We woke up this morning to some delightful news. Spokin, the food allergy app, had profiled us on their website in a list of "Top Food Allergy-Friendly Overnight Camps". For a very long time we have been proud to be the summer home for boys and girls allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, mustard, dairy, eggs, citrus, mustard, and more! Click on the image below to see what they said. And thanks to Spokin for recognizing our efforts to keep our friends with food allergies safe!
Today seemed to be a day of trying new things at Camp. Our Evergreen Freshmen went on a day trip with Adventure Dave, and spent two hours jumping off of a bridge into a local body of water (with life jackets on, of course!), and then took turns swinging on a rope swing into a lake. One girl leapt off of the bridge 5 times! Our Kenwood Juniors had their first play practice, and started off by learning how to participate in improvisational games. I watched as they took turns creating new characters and scenes, building off of each other’s creativity and enthusiasm. They are now very excited to be a part of this year’s play. I also spent some time in the music building today and saw campers taking lessons in guitar, drums and piano for the very first time. A number of campers also went off of the zip line for the first time, including a couple of older campers who had been unsure about trying it in years past.
