First off, I apologize for the lack of blogs and photos this week…hopefully, I can make it up to you! 🙂
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday have been absolutely wonderful in Timbercrest land! There have been so many activities that the campers and staff are absolutely exhausted. Being exhausted at camp always means that you’ve been doing a lot! My mom and dad always knew that I had a great time at camp by the amount of dirty clothes (and how dirty they were) I came home with. So, if your daughter comes home with smelly and dirty clothes… you will know she had a great time.
Our campers had all kinds of horseback riding time, lots of time on our Summit Express (our giant slide and climbing inflatables in the lake), and even a super crazy slip & slide activity on Tuesday night. The rest of our week has been dry, and we completely escaped the tornado that came through Western New York Thursday. Not a drop of rain at all down here, who knew that sometimes a line of storms would be just like lake effect snow? It stayed in the mid-80s but with a breeze which some thought would bring the storms… nope! Though we did take shelter in the program center (our designated tornado shelter), we were spared any storm at all. So our campers continued the day!
Tonight’s campfire brought a lot of tears to our Junior CITs that are leaving us tomorrow. Actually, the majority of our campers were crying tonight… a good sign that tomorrow is coming too quickly. Lots of memories were made this week, and the girls will remember them forever. One of our unit counselors, Dilly, made her debut as “The Lorax” during my reading of the book tonight. Congratulations to Dilly, it’s been on her bucket list for some time! 🙂
Please check out our Flickr page for more photos that I’ve uploaded. Have a good night, I’ll try and get another blog in as our Session 2 comes to a close.
