Chenny’s Got Talent

Today was one of those summer days we wish wouldn’t end. Having been here for only 11 days, its incredible to see how close we get in such a short period of time . We all wait so long to spend 50 days here and as each day passes, the bonds get stronger and the feelings of pure bliss have wrapped up us all in this incredible huge Chenny blanket. At this point in the summer, everyone seems to cherish the little things that truly matter the most. Our relationships have grown stronger by the day and our new friends have officially become our family and old friends have continued to enrich our lives.

There is something that sticks out to me every summer as I watch these relationships grow and that is benefit of a hug. Something so simple and easy as a hug or a piggyback ride or holding a hand is just what we do, daily. It’s human connection that we all crave and here is where we get it. We may not even realize how much we need it until we get here and standing next to your friend or counselor seems awkward without sitting on their lap, holding their hands or giving them a hug. You have to see it to believe it and living in this environment breeds it. There isn’t a day that I don’t hug your children and I live for the hugs I get back. It’s the thread that makes us closer and the benefits are profound. How different the world be if getting and giving hugs happened like they happen here at camp. You can’t help but smile as you watch campers walk arm in arm to an activity. It warms you from the inside out. It brings our friendships to a very different level than with our home friends. It is why our camp friends become our family. It’s why we love this place so much. It’s why we call Chenny HOME!

We have some insanely talented kids here and tonight was the big audition show. There were dancers, singers, pianists, drummers, stand up comics and other incredible talents that dazzled us with their gifts. We put together a video montage of the auditions and the kids loved it. They shined so bright and we loved that they shared their talent with everyone in Shields Hall tonight. We will soon be announcing who will make it to the live show so stay tuned for the big announcement. Our kids love being the stage and we love providing to them. Hollywood here they come!!!!!

Chenny out.
