Yawn! Late sleep for all, as campers emerged from their sugar-induced cocoons and awoke to a bright and sunny day at Owego. Was yesterday just a dream? Hugs and kisses from Moms and Dads, care packages of favorite snacks, Magic Cards, Jibbitz, and quality time with siblings…our first in-person Visiting Day since 2019 was a huge success! Today, it’s back to business as we start a new week at camp. The anticipation of what’s to come is palpable.
This coming week, the Seniors and Hi-Seniors embark on their out-of-camp overnight trips. On Tuesday, the 9th graders will depart for New England and the 10th and 11th graders will head to Niagara Falls. The following day, 7th graders will leave for the Adirondacks and the 8th graders make their way to the Finger Lakes Region. All trips are scheduled to return to camp on Thursday evening.
While the upper camp is away, the Juniors will play! There are a number of special activities planned for the Juniors this coming week, aside from the awesomeness of having the entire camp to themselves. Stay tuned to this blog for more details on Switch Day and other exciting events!
Back to today, a typical fantastic Monday at camp. While the Seniors and Hi-Seniors packed for their trips, the Juniors had inspection and set off for first period choice. Those campers who are in the second session show, “Wicked Hamilton,” reported to the stage to meet with Scotty and kick off rehearsals. In ten short days, the show will make its debut. Between now and then, the cast will be working NON-STOP.
With just 18 days remaining, there is still so much to do and so many memories to be made. The good news is that tomorrow is another camp day, just waiting to happen!
