Reality has set in that our last days of summer 2021 are upon us. It is a mix of emotion here at camp as we are organizing for the end. Cleaning out our cubbies and night stands, reminiscing about the last 7 weeks, making plans for winter get togethers and feeling not ready to leave this place. It is really happening and there is just no way to make time stop. We know we all must leave but it’s just so hard. From the Rookies to the GC’s, nobody is ready to step out of this life yet but all great things must come to and end and this summer was most definitely great and what we all needed so desperately.
As the sun was setting over Fiddle Lake, we were all dressed up in our best outfits and headed to center camp where we took pictures together with our friends & counselors. Everyone looked amazing and happy. Divisions stood on the dock, arm in arm smiling for that group picture that will be looked at 1000 times as soon they return home only to remind us of this very night. This night was perfect and our campers enjoyed the most delicious dinner. They feasted on filet or fried chicken sliders and french fries with mac n cheese bites and pigs in a blanket. The kids loved their meal but the big hit was dessert as everyone went crazy for chocolate lava cake. It was an absolute incredible night as we celebrate the most epic summer yet.
After dinner it was off to Shields Hall for our end of the year division Awards. Each Division highlighted the following campers in 3 areas; Honor Camper, Athlete of the Year and All Around Camper. They are truly standout campers and we couldn’t be more proud to highlight and honor them on this great night. To receive an award on this night is the highest honor we can give our campers. These are remarkable campers who deserve all the accolades and praise they were given. We have outstanding campers and tonight the light was bright on the campers we recognized with these extremely prestigious awards. Congratulations to the standout campers. We are so proud to that you are part of the Chenny family.

After the Awards, it was party time and we danced all night long. Shields Hall was full of campers who let loose and danced uuntil the very last song was played. It was a party like no other and we celebrated hard!! It was over the top fun having our last true dance party with our summer family. It’s so hard to believe our summer is over but we definitely went out with a bang. As campers headed back to their bunks full of LED headphones and unicorn headbands, T-shirts, glow rings and light up mickey mouse ears. It was the best way to end a summer like no other and the good vibes were all around tonight. We have every reason to celebrate and that is what we all did tonight. One more day to go!
