We have all seen the viral videos of families running to get their campers as the whistle blows on visiting day at every sleep away summer camp. What that video didn’t show, was the intense emotion you felt as you embraced your child after being without them for the past three weeks. The joy, actually it was pure elation you had as you held them close again. It is such a privilege to watch you embrace your children and the sweetness of that moment never gets old. The tears, the smiles from the heart and the “oh my god, you’ve grown” are truly magical moments to witness. We watched your sons leap into your arms and saw your daughters hug you so tight she didn’t want to let go and your face said it all. We could actually see your heart explode with love as you reunited with your kids. You have given your children their wings and for the last three weeks we have watched them soar and we hope today you did too.
These past three weeks, they have overcome homesickness, worked out issues with friends, found their voice, discovered their independence and proved to themselves they are stronger than they ever thought. That is why you sent to them to us and we hope today you had a brief glimpse to the wonderful life they have created here at Chen-A-Wanda.
We hope you enjoyed your day and truly appreciate all of your support. Your kind warm words leave indelible marks on our hearts and keep us doing what we do best and that is care for, guide, inspire and keep your children safe. It takes a village to run our village and we have the best staff in the game. We hope you felt the love our staff gives your kids every single day . We even made sure the weather just perfect for your day with your kids. It is a joy getting up to bugles and playing with your children all day long. We have four more weeks of pure bliss here and we aren’t going to waste a moment of it. Continue enjoying the pictures and videos of what is to come because one thing is for sure we will be having a ball up here and loving every minute.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making today so very special and for being a part of our Camp Chen-A-Wanda Family.
