Today Rocked!

Just another beautiful day at High Rocks!  We are enjoying some amazing high-pressure days with cool mornings, and afternoons just warm enough to be excited about some swimming.  The activities looked amazing today too.  The pictures tell the story of how much fun we are having!  It really was quite magical!

I know many of the parents are wondering how everyone is doing, and I hope the nightly blog and pictures give you a good sense of the daily routine of camp.    In the next day or so the first letters from High Rocks will be arriving in your mailbox.  There is the possibility of a letter coming home that may worry you. So, let’s talk about homesickness.  It’s not a scary word. It’s all about growing up one step at a time.  After almost 30 years here at High Rocks, I have some pretty good experience with kids and camp. That being said, a little homesickness is normal.  More often than not, what you are reading in those letters today has passed. They are on to bigger heights. Remember, we are professionals. If you feel worried at all just drop us a line.  Don’t forget to do the same for your son.  Give him some encouraging words; tell him how proud you are and how he will be just fine.  Try not to go on about how the dog misses him, or all the cool things you are doing at home.  When you are learning to take some steps on your own, sometimes you fall down and get back up.  It’s definitely not a reason to stop walking. Camp is a super place to step out on your own.  If you do feel like you need to give us a call, we are here to help.  Don’t forget, the boys love mail.  If you have not sent anything, emails are certainly a quick turnaround. Send often. 

The last two cabin buildings took off for the woods tonight. Connestee and Lakeside will head out for an evening of fun, pita pizzas, smores, and games around the fire.

Tomorrow we have four more trips heading out the door. Climbing, paddling, hiking, and mountain biking will all be taking some guys out for another adventure.

Enjoy the pictures
