Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun!
It has been a glorious few days in the woods of Windsor Mountain – complete with blue skies and sunshine! Campers have the swing of things and are busy doing all sorts of activities. Right now, I can hear the sounds of drumming with Maroghini, squeals of delight as campers take off on the zip line, and battle cries from CANOE WARS down at the water front. It is a typical camp day indeed!
On Sunday, we opened the Windsor Mountain Olympics, where the camp was divided into 12 countries who will compete over the next few weeks in various games, from friendship bracelet making to swimming. Country names included “Piece-o-pineapplea,” “Garupia,” “Hadannastan,” “Mmmm-Bobway” and the “Disbanned People of the Silver Mountains.” Each country created a beautiful flag, wrote and performed their national anthem, and provided their country’s history in a historical reenactment.
Over the last few days, campers have enjoyed Bunk Night, Capture the Flag, and Large Living Unit Night, including a Scottish Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) dance for the oldest campers, Gatorball for the cabin boys and SPACE OLYMPICS for the dorm girls. Last night, we solved a camp who-dun-it mystery with a camp-wide game of CLUE. Today is the first day of the third block of classes. PHOTOS
Speaking of the third block of classes (well, not really but I needed some kind of transition), we still have space in Family Camp that runs from August 22-26. If you want to relive your youth (only this time with your kids) and go back to camp, join us for fun, games, and a great way to wind down the summer with those you love most. Please email or call me if you would like some more information. It is a blast, and we’d love to see you.
