The rain is over! The sky is blue, the sun shines brightly, and all is well with the world! Everything changed in an instant yesterday afternoon at 1:29 PM. We were eating lunch and as the sun broke through the clouds the entire camp erupted in a huge cheer! So exciting!
We enjoyed our afternoon classes with gusto, campers and counselors alike soaking up the sun with delight. Every detail of the afternoon stood out as special: the watermelon was sweeter, the free time more relaxing,the pizza more savory. Even flag lowering was fun (the girls giggling and hardly able to stand still). Team Fires have never been more enthusiastic. Everyone went to sleep quickly, completely tired out and looking forward to the next day.
Today we celebrate the successful completion of our first week at camp with a big carnival! The girls absolutely LOVE the carnival… it has always rated as the second most favorite EP of the session (first is Banquet), and it is easy to see why. Our carnival is a blow out celebration of food and fun. We have significantly upgraded the carnival this year, more food, more rides, more time. It is going to be a blast!
A few things that I consider big deals:
So today begins the one week countdown. One week from yesterday we will be home, a fact that catches everyone off guard. Each class has a laser focus on finishing projects and passing levels. Each night will feature bigger and bigger EP’s. We feel a sense of accomplishment and a sense of excitement, minutes pass like seconds and days disappear in an instant. Camp is going great and we are loving every minute!
Thanks for checking in. Don’t worry about a thing!
