Humming Bird here! This just in– THERE HAS JUST BEEN A SECOND CANDY DROP! WHAT?!?! YEAH! LITERALLY JUST NOW! I’ve just escaped the wild crowd of campers and staff, who are rioting for candy out on the soccer field! The plane came flying parallel to Camp Road and on, above our all-camp Transportation meeting (BOOOOOOORNING!) As we gathered to hear about our travel plans, preparing to haul our luggage to the front lawn, we heard the engines and turned in confusion to the Great Above, where the metal piñata hung like a beacon! Wow, what a rush! Check out photos!

Other than that, everything seems super boring…. but here we go! We’ve been preparing all day for our departure– we’ve been cleaning and scrubbing and moving things and sitting on stuffed suitcases to make them close! Now, as the shock and excitement is dying down from the second Candy Drop, we’re preparing to move that luggage into the front yard, where it will sleep for the night, until we leave tomorrow.

But let’s not think about leaving quite yet, there’s still so much ahead of us!! Tonight is the LOBSTER BANQUET!! And then it’s PINEGROVE!!! With stuffed bellies, we’ll line up to say our goodbyes up in our beautiful pine grove space. Then we’ll get a good night’s sleep before our 5:00 AM wake up!

We’ve got lots ahead of us, so stay tuned for more tomorrow! By the time I post in the morning, I imagine most of our campers will be safely on the buses home to you folks! We’ll give you updates on the buses’ departures and arrivals, so keep checking in with us here in the Valley!

I’m off now to find my lobster bib!

Humming along,

Humming Bird
