Tomorrow, you will inevitably be hearing about your child’s “best friends.” It’s hard to believe, especially for some of our first year campers that in just four weeks a “best friend” can be made. The truth is when you live with someone, sleep next to someone, play with someone, 24 hours a day, seven days week, it creates a bond that is indescribable. You know more about your cabin mates than you do most people in your life. You can name their favorite breakfast cereal, favorite canteen treat, and favorite evening activity. You know whether they get up early or go to bed late. You know what books they read, what games they play and what music they listen to. And while many of these things may seem superficial, they do all add up to a bond that is a camp “best friend.” And we can say honestly that it is these friends that will stay with your children for their entire lives. They will be the first ones they share happy news with and the shoulders they cry on when they need them. We are so happy to see our children out interacting, laughing, singing, and playing together all day and night. We can’t wait to see what the second half of the summer holds for them and watch them continue to strengthen these bonds and make new ones!
Well parents, it is here. The moment you have been waiting for. VISTING DAY!!! You will be able to see your kids, their friends, and the summer home that they have made for themselves. We do expect it to be a hot day so please plan accordingly. The pool will be open, and there is plenty of shade for you to escape the heat without escaping your children. We cannot wait to see all of you tomorrow!!!
Yours in Camping,
Jay and Adam
