There is nothing quite like camp traditions and this one is on the top of the list. Girls Sing is the ultimate camp tradition on girls side. Girls have been practicing for days and the pride each division has for making it great is unreal. For days now, you see groups of girls rehearsing their dance, perfecting the moves and memorizing their songs. It defines Chenny and there isn’t a girl on campus that isn’t fully engaged with this event. The big night is tonight and from what we see, the show will be a night to remember. We love everything about Girls Sing!!!

The night was all about Girls Sing and it was INCREDIBLE. It is a summer favorite and defines our camp tradition and spirit. Each division worked so hard on their dances and songs and it showed. When boys side can sit and support girls side for 2 hours, you know something special is happening. The support boys side gives girls side is just breathtaking. From our adorable freshmen through our crazy talented and passionate CIT’s, they all brought the house down. I could never bring justice to describing the bonds these girls have with one another but watching them up on stage perform together allows us all to witness it for ourselves. It is a true sisterhood that will stay with each and every one of them throughout their lives. Each division picked a theme, danced and sang from their heart and soul. The emotion that was felt by every single camper and staff inside Shield’s Hall could have moved mountains. There were chills upon chills as each division wrote and sang their alma mater to an audience that listened to every single word. They held hands and did it together and this is why the bonds are so tight. This shared tradition creates memories that will never fade. They will sing their songs for years to come and will never forget a word.
Congratulations goes out to the Inter girls for winning lower camp Sing this year. It was Inter the Pride Land as their Lion King theme was a huge hit. Hakuna Matada to these amazingly talented girls. The emotions that happened as the CIT’s took the was unreal. From the first dance to their alma mater it was all about our 2019 CIT’s. They won for upper camp but the honor of winning wasn’t the highlight. Their connection to each other, the beautiful friendships that they have nurtured and the respect and love they have for one another was center stage tonight. As we all watched this unfold in front of our eyes, you couldn’t help get emotional and cry with joy to watch these amazing young women perform together for the last time on our stage. What a night it was and to bear witness to this long standing camp tradition of Girls Sing was an honor.
Now matter where each girl will go in their life, being a part of Girls Sing helps define their youth. They wont forget the songs they sing or the themes they chose. No matter how much time passes and how many years go by, Girls Sing will always stay forever in their hearts.
