“If All the Rain Drops Were Lemon Drops and Gum Drops…”

Howdy from a happy Tajar! We spent the morning adventuring in the great outdoors on the Low Ropes Course and at Silver Run Falls where girls swam and hiked! I hopped on the back of the van to venture out of camp for a little while, but as soon as we got to the end of the camp

Beneath the Carolina Blue Sky

What a beautiful day from start to finish! With the exception of a little drizzle in the afternoon, the weather was warm, the sun was inviting, and the clear sky provided a beautiful backdrop to a full day of activities! From morning until lunch, we had a fun time horsin’ around

Hip Hip Hooray for Opening Day!

The sounds of happy campers and tires rolling down the camp road are practically music to my ears! While I can’t believe we’re already in August Session, I am so beyond excited that the August campers are here! The little gals are both new to camp and seasoned Merrie-Woode girls,

Until We Meet Again Beneath Old Bald

Today was a bittersweet day, as it was the final full day of the session as well as the day of Final Shows. In the morning, after some quite necessary packing time, we had Castle at Chapel where recognitions were given to the campers that have passed levels in activities and

Sit Down, John!

Wow. Okay, so Tajar finally got to see the play and because of that, this post is a tad later than usual, and for that I am sorry! I am so full of joy. Being Tajar means I’m lucky enough to sit in on dress rehearsals and photo calls, but it still blows me away to see the final

Lights, Camera, Action!

Curtains opened at 7:30 pm sharp and the cast of “1776” blew us away. I can’t speak on behalf of the audience, because, truth be told, Tajar sees the play tomorrow night. But based on the cheering and applause echoing off the mountain side, I imagine it was a crowd favorite. I’ll

All Good Things Come to an End

After a tear jerking Evening Program (Vespers, nonetheless), we all sat in Chapel for an extra moment or so, reflecting on what camp meant to each and every one of us. For me (Tajar or not) camp is my place to be freely myself, have an open arena to fail, and have the support

Sunday Funday

In case you’re in the mood to cry, there’s a whopping 6 (six) (yes…six??!!) days of camp left. Okay, now that I’ve blotted my tears, let’s recap today! We began with the quintessential Sunday breakfast of quiche and cinnamon rolls (a personal favorite), and then headed off to an

Swimming, Boating, and Hiding Too!

As I aroused from my treetop perch this morning, I could tell it wasn’t going to be a typical Saturday at camp.  Nobody was heading to their usual activities.  Instead, I saw everybody heading for the waterfront in their bathing suits carrying towels and water bottles.  It turns
