Wow that was fast! It seems that as soon as the families arrived they packed up and went home again. Family Camp #1 was an amazing success. The weather was fantastic and the programs were second to none. It was hard to beleive that for many of the counselors this was their very first Camp Trillium program. The quality of the camp fires and evening programs were that of seasoned veterans. A big “Ahhhhhhh Good Job” to the whole staff team. Keep up the good work. The only down note was that we had to cancel the Dunes on Wednesday due to high winds. However, we rescheduled for the next day and it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon. Make sure you give our Podcast from Family Camp #1 a listen for more details on the week that was.
The day finally came that all the staff have been anticipating for the past 2 weeks since they first arrived….the day the campers arrived. On Monday 15 families arrived at OuR Island and met their counselors, most of whom were dressed as farm animals. We have a great mix of new and returning families this week as well as new and returning staff. The summer is now finally here! Many of the counselors barely slept a wink as they were full of anticipation for the first campers of the summer to arrive. So far we have one night in the books and nearly half the camp got up for Polar Dip this morning. Currently everyone is just finishing up their swim tests and getting ready for Free For Alls……that reminds me…..I gotta run…..It’s Free For All Time!
