Tonight we close out another fantastic week at Camp Friendship. It has been a wild one. This week we have had great activities such as mountain boarding, pottery, archery, waterpolo, and loads more. Just visit out bunk1 photo galleries to peek at all of the fun we’ve had. According to our CF Newspaper we even had a Big Foot sighting according to Eric Vetter. I know I’m keeping my eyes open for Big Foot. John our resident Widerness Man has prepared to catch our very own Big Foot and I’ll be sure to keep you updated as I learn more.
While this week has been quite HOT, our campers have been sticking to their waterbottles and are working hard on their water consumption during meals. A mixture of heat and rain have hit us this week but with a little camp spirit our activities and programming have gone none stop. Riding Camp made a good show of showing their Ride Pride this week. Our various Orange, Green, Red Rides to name a few are proud to be riding here at Camp Friendship and we are proud to have them.
Evening activities have been exemplary with Powder Fairies and a Scavenger Hunt/Ice Cream Party as some of the highlights. On Wednesday night we had our weekly dance for all of camp. It was a riot with our theme being “Toga Party”. Let’s just say our linens closet got raided and our laundry staff will be working a little extra getting all those “togas” washed.
Our CIT’s had a fun night out of camp this week. After much hard work our Counselors In Training went out to dinner and a nice evening out of camp with yours trully. I’m sure they think having me as their driver was the highlight of the evening but I rather enjoyed my chicken wrap. Our CIT’s have been doing a great job over the last few weeks and I hope they enjoyed their free evening this week.
Today we brought back our Friday Musical Lunches. I can personally say they are a great success. Tom Winfield’s selection of tunes were quite a diverse treat, from the classic Jungle Book song “the bear necessities” to some Jack Johnsoneque tunes I didn’t recognize but I’ll be sure to look into. The dining hall had a great lunch and a great atmosphere. Lunch got everyone in a good mood for the rest of the day.
Tonight we are preparing for camp fire as we do every Friday night. Camp Friendship will close out another week and prepare to welcome new campers for another fun session. While many of our campers are staying over with us over the weekend for another week we are also welcoming quite a few new campers on Sunday. We will aslo be seeing a Whitewater Rafting and River Kayak trip going out on Monday morning. It’s already shaping up to be a fun-filled week.
See you next week.
