We offer different special events each session from Carnival Day, Beach Party, Cardboard and Duct Tape Boat Races, to Camp Spam. Once each session, the entire camp sleeps under the stars on Outpost Night, roasting marshmallows and telling stories around the campfire. Pairs of cabin groups are matched by grade level for Outpost Night and they go together one of our campsites along the creek. Of course, we also include the traditional favorites: Campfire, Talent Show, Capture the Flag and themed dance parties.
Closing night is always emotional with lots of tears, hugs, sharing of addresses, and then the decade’s old tradition of Counselor Serenade. Ask any alumnus, and they will tell you, Counselor Serenade is forever engrained in their heart. After the campers are tucked in and the lights are out, the counselors armed with guitars, tour the cabin area and sing “good bye” to the campers. It is a beautiful and special tradition, one that every camper can’t wait to participate in when they are on staff. The words filtering out of the cabins from the campers, “love you”, “miss you”, “sing more”, “I’ll be back”, wrap everyone in a warm blanket of friendship and belonging.
