The Voice


As we have been in our camp bubble for just shy of 3 weeks now, there is no denying what is coming around the corner. The excitement is building as we are getting ready for visiting day and the campers can’t wait to see their families roll through those gates in just 2 days. It was a fun busy day here as campers were making beautiful signs to welcome their families and proudly display their bunks. Arts & Crafts was full of happy smiling faces creating works of art for you to see and enjoy. Boys camp was busy practicing for their big show tomorrow night, Boys Lip Sync. Each division worked on perfecting their dance and lip sync. Each group worked in unison as they came together as a division preparing to entertain us all. We can’t to see them up on stage.  Boys Lip Sync is a highlight of the summer and from the looks of it, this year won’t disappoint.

It was another great day for our Chenny athletes as they played hard and had fun.

There is one thing that cannot be denied and it’s that we have some extremely talented campers here at Camp Chen-A-Wanda. We are in search for The Voice and this is not an easy fete with the ginormous pool of talent we have here. Tonight was the Live Battle Round and we were all blown away with the talent up on our stage. Each coach chose a song for their battling pairs who entertained us all with their big beautiful voices. Based on tonights performances, each coach chose the performers who they wanted to continue on their team to the final round. It was a night to remember and the list of 24 performances was brought down to the top 12. Congratulations to those who are moving on to the final round. In just a few weeks, these 12 acts will perform a song of their choice live in front of all us for one last time. The final vote will be made by all the campers and the winner will be announced that same night!

As one of the contestants exited the stage after her performance, she looked exhilarated and summed it up when she hugged her teammate who she just battled and said, “That was so much fun and you were just amazing up there. We did GREAT!”  The joy for performing in front of a packed house will forever be a highlight for these campers. We provide the stage and the moment to shine is all theirs. There is nothing quite like seeing a camper embrace those moments. It’s breathtaking and beautiful.
