OD Blog July, 1 – 8

Posted by on July 17, 2010

Dear OD Log,
Today Leah, who was hostess woke me up. I got out of bed really excited because I had to do one of my favorite things at camp: ring the bell!! After washing my hands and setting the tables I had a wonderful breakfast which gave me a lot of energy so I could stay alive, alert, awake, enthusiastic, all day long. During assembly Emma got camper of the day, congratulations!! I went with Barb and Denise for cabin inspections, good job treetops! After that I went back into the office because I had a lot of work too do. I learned how to send bunk notes and I sent letters home. I think there should be an activity to learn how to send letters, but anyway, after a busy morning at the office the bell rang and after lunch and rest hour, I went to the water front for ski help, but I didn’t get in because Maria was the only one who skied, great job! After giving canteen I went back to my cabin to enjoy my hour off and I shared with Claire, Leah, and Suzanne who was counselor for a day… I really enjoyed my 1st time as OD, but that’s all for now.

Dear OD Log,
It was the 2nd of July and all was quiet until I rang the bell and disrupted the girls’ beauty sleep (thanks Paige H.) Waking up Claire was easy and we hopped, but the food we couldn’t try it until everyone was there. For Assembly, everyone would leap and we called Starshine with the buzzer and had the flag put up. I had the privilege of being OD and Counselor of the Day so I Taught Dance in the Rec Hall and got all sweaty. With Denise I went on Cabin Inspection and Sunnyside won! Congrats once again). I learnt to send mail and Bunk Notes with JoAnne and Mrs. J. Lunch was yummy while canteen was quite empty, some tried to trick me for double canteen, Caroline… There was a HUGE spider in there but before Arantxa was quite jumpy. Jumpy because it was her first time skiing and she got up, CONGRATS! Kate knee boarded spectacularly and soon I took a nice shower. After dinner, we organized the movie area for a good cause… Move night with Alvin and the Chipmunks… Major movie stars!!! Twizzlers were scrumptious and I helped Treetops in their cabins, Thanks for the drawings Grace and Ana Pau. Soon after we all went to the cabin and fell asleep instantly.
Goodnight and Sweet Dreams Camp Woodland
Until next time OD Log,
Dear OD Log,
Today I woke up extra early and rang the wake up bell! Then I woke up the hostess. After assembly I waited in the office with Sam because the door was locked. When JoAnne finally gave Sam the key I got around to cabin inspections. Good job everyone that got 30’s!! Next, I sorted all the mail and announced who got packages at lunch, and no Haley, your package did not come. Then I carried 5 boxes of candy to the canteen. During 5th hour there was a giant spider by the candy window and Leah killed it. Thanks Girl!! Finally my OD duties ended with a wonderful hour off, where I got ready for the CIT social!!!

Dear OD Log,
Well, I started my first OD day off by waking the camp up with the bell…well, I didn’t think that one through…it was 4th of July and everyone gets woken up by the horses. ..Whoops!!! Well, I had breakfast (cinnamon rolls, yum!) then during cabin cleanup we got ready for our CIT game and our re-enactment of the Boston tea party! So, during vespers I did cabin inspections (way to go Aquarius) Then we had lunch and played some forth of July games. Then it was the red, white, and BOOM campfire at towering pines, good job everyone!! I’m so glad we got to do fireworks because that’s my favorite part! I was so glad I got to see my brother again (cough cough wink wink Mira!!) Well, overall it was a great day! I hope my next day is as fun!!

Dear OD log:
Today I woke up to my favorite sound in the world, “Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep,” my alarm clock. I dragged myself out of bed to ring the bell and wake up Jenny in Starshine, who luckily was already awake. Then, I did cabin inspections after assembly, during which Sunnyside got a 30. Again. Honestly Sunnysiders, that’s probably the cleanest cabin I’ve ever seen. Keep it up girl! Then I sorted the mail and restocked the canteen with soda. And let me tell you, golf cart duties are great as everyone says they are, or maybe it was because I was with Hannah and it was a pretty crazy ride. When I got back Joanne and Susan told me that we were going to do a missing person drill, which meant that I got to be the lucky duck that got to ring the bell for 15 minutes. Unfortunately the drill was cancelled due to some woodland dew, which also meant no canteen during Rec-Swim. Then came my glorious hour off during which I took a long hot shower, did my laundry, and admittedly sang and danced to some 3Oh!3. Overall it was a pretty good 1st day as OD.

Dear OD log!
I’m a tough one to wake up, so this morning was brutal. As I saw that Fer was hostess, I sighed in relief knowing I didn’t have to storm into someone else’s cabin. Cabin Clean-Up approached, so I went around to all the cabins letting them know about lip sync. Nice job Silver Birch! Work it Elena! Being a guidette was a blast! Then I actually got to do some real OD work! Nice job Sunnyside! And no Silver Birch, you didn’t get a 30 at Callas request, I promise! By the way, sorry Jaime and Hannah, I’m aware my questions can get really frustrating!! And yes Haley, your package finally came! Woohoo! Ski help was awesome, don’t worry Grace, I know skiing is still a little hard for you! I’ll always be there! Not going to lie, I’m a little afraid of the canteen shack. Shanti, you make me laugh, “we don’t have Take 5’s in Mexico! Dinner was great they dint put meat in the sauce! Score! And, once again, I made Haley die of laughter, I’m on a roll!! I went snail hunting for evening activity with Amanda and Suzanne and we had tea with a loon named Phillip.
Much Love, Rasta Pasta!
P.S. Sup Sup bro?!
P.P.S. I found you an acorn; cherish it!!

Dear OD log,
Today I went to ring the wake-up bell, then went to Tamarack to check if Hannah was awake who later gave Arantxa camper of the day. Congrats! After assembly I went to sort the mail and do some other office duties. Best part of my day! It was super fun because Lindsay got to chill in the office with me because of her hurt ankle. Way to trip on nothing Lindsay. I got to clean the whole lodge Wahoo!! Best arm workout of my life: vacuuming the rug in the lodge. Then I got to staple letters home together. We were supposed to go on our canoe trip but the weather didn’t quite co-operate. I got to give out canteen for 5th hour since it stopped raining! By the way, all the cabins were super clean. I’m impressed, good job girlies!!

Dear OD log,
Its my first day of being OD, woohoo!! Today I woke up and rang the wake-up bell. Then I went to Treetops to wake up Joanna, the happy hostess, who was thankfully already awake. At assembly Joanna gave Corinne camper of the day! Congrats! Then I went to the office and sorted mail until Denise came to get me for cabin inspections. Great job Sunnyside and Treetops girls! Hilltop, come on, we can do better than that! After inspections I cleaned the lodge. I swear that vacuum is alive! Fish Friday was lunch, and it was amazing! After a much-needed quiet rest hour it was time to do ski help which meant I got to ski twice! Yeah! Good job Emma, Arantxa, and Kira for getting up on the first try! Next it was time for my luxurious hour off. I took a nice long shower, blasted some music, and wrote letters. Overall it was an exciting day as OD.

Dear OD Log,

I rand the bell and went to wake up Ceci, but she was already awake. When I came back to the cabin to sleep again I remembered we were hoppers. After assembly I checked the cabins. Good job Tamarack and Sunnyside! Keep it up! I sorted out the mail with Joanne’s help. I forgot how to do everything. I learned how to send Bunk Notes… yeah! After that Joanne and Mrs. J. ran out of chores for me to do so I went to my riding assist class and the girls trotted for the first time in the summer. Congrats! When I went for the thing I saw the chickens and the ducks. I didn’t have to get in the water because it was tubing day so… cool. I gave away canteen and had my hour off.

Well, off for now, xoxo -Ferdinand

Today my cabin mate, Amanda, awakened me early and shivering. I went back to sleep only to have Leah wake me up again. I got out of bed and went up to Hilltop looking for Fer because she was hostess, who later choose Emma as camper of the day. Then at assembly Sunnyside got to put the flag up because their cabin was very clean. Then I headed to the office to sort some stuff and send some Bunk Notes. I also realized that letters home take about three days to collect, as I went on the hunt during rest hour on the search for the Silver Birch’s letters, most of them were good at doing them. Then during my ski help I got in the water during 5th period because Kaitlyn and Grace W. and Grace C. wanted to ski and knee board but I was really of no use because they were all pros. Then for canteen all the girls were claiming that people said they could have double canteen… Regina. After serving, Joanna and I still in the canteen house awaited more campers when my butt started dripping on my legs and it began to become uncomfortable. Then Ria came to the window and I asked her if she liked her counselor and then turned and dashed off which was pretty funny. Then I had my hour off which was good, then assembly and dinner. Evening activity was really fun, I played volleyball and Sam and Grace were the best ball girls I’ve ever seen. Then CIT hour and slept, so overall a good day.

Dear OD Log,

First day of activities yeiii… Today I woke up at 6:30 because my cabin decided to go on a run at that hour, so I stayed in bed for 1 hour and then I went to ring the bell and went to Starshine to wake up Jenny. I wanted to back to bed but we are hoppers so I couldn’t During assembly Carolyn got camper of the day. First I did cabin inspection with Wendy and then I got to do counselor’s profiles and send all the letters home, which I had to re-address because some campers didn’t know how to address their letters. Then we had lunch and a quiet rest-hour, which I enjoyed a lot. Then ski help!!!! Wuuu… It was actually really fun; I got to talk to my friend, Grace W. I did canteen and everything worked out perfect. And it got more than perfect in my hour off in which I took a really hot shower and slept like a baby. Can’t wait to be OD again!

Dear OD Log,

As another summer begins I remember how ridiculously fun being OD is. Jamie woke me up at the crack of dawn to begin the new day, but I accidentally forgot that OD has the enjoyable job of ringing the wake up bell and waking up the hostess. As the morning began, Suzanne gave Caroline camper of the day, GOOD JOB CAROLINE! To start off the day, everyone began activity rotations. I know everyone is excited for the new bunnies. And that new game everyone is raving about, Quotation Fugation? What kind of name is that? Walking around looking for people has nothing to do with a quotation. But I guess it looks pretty fun. It was weird how during Alien Invasion it randomly started pouring. Those Hilltop girls sure looked crazy. Everyone did a great job of singing; I could hear it all the way down at the beach. I looked pretty weird sitting behind the canoes by myself reading when the boaters came by. It’s pretty sad that a 10 year old can run faster than me. And then there was the counselor campfire. Don’t worry Lisa, if I was a TP boy I would’ve totally gone for you! Well that’s all for now, see you next time Camp Woodland!
