There is something quite special about heading out of camp on trips with your campies. Everyone is wearing their camp shirts and we all load the buses to some amazing fun places. It unifies us as a group as we exit our gates for some fantastic adventures. Each group had a ball today as they enjoyed themselves beyond imagination.

Our Cherokee campers had a great day at the State park as they played in the lake, tossed the ball around, relaxed on their towels, listened to music and spent a perfect afternoon soaking in the sun. Then is was back to camp for a giant pizza party and movie night. They got cozy in their jammies and relaxed with a  summer night Flick. Freshman and Juniors watched Minions in the Chen-A-Plex and Middies enjoyed Mall Cop 2 in the Hangout.

Inters and Collegiates spent their trip day at Dorney Park. The rode roller coasters, played arcade games, enjoyed all the park offered and spent their time having a ball. When they came back to camp tonight and exited the buses, some of them you couldn’t see as their giant stuffed animals they won were bigger than them. Lots of smiles, laughs and great times were had by Mohican campers.

Navajo campers got wet wild and wacky at Camel beach. The temperature was hot and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day to spend at a water park. After they got swooshed around the giant toilet bowl and played in the wave pool, it was off to the outlets for some retail therapy and our campers shopped till they dropped. An incredible afternoon for our Navajo campers today.

All our kids are back home at camp safe and sound. It’s just about 1:00am and at this time of  night, camp is quiet, peaceful, awkwardly silent and still. It’s a far cry from when everyone is up and running around camp full of life, full of love, full of spirit and energy. So at least for the next handful of hours, your children are soundly sleeping, exhausted from their adventures day. You know that feeling when it’s so much fun to go on a trip but there is nothing quite like coming home!!!  Life is Great at Camp Chen-A-Wanda.
