We Welcome you To Camp Woodland, We are mighty glad you’re here!……

The campers are finally here and Woodland is complete!  We had a great day welcoming campers all day long, getting them quickly settled into their cabins, and starting the cabin unity process.  There was a little Woodland dew (rained all afternoon), but it did not get our campers down!  After an amazing lunch of Chef Dan’s homemade macaroni and cheese, the girls headed to their cabins and finished unpacking during rest hour.  After rest hour they created cabin cheers and played “getting to know you games” with other cabins.   

Hilltop’s cheer was very creative.  They changed the words from “Zippity do dah”  to describe how happy they were to be together in Hilltop.

I have to admit I was very jealous of the Tamarack Cabin.  By suppertime they had painted their nails and made bows for their hair. These are not just any bows.  Theses bows were made from different colors of duct tape.  So creative!! The girls looked great and I think they may use the bows as their cabin unity theme throughout the entire summer.

The youngest girls are living in Sunrise!  They are between 7 and 8 years old and are having a blast getting to know each other.  The youngest girls are my favorite because they are seeing everything for the very first time:

·      The excitement of playing games with the older girls

·      Their hesitation to try something new and then commanding the activity by the end of the summer

·      Their pure joy and happiness when they receive “camper of the day”

At suppertime they enjoyed eating pizza and singing camp songs.  Most of the older girls know the songs, so it was fun to watch the younger girls learning the words for the first time.  After supper the girls played circle games and were off to bed after they received theirs snack.

We had a big today and cannot wait to continue the fun!
