Sadie the Llama back again!
What a great first day at HVC! It was so wonderful to hear the camp bustling with happy voices despite the schivitz! (It never rains at Hidden Valley, it’s only a heavy schvitz…) We got a lot accomplished today to set ourselves up for the session. Everyone signed up for classes and had their pictures taken. Each cabin got in the lake or pool for a swim eval and took a tour around camp with their counselors and AWACs! Very exciting!
We also took time to do some special activities in our cabin groups. Here’s the inside scoop on what everyone was up to…Haley’s Comet headed to the Beehive to do glass blowing, Wombles and French Quarter played yard games, Forbidden Planet and Bermuda Triangle visited our farm animals and camp store, and Shangri-La and Fiddler’s Green made glass coasters and pendants with pro-staff Philippe in the fusing studio. Paquatahnee, Gimme Shelter, Valhalla and Camelot spent the afternoon hanging out and playing games in the backyard. Alive! signed up for their specialty classes and received their sketchbooks for the summer. Taj Mahal and Bermuda Triangle worked on a mosaics piece with pro-staff member Adele, Loons went on Peter’s secret tour (if you know, you know), and Avalon orbited Planet Meg.
Tonight we’ll head up to Pinegrove, a special spot where we open and close our time together. We’ll share songs and stories and reflect on all we will be able to create as a community this summer.
Can’t wait to fill you in on the scoop tomorrow!
