Another camp season is under way! The campers arrived yesterday and we are so excited to have them here for 3 weeks! We love having all of our returning campers back for another year and we also welcomed several new campers to our Grassick family.
Sunday night after our traditional first day supper of hot dogs and beans, we did some introduction activities. I was so proud of the campers as they each introduced themselves by telling us their name, where they were from and two things they liked to do. They used awesome sentences and spoke so confidently!
After introductions, we had our church service with a short lesson and some fun songs. The campers called it an early night to spend some time with their counselors before bed.
Monday was a beautiful day at camp and it was an excellent day. The campers were busy getting acquainted with their schedules, learning waterfront rules and buddy board numbers. There was some awesome soccer skills showing up in rec today.
We got to go in swimming this afternoon. It was a bit chilly at first but the kids all told me that once they got used to it, it was great! It is so nice to be able to go swimming and we definitely have a lot of "fish"!
This evening's activity was the welcome dance. Boy oh boy do we have dancers! There was hardly anyone sitting down. Staff and campers all had a wonderful time listening to the music, dancing and burning off some energy. I'm glad no one complained about my DJ skills - I try to play something for everyone!
We should have some tired campers tucked into bed right now! Hope tomorrow is even better!
