The End Of A Great Third Week At Our Summer Camp In NH
Today, our summer camp in NH said goodbye to a fabulous third week of the summer. Our very happy campers woke up to an absolutely beautiful New Hampshire morning. The weather was mild, and as the sun rose over the lake it quickly burned off a thin layer of fog. This was just around the time that 57 Evergreen campers and their counselors descended on the Evergreen waterfront for their second Polar Swim of the summer. With great glee they lined around the docks, did their jumping jacks, and with the support of Adventure Dave leapt into the brisk morning water.
Today just felt like a wonderfully mellow day. Our very happy campers seemed to enjoy their many activities, but I think that they enjoyed today's rest period even more. The temperature was just right in the cabins, and as I walked from building to building I saw something that surprised me. In both Kenwood and Evergreen there were campers of various ages in all of the bunks. Seniors were playing magic cards with their Inter friends, and Sophomores were playing ping pong with the Juniors. There was a dance party in Cedar lodge with Freshmen, Sophomores, and Seniors, and in front of Hemlock about 50 girls and counselors were lying on towels listening to music. It was wonderfully social, and the mixture of friends of different ages made me smile.
