Cheerio, everyone! We’re so excited that we got to kick off Coed Camp today! It’s so great to have boys back in camp, and we delighted in seeing all the new smiling faces today, even in the cooler, rainier weather we got. After meeting their cabins, campers headed to the dining hall for a meal of delicious hotdogs, chips, and lemonade.

After eating, we played a campwide game of Counselor Hunt, an evening program in which one counselor from each cabin dresses up in a costume and hides somewhere around camp, awarding cabins a number of points if they’re found. The campers had a great time competing, while also getting a tour of camp buildings and areas as they searched. Following the game, we had “Store”, a time when campers are allowed a drink and ice cream or candy while dancing the night away!

We had lots of fun together tonight, then slowed things down with our opening ceremony, where we began the week by talking to campers about positive traits the ideal Cheerio camper should exhibit. We hope that these great kids will learn and grow throughout this week of camp!
