We Start the 5th Week of the Summer of 2017!

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 25, 2017 12:24:00 AM

Yesterday was one of the best, most relaxing, happiest Visiting Days I can remember in the last 30 years. And yet as great as it was it had to come to an end. By 3:30 our camp parents were on their way home, and as a community we started preparing for the 5th week of the Summer of 2017.

We're back to basics with the start of week #5 at our overnight camp

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 26, 2016 7:15:46 AM

With an amazing visiting day for parents behind us this morning we woke up and got back to the basics of summer camp. Our counselors went to bed at the same time as our campers so everyone woke up this morning happy and rested, and thrilled to be here for 3 more incredible weeks.

Almost every age group was in camp today, which meant that this was a day of our campers playing sports, making beautiful creations in arts, and having tons of fun at the waterfront and on the ropes course.

Developing 21st century skills leads to lots of tournament wins!

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 29, 2015 2:46:00 AM

Let’s be real: winning is usually more fun than losing. Our campers participate in a whole lot of traveling team sports tournaments during the summer, and it would be great if they won every single game and match, but that’s not particularly realistic. We often play in tournaments with seven or eight camps, and one can reasonably assume that while we will win some we’ll lose some others.

A fun, gorgeous day of activities and adventures at our overnight camp

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 8, 2015 3:01:00 AM

It was a really fun, gorgeous day at our overnight camp in New Hampshire today. Or, at least, it was gorgeous for most of the day. Wherever I walked around campers were having a fantastic time at our activities. In the wood shop our Freshman boys had decided that they wanted to create wooden boats. Counselor Mike showed them a template and how to use it to measure the necessary pieces of wood. Then they spent the period cutting and sanding each piece. This is a long-term project that they are all really excited about. Once completed they plan to have a race down at the water front!

A Beautiful Morning and A Beautiful Day

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 31, 2013 2:55:00 AM

Sometimes it is clear as the sun rises over the lake that it’s going to be a special day at Camp. Today was a beautiful morning and a beautiful day from start to finish. As we woke the kids up at 7:35 the air was crisp with low humidity and nary a cloud in the sky. When I arrived at the Assembly area campers of all ages ran up to me to ask “how pretty is it out today?!” I love how many of our campers notice the beauty that surrounds us here.
