What to say about 'Imaginarium'? It was such a fantastic week. We had over 50 (wow!) amazing campers and 20 staff, making it an absolutely huge camp! Thanks to our cooks as well, for serving us up some amazing food! This camp could never have happened without you all!
If this camp did anything, I think it lived up to our motto, "Small Camp, Big Spirit". The kids and staff were so energetic and enthusiastic this week, despite some very chilly weather! With raucous rounds of Jesus Loves Me in the mess hall, to the energy and creativity during Craft sessions, we used every moment to really explore our theme 'Imaginarium'.
Highlights of the week included SS warm-fuzzies and 'harmonized' good-nights, all-day Unit Day on Wednesday, Dundee's fabled 'Story' about campers becoming superheroes, singing Frozen songs before bed, and a visit from the 'Skunk and Raccoon Ladies".
We'd also like to give a special shout-out to our staff of the week...drum roll please...Lutz! Lutz is camp's proverbial 'go-to-guy', and he definitely lived up to it by coming in to work this week. Thanks again Lutzy, for an awesome week and being the amazing help you always are.
There are so many stories from this week, we could probably write for hours about it! But, unfortunately we can't, as there are more weeks going on and more adventures to be had. We'll get some photos uploaded to our Gallery asap, so check back if you want to see some photos we took during the week! One last thanks to everyone for the amazing week! Hope to see you all back for a second helping of awesome next year!

So our first ever week of Sr. Coed has come to a close, and what a week it was! We were lucky enough to have almost 40 campers at the week, and 18 full-time staff to play games; do sports, musical theatre and dance; and hang out. We'd like to extend an extra special thank you to our amazing cooks that took time out of their schedules to come out and provide us with great food!
Everyone in Musical Theatre was lucky enough to have Mgomp as our Musical Theatre Director this year! We chose to present the song "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls, that included a dramatic interpretation during the instrumental part in the middle. We'll try and upload the video to our Gallery as soon as possible, so check back regularly to see some great acting and singing talent!
Verv was kind enough to take a week off to teach us Beach Volleyball! Volleyball had a huge turnout this week and some great skills were developed by all! The group was so supportive and we couldn't ask for a better group to make up our Sr Co-ed volleyball team.
Dance this week was made up of about 8 campers and staff, but the small numbers made the dance even longer and more polished! Tondue produced an almost 4 minute long dance comprised of a number of styles including jazz, contemporary, lyrical...and the harlem shake. We'll be uploading a video of it within the next few weeks, so make sure you check our Gallery for updates!
Loafster ran our Soccer program again this summer, and this week had a great turnout! With drills and miniature games, the kids learned essential soccer skills as well as teamwork abilities! The most popular game was World Cup, which was perfectly timed with the one going on in Brazil. Though the glory may not have been as large as Germany's win, our awesome players had the opportunity to compete and give the goalies a run for their money!
We were also blessed with some amazing (hopefully) future staff! We had 12 Sr. Campers this year, all of whom in one year's time may be your new CITs! You guys are super awesome, and we hope you had a great week with both Vector and J'Fro! Make sure you check the website early next year for news on hiring, because we'd love to have all of you back to join our staff team!
We'd also like to thank our staff of the week, Peetree! Peetree did so much for us this week, and as the program co-ordinator and one of the directors for the summer, she made our week run so smoothly! We couldn't ask for a better partner in crime and amazing friend!
Thanks again to all our amazing staff and campers, for one of the smoothest and best weeks we could ever ask for! We'll be uploading all the photos as soon as we're done sleeping off a week of craziness and fun!
