Too many great memories...

Posted by Jud Millar on Tue, Jul 6, 2010

Week two of second session has gone by in a flash. So much has occurred this past week that it’s sometimes hard to remember all of the great memories. Sunday was the SMA Dance, and that was a great time. Everyone dressed the theme: Black and White and the decorations were top notch. All of the kids showed off their best moves and sang along to some good tunes to end the evening. Monday morning was a long day for everyone here at camp. We hit the road around 8am to head off for our white water rafting extravaganza. Each raft successfully completed the 7 miles stretch of white water and got to cool off in the river. It was a grand time! Three overnights took place this past week: mountain biking, waterskiing, and canoeing. All the campers beat the heat and spent most of their day on the water or hydrating on their bike trial. A few spills here and there but all the campers made it safely back to tell the tale.  True champions these campers are!

Last night was the SMA Carnival with live music from our SMA Band. The band played quite a selection of music and caught everyone’s attention with their enthusiasm and passionate singing. Kids enjoyed winning prizes and playing the carnival games. The ring toss, blackjack and the soccer kick were quite popular. We finished the evening off last night with the SMA Dating game. It’s always nice sending happy campers off to bed after having a good laugh! 

Today unfortunately is the last day of regular activities for 2nd Session, but the campers are going out with a bang! A few are off canoeing, some are scattered playing touch rugby, and others are out on the boat hitting the lake.  Campers are even tackling the 1000 step hike today for one last hoo-rah! As the evening winds down, campers are scrambling to finish prepping for their acts for tonight’s Talent show! I’ve heard a few rumors that some acts should be real jaw-droppers, and I anxiously await tonight’s performances. Tomorrow everybody will start packing,  perform one last skit for bunk clean out, and then head out to the lake for Crew Olympics! One last candle ceremony is in store and of course the final Slideshow presentation in the barn to close out the night. These campers were such a blast to be around, and they truly make me love every second of my job. 

3rd Session will be here before we know it….. 

Warm Hugs
