Party Like It’s Banquet

It was our last Kind Camper for summer 2023 and these campers were so deserving of this incredible honor. All these campers were nominated by their friends who were so excited to share what special selfless act their friends did and we absolutely love calling their name and seeing how happy they are to be selected. The pride on their faces is priceless. Being kind costs absolutely nothing and the payoff is huge. We have been surrounded by kind campers all summer long and our sincere hope is that they all bring that kindness home and spread it everywhere they go. You should be so beyond proud of these incredibly kind kids.

As the sun was setting over Fiddle Lake, we were all dressed up in our best outfits and headed to the beach as everyone took pictures together with friends & counselors. Everyone looked beautiful and handsome. The vibe was insane and just so full of joy. Kids stood on the dock, arm in arm smiling for that group picture that will be looked at a million times as soon they return home only to remind us of this very night.  It was a night that had a tangible feeling attached to it – we looked gorgeous, felt happy and it showed on every person here at camp.  Living free and happy is how we choose to live up here. This night was perfect and as they walked into the Lodge for banquet dinner we walked on the yellow brick road looking for the Emerald City. There is no place like home and there is no place like Chenny.  We ate delicious food, sang at the top of our lungs and danced together and everyone felt the love in the Lodge.

After dinner, it was into Shields Hall for our Counselor of the Year awards. We don’t just highlight our campers awesomeness but tonight was our opportunity to celebrate our outstanding Counselors of the Year. We are inspired by these incredible counselors who have put their heart and soul into providing a great summer for your kids. Congratulations to our brilliant and talented staff. We love them and so do your kids:

After the Counselor Awards, it was party time and we danced all night long. Shields Hall was full of campers who let loose and danced until 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. Campers headed back to their bunks loaded up with LED party sticks, unicorn headbands, T-shirts, baseball hats, glow rings and light up cat 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. Your kids danced all night long and this summer has ended with a party like no other. One more day to go!
