper to progress in his skills through a session and then from year to year. When I was talking to some of our oldest campers during the four-week session last week, they said that this year was their best ever! That is exactly what I want to hear – that each year was even better than the previous year!
Yesterday, the boys and their counselors thought up age group nicknames. Rather than just calling them “group 1,” or “juniors,” we have the age groups come up with a fun name that usually precedes a chant or song. You’ll have to wait and hear the chants from your boys on parents’ day, but the group names are listed below.
- “Insane Cow Posse” (Hillside & Connestee) are at the water slide.
“Prevaricating Platypuses” (Lakeside, Foxhollow) are playing Danish Rounders on the Activity Field.
- “Tasty Taco Squad” (Flattop & Chalet) are playing a game on the Cabin Field
- “Rabid Monkeys” (Windswept & Outpost) are in the Gym playing Chum Ball.
“Kings of Leon – – itis” (Halfway, & Pinnacle) are heading to “Sliding Rock” and Dolly’s Ice Cream
- ““Atomic Hippie Squad of Justice”” (Holiday Inn & Lookout) are playing a game on the Soccer Field
Tomorrow we start our cabin overnights with Halfway, Pinnacle, Holiday Inn & Lookout cabins.
Have a wonderful evening and enjoy the pictures!!!
