On Saturday evening, we had a storm that produced some great photos. I believe these rainbows and lightning bolts are omens of a fantastic summer. OK, here is my interpetation: the rainbow suggests nature, hope and harmony; the lightning bolt symbolizes spontaneity and high energy.
That feels like camp to me!
Yesterday seems to confirm that we are on the right path: it was such a source of joy.
We loved seeing the faces of new campers as well as the returning campers at drop-off. It is also fun to see the faces of smiling parents - even if only for a minute or two.
I was delighted to see the joy and excitement from our new staff. We have been so excited about this group as it came together this Spring. Over the past 2 weeks, they have proven to be committed and caring, focused and fun.
Campers came together into groups and began to form new friendships. I always marvel at how quickly kiddos adapt and make new connections (frankly, I am even a little jeolous).
Our first evening activity was a blaze of action and we had our first camp-wide Torchlight (evening gathering) of the summer.
We ended the day with each cabin having a 10-15 minute period of reflection and sharing.
Simply put, a great start!
Here is one more photo from Saturday evening.
