Orienting ourselves to camp… again!

Sunday, July 24th, 2016


Hello on this beautiful, sunny Orientation Day! Humming Bird here! We have had SUCH a wonderful time today, let me go through the schedule…

We awoke today for the first time as complete cabins, and rushed to the dining hall for the first Bagel Sunday of the session! Delicious! Once we were good and full with our bagels and soft boiled eggs, we split off by cabins, and everyone signed up for classes, took swim evaluations at either the lake or the pool, and got their heads checked and photos taken! Folks at home, check your mail within the coming week, to see pictures of all your happy campers here in the Valley!

In the in-between time, cabins played some getting-to-know-you games, had nice, long rest periods, and of course enjoyed some delicious lunch! And don’t worry, everyone– we’ve taken plenty of hydration breaks on this busy, sunny day!

What’s left? Well, we’ve got Evening Meeting coming up soon, followed by a yummy dinner, and then we’ll gather for the first time this session at the foot of Tipi Hill, where we’ll all walk together up to our Pinegrove. We’ll sing songs together, we’ll have a few laughs, and we’ll bask in the joy of each other’s company as we gaze into the beautiful fire. I can’t wait!

That’s all I’ve got for you today! Stay tuned tomorrow for more on the FIRST DAY OF CLASSES!! Should be a good one! I’m off to practice my Pinegrove tune…

Humming along,

Humming Bird
