Talented Chenny Kids

It was 3rd period and I walked into ceramics where I saw a group of Middy boys having the best time using the pottery wheel. They were all laughing and so excited to show me their works of art. Some were creating hand made bowls and a few made coasters but why this moment stuck out to me today is because these same boys who were having a ball with clay just got off the field from a serious soccer game they had with their division. Their faces were flushed and they still had sweat running down their cheeks and  these kids went form a fun game of soccer where they ran up and down the field  to sitting down  in Arts & Crafts making a cool clay bowl. They were focused and loved showing me what they were making. This is the Chenny kid in a nut shell. Fierce athletes playing with all their heart, straight to ceramics as they so delicately molded a clay masterpiece. When you think of a well rounded kid who can pop in and out of activities that each equally engage their mind, body and spirit, you think of a Chenny Kid. This is what we do here and this is why your kids love spending their summers at Chenny.

To feel the love in Shields Hall tonight was to be in the presence of something pretty special and moving. When our kids take that stage, no matter if they  play guitar, sing a song or do tricks with their diablo, they receive an ovation of cheers followed by hundreds of people screaming in awe of their performance and courage to take the stage. Can you imagine the feeling of getting that response when you put your talent out their in the Chen-A-Wanda universe? It’s insanely awesome and those kids who performed tonight loved every minute of it. Confidence is built here and support thrives amongst us all. We love making our fellow campers feel the love and tonight was off the charts. We know that for those 20 campers who stood on that stage and entertained us all tonight, they felt the love. We all felt it and you couldn’t help but leave Shields Hall tonight with a huge smile and a happy heart. There is so much talent here that we had to make another Chenny Talent Show for next week. It was an awesome night.
