What a glorious opening day!
It really is so wonderful. Admittedly, it isn’t easy (getting up early, walking up the hill, making bunk beds, missing a day at work). Sure, there is a lot of emotion (nerves are keenly felt and first day jitters make it hard to eat). There might have been some misty eyes (saying goodbye is not easy). But the work is worth it! Camp is SO AWESOME!!!
The girls have been waiting all summer for this taste of camping bliss. Their expectations are sky high and their enthusiasm is infectious. The counselors are having a blast (lots of laughter as they are going through the many details that fill our morning).
What we did as soon as you left:
We start regular activities this afternoon… so no “down time”. August campers are all about doing stuff, they like talking but would rather be in a great class. They love getting into camp with a minimum amount of fuss, and who can blame them? Camp is awesome!
Camp is the best place I have ever been. There is a sweetness that is poignant, sweetness formed from simple smiles and joyful moments shared doing awesome adventures. As we live together in harmony we find that life grows richer in all the details. We are sure that your girls will love it here.
Read the blog for details of the days. Things like the weather, the food, the EP’s… they all become big news at camp. By including such details in your letters and emails, you help your girls focus on the good things they are experiencing at camp (not what they are missing at home). FOMO should not be a thing at camp, there is no missing out of anything here!
Thank you for choosing Greystone. Our Centennial Celebration Summer is drawing to a close and it is a pleasure to end it with such a delightful group of girls.
