Camp Feeds the Soul

It was late wake-up today and we all loved the extra sleep, especially after Olympics. It was so nice to hear the bugle at 8:30am and the kids loved it too. We all rolled out of bed and headed to the Lodge still half asleep but what I saw made my day. There was a group of  boys walking to breakfast and they were all arm in arm heading into the lodge. They couldn’t couldn’t be physically closer and there was no conversation just a group of kids arm in arm walking to get breakfast. They were in step and clearly felt a closeness to literally walk to breakfast as a interlocked group. The fact that this was boys made it even sweeter. Human connection and closeness is why friendships here are as solid as they are. What happens here at Camp just feeds the soul. It has to be seen to be believed but trust us when say this is why Life is Great at Chen-A-Wanda.

Tonight was so much fun. One of those nights that every kid loved. It was divisional night and every group loved their activity. Freshman – Collegiates were in Shields playing Let’s Make a Deal – a show that the majority have never heard of but they had so much fun. It was just like game we all know and love. Who got closest to the price of an item, picking door number 1,2 or 3 and of course the Zonks! They had an absolute blast tonight. The Supers spent their night playing backyard games with a firepit and of course S’Mores. The Seniors had Cake Wars, the GC’s had card night and the CIT’s enjoyed hibachi at the Chenny Shack. It was night so perfect that when you walked around camp, all you saw was happy smiling kids. No TV or devices in sight. Just another incredible Chenny night.

Chenny out.
