Greetings from Wildwood. Though very warm we are having lots of fun here in Rindge! We are filling our days with lots of sunscreen, water, and smiles.
Tonight was “Bring a Letter to Dinner” night, so you should be seeing some mail from your camper in the next couple of days. It is also Unit Night. The campers are all over camp having fun with their units. The younger campers are out on the waterfront having a beach night and the older campers are hiking to First Point and swimming from the beach at that campsite. Everyone will end their night with tasty s’mores.
Over the weekend, 2-week campers were able to go on overnights with their units. LIT embarks on a trip to Mount Greylock today. With a wonderful group of Leaders-in-Training and four terrific Junior Counselors, we’re getting some great support all around camp, including our discovery groups, open activity times, and evening programs.
Some of the favorite camp activities this week have been Scottish Dancing, Stock Market, and Hubbard Gladiators. In Scottish dancing, some of our international staff were able to teach some dances from their home counties. In Hubbard Pond Gladiators, campers were able to search for the biggest and scariest aquatic insect they could find in the ponding area.
Tomorrow we are excited to celebrate the 4th of July with the camp community. We have Nature Groups in the morning and field and water games in the afternoon. I know the campers will love sharing the holiday with our international staff.
We’ll be sure to post pictures of 4th of July and much more in the weeks to come!
