Color Fun Run & 5k was EPIC

It was another GREAT day at camp. We all spent this morning taking our camp bunk pics. The kids were lined up at the beach ready to go. It was a beautiful morning as every bunk gathered together and took that snap shot in time of their bunk in summer 2021. Once we all took care of the bunk pic business it was all about the afternoon color run and 5k. The campers were ready to go, dressed in white at the starting line right at the go-kart track. The ran down the hill reaching milestones where they were doused in colored powder. They ran under the Chenny sign out to the Camp sign at the end of Camp Rd. All along the way, getting splashed with every color of the rainbow. After they reached the camp sign it was time to turn around and head back to camp where they stopped at the fire truck waiting to spray them with water. It was an absolute blast of a day. Our older kids (collegiate and up) had an opportunity to run a 5K and they LOVED it. They too hit the markers and were doused with colored powder. The views on that run were outstanding and the challenge of the course was so much fun for the kids who ran the 5k. Every camper came back after their race and asked to do this again. To run in the countryside is breathtaking and we are so happy to have our campers take advantage of the benefits running offers. Today was a home run of a day. Just so much fun.

Our GC’s got back in the morning after they went camping yesterday. They loved their experience. Putting up their tents, cooking their food on the open fire, taking a gorgeous nature walk, making s’mores, sitting around the campfire laughing with friends and bonding with your camp sisters and brothers. When the kids rolled off the buses this morning, they looked exhausted and ready for a shower but each and every one of them said it was an amazing time they had together. The GC’s know that this is their last camper summer together as group and they have fully taken advantage of every second, every moment they have left at camp. They have embraced this summer and found joy together as a division. Watching them find so much happiness from a night making s’mores around a campfire, sleeping in tents and bonding together as a group is what this is all about. Memories they will never forget and friendships that impact our lives. We know these last 2 and a half weeks will fly by but our GC’s will cherish every last moment.
