Nothing Like a Chenny 4th of July

There is something quite special spending the 4th of July at camp. It is a full day of celebrations. Everyone is dressed in Red, White & Blue, faces painted, tutus on and camp is decorated proudly displaying our American pride. Everyone felt the spirit of today. You couldn’t help but part of it, we all were. Seeing our youngest Freshman to our oldest Wanderer all dressed up and proudly showing their American pride is awe inspiring.

The spirit and energy today was following us all throughout the day as we had a giant dance party in The Lodge at lunch. Everyone was up on his or her seats singing and dancing. We didn’t want it stop. If you have ever been in a room singing at the top of your lungs and just letting loose by dancing as if no one in the world is watching you, you can understand how we didn’t want lunch to end today.

It was an incredible day here at Chenny but we all knew that the night was the best part and it did not disappoint. The weather was ideal and we all enjoyed an incredible BBQ dinner, which we all ate outside as the sun shined down on each one of us. It was one of those nights that everyone was just in a great mood. There was this vibe here at camp that was happy and contagious. A perfect summer night with hamburgers, hotdogs, watermelon, ice pops and your friends and counselors right by your side. It was magical and we all knew it.

As dusk turned into night, we all headed up to the outdoor pavilion decked head to toe with glow sticks galore & flashing headbands.  We started the night with the biggest dance party to get us going and that it did. The countdown began and the first firework shot up in the air and was spectacular. I truly don’t know what is more impressive to watch; the sky light up with a rainbow of colorful fireworks or the look of amazement on your children’s faces as they watch with such anticipation for each firework to unveil above them.  They were just in amazement of what they were seeing and watching them enjoy it so, was a gift they gave to us. No matter if you are 7 or 77, 4th of July fireworks amaze us but spending this day with your camp family makes today a summer standout. Hope you all had a great 4th because we sure did.
