WHAT MAKES CAMP, CAMP! June 26, 2018 CAMPFIRES: One of the most special things about camp includes our weekly campfires. Most Fridays as a whole camp we surround the campfire, sing songs, listen to speeches and truly reflect on how lucky we all are to share this special place and call it home. This past Friday those who gave speeches at the campfire where 5 year campers. At Marimeta, being a 5 year camper is a huge honor. The 5 year campers talked about their memories along with the feelings they get each time they come back to camp. The feeling at Marimeta is unlike any other. We are a family. Campfires are the time that we can look around and feel a sense of thankfulness rush over ourselves. We look to our right and see our best friend and then look to our left and see the counselors we look up to. The feeling that comes over all of us every Friday is something that cannot be explained in words. There is nothing like Marimeta campfires and the special nights we all share on Fridays. FRIENDS: Camp friends will always make the best friends. The bonds that are created at Marimeta are unlike any other type of bond. We share a love for the delicious food, fun activities and friendly competition. At camp we can truly feel comfortable and it’s the time we can come out of our shells and truly be ourselves. The friendships we have at camp are with us as we grow, from Cabin One to Senior Cabin, and you canalways count on a summer sister. Camp friends are forever friends. The anticipation of camp we all have throughout the 10 months of the year is something so special that we are all able to share. Camp friends will never go away and will be there for you no matter what time of year it is. Friendships made at camp are irreplaceable bonds that we are all lucky to have.
