Love is an Open Door

Imagine for a moment a world where no electronics existed. There were no tears or heartbreak because you weren’t invited to that party you saw on someones snapchat story or because you weren’t tagged in a picture on Instagram. A world where group texts didn’t exist and that cold isolating screen was replaced with the warmth of your friend laughing at your jokes. You could see his face and feel her emotion when you have conversations together. There is empathy that develops when you see how your words and actions can effect those around you. It isn’t just keys you press to communicate. Camp is the ultimate environment that brings us together rather than keeps us apart. We eat 3 meals a day together and at each table there is conversations happening. No phones to keep us separate or occupied just a table full of human beings sharing a meal. These are the moments that we long for and these moments are why we stay so connected to one another. The freshman boys were not playing on their ipads to keep them busy but better yet, they were having a floss off – a full floss battle to be exact. It was cuteness overload and these kids can floss.

Congratulations again to this morning’s Trivia Winner Noah Kepke for his correct answer of 23 to the question: How many bugles occur on a typical day at Camp Chen-A-Wanda. Noah is our current champion with 2 wins!! This camper is on fire.

Love was in the air as our evening activity was a camp favorite, The Dating Game. We had bachelors and bachelorettes and it was a great night. The laughter coming from Shields Hall was deafening. It is a night we all look forward to. Starting with the freshman all the way to the CIT’s – the questions were awesome and the answers were even better. It was a day full of love here at Chenny. Just doesn’t get better than this.

Chenny out.
