So many special moments make up a day at our overnight camp in NH

This was just another typical day here at our overnight camp in New Hampshire, but that's what I loved about it. A typical Camp day is filled with so many special moments and I thought I'd highlight just a few. 

At morning assembly we celebrated the birthday of a camper and also of Music James. James has been our head of the music department for 5 summers, and over that time he's literally taught hundreds of boys and girls how to play the electric guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards. Most of his days here are spent helping groups of friends form rock bands and practice successfully until they are ready to perform at Hollowpallooza, our music festival on the 5th Saturday of the summer. 

A tradition at our assemblies is that when it's your birthday you get to invite up anyone who has special meaning for you to help lead the singing of our birthday song. The list usually includes bunkmates, former counselors, and maybe a favorite administrator. We turned it a bit on its head today and asked "please come up and celebrate James if he has helped you be ready to perform in Hollowpallooza". This is how many campers and staff came forward. 

No matter what age you start here this place becomes your second home.

Incredible Little Moments At Camp

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 22, 2013 3:18:00 AM

You may have noticed that I did not post a blog entry for yesterday. Sadly, after finishing a piece last night around 1:30am my beloved laptop let out a loud gasp (literally, it sounded almost human), splashed an array of colors across the screen, and then ceased to function anymore. My new one arrives tomorrow, and I am currently borrowing Scott's. Thankfully, my most recent time machine backup was earlier in the afternoon, so there was no real loss. It was more of an inconvenience...except for the photos and video that I shot yesterday that I wanted to share with you. I hope when my harddrive is fully transferred tomorrow that I am able to recover some of what I wanted to show you. In the meantime I'll try and highlight some of the incredible little moments of the last 48 hours.
