Good afternoon, folks!! Humming Bird here to inform you that WE FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY HAVE CAMPERS, PEOPLE!!!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL! THEY ARE HERE! THEY ARE HERE! THEY ARE HERE!
We counselors have been out and about in the front and back yards, playing guitar, singing, making friendship bracelets, crafting nametags, and GREETING CAMPER FAMILIES, OF COURSE! Our campers are sloooooooooooooooooooooowly filtering in by car, as the rest of us wait in anticipation for the next set of headlights to amble its way down Camp Road and stop promptly in front of the office.
As for the campers who aren’t arriving by car, we sent chaperones out yesterday to pick them up from their planes, trains and automobiles, and deliver them safely back to HVC. We’ve received word that our New York buses are AHEAD OF SCHEDULE! (There’s a first!) And our Portland, New Haven and Boston buses are also on their way– we should receive the rest of our campers around dinnertime. Until then, we’re crafting our crafts, swinging our swings, and music-ing our music, waiting around camp with open arms!
Enjoy these photos of our happy campers– and STAY TUNED FOR MORE as our cabins fill up, and our friends return to us here at camp! I, personally, cannot wait to inform you of ALL the exciting things happening on camp as our first session kicks into high gear– beginning with opening night skits tonight (when we tell the campers about the classes they can take– in the form of funny skits) and ORIENTATION DAY TOMORROW! I’ll give you some more updates on things as they unfold, so keep checking in!
The sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful, and so is the sight of a yard full of campers!
