Camp Timbercrest has kicked off its fifth and final session of the year. This week there are five programs.
Everyone arrived at camp from 1-3 this afternoon. Once they arrived, their parents helped get them settled into their units. Once they were settled, the campers headed to the waterfront to complete their swim tests. Blue caps are the most advanced swimmers, yellow caps are in the middle, and then red caps.
This week will be carnival themed! Timbercrest will be getting into the spirit by playing carnival themed games throughout the week and making cotton candy.
To conclude the night, everyone attended Opening Campfire. At Opening Campfire, everyone comes together as a camp for the first time. Songs are sung and bonds are created. For some of these girls, they will be making friendships that will last a lifetime.
Despite communication problems along the river, we have managed to get word that the Canoeing Along the Allegheny Reservoir group is safe, sound and having fun! Stay tuned for lots more updates and photos upon their return.
Be sure to check back in tomorrow to see all of the exciting activities. Click here to see photos of the campers moving in and of Opening Campfire.
