Every Ending Leads to a New Beginning July 17, 2016 Parents weekend brings many emotions to camp. One of the saddest parts of the past weekend is having to say goodbye to all of our First Session campers. The buses left camp on Friday with many campers eyes filled with tears…but happy memories will linger with these girls for a long time to come. We hope that you hear many a story about friends they have made, new foods they have tried, activities they have learned and problems they have solved. Sometimes these memories take a little time for the girls to talk about as they have experienced such a huge amount in their 4 weeks at camp. They will share them as they are ready…we ask that you allow the girls time to process their experience and talk about it in their own time. The girls who are full session campers had a fantastic weekend with their parents. And Saturday night there were tears once more…this time because the girls had to say goodbye to Mom and Dad. A new session is beginning…and with this brings the promise of new friendships, new activities and in many cases, new counselors to share in the girls camp journey. We encourage a culture of change and growth…and our girls are embracing this more and more each year. Our campers who have arrived at camp for our second session are very excited! The whole session lies ahead for these girls…with unlimited potential for personal growth. Camp truly is a place where campers can learn about themselves…and work on being the best version of themselves. Our program is structured to help nurture this development and the girls are just beginning their own personal camp journeys. In this strange world that we live in, where we are constantly surrounded by bad news, camp fulfills a more important role than ever before. Our campers are able to just be kids once again. The outside world fades away into the background, and our little camp world is what is important. We cherish this time with the girls and we promise to teach the girls that when things end it is the new beginnings that bring the promise of even greater memories.
