There is something quite special about heading out of camp on trips with your campies. Everyone is wearing their camp shirts and we all load the buses to some amazing fun places. It unifies us as a group as we exit our gates for some fantastic adventures. Each group had a ball today as they enjoyed themselves beyond imagination.
Our Cherokee campers (Freshman,Juniors and Middies) had a great day at the State park as they played in the lake, tossed the ball around, relaxed on their towels, listened to music and spent a perfect afternoon soaking in the sun. A little rain moved in so it was off to a bowling alley followed by a roller skating party. The fun just never ended for our littles. They rolled back into camp and were exhausted from a daw spent well.
Inters thru GC’s spent their trip day at Dorney Park. It was a full day of coasters and rides that the kids enjoyed. Nothing says summer quite like a day at an amusement park. Our campers just had the absolute best day at Dorney. As the kids rolled back into camp and off the buses, they were exhausted but so beyond happy. The kids looked beat but exhilarated, tired yet satisfied. A perfect long and fun day.
The CIT’s spent their day off at Ithaca and Cornell. It’s never too early to scout colleges and Cornell set the bar very high. These raising Juniors were so impressed with the University that studying for their upcoming SAT’s and ACT’s is on their minds.. But first they have to continue enjoying the summer. Plenty of time for school after camp ends but they loved seeing Cornell and hanging in Ithaca. They have the college bug.
All campers are back at camp safe and sound and exhausted from their fun day out. We have a late wake up tomorrow to get some extra zzzzz’s and enjoy a an extra 45 minutes of sleep. The kids went bonkers when we announced it on their buses and cheered in appreciation. Morale is high here and the next big celebration is when you all come to join us on Saturday. Visiting Day is just 4 days away and we all can’t wait.
