Flags, Flags, and More Flags

We’re still catching up on rest from our Fourth of July Extravaganza! But, we’re slowly making our way back into our activities, projects, and regular schedule.  It’s hard to believe that two of the five weeks of this session have passed already.  The cabin, offering our

A Sweet Day in Sapphire

We’re all worn out around here after an awesome Fourth of July! We fell asleep to the bursting sound of fireworks in the Sapphire sky coming from all around the valley! It was quite the show. Today was extra sweet: it was ice cream day! Cabins who’ve kept themselves neat, clean,

Happy Birthday, America!

What’s one thing America, Camp, and I have in common? We’ve all aged well! On America’s 243rd birthday, camp looked extra pretty and we had a patriotic party! From waffles and berries for breakfast to pizza for lunch and BBQ for dinner, the food was great from start to finish. We

My Heart Says Yes…and the Rain…Also Says Yes

A true Merrie-Woode girl isn’t afraid of a little rain here and there. The show must go on. Tonight’s Evening program was Scavenger Hunt, and we sent the girls on a mission to find all sorts of hidden clues around camp! We split into green and grey teams and set off on our quest!

We Llove Llamas

Surprise! The llamas were here today. With those furry and fun creatures, comes a whole wealth of knowledge about them, too. Today we learned about how llama eating habits can affect their digestive system, and the more aggressive of an eater a llama is, the higher chance it has

Whose Line is it Anyway?

Hello July! The warm welcomes today from the second half of the year were much appreciated under Old Bald! We played in the water today, both in and outside of camp, and enjoyed the first day of this month to the fullest extent! Up in the air, Low Ropes took off today with the

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Sundays are the best days in camp because we get to go on so many field trips (weather permitting), eat fried chicken (a classic), have a beautiful Chapel service, and have Cookout and Campfire in the same night! Oh, not to mention, we wake up to quiche and cinnamon rolls…talk

Dodge Ball and Sunshine

The beautiful weather continues here in the mountains!  It was gorgeous again and made for a great day to be swimming, boating, and spending time on and in the water.  The 2019 Would-Bes were seen perfecting their skills and I watched intently from the roof of Lily Pad in hopes

Ice Cream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!

What a day! The Would Bes took on High Ropes together, Mountaineering went on a hike and did the Climbing Wall, Riding took a trail ride, the warm sun made for an extra nice day on the docks, and Advanced Costuming is on their way to making the best “1776” costumes ever! Down at

Comfy and So Ko Zee

Movie Night means popcorn and PJs (and Skittles if you have braces!) and relaxing with your favorite gal pals. It’s one of the best ways to unwind after a full day at camp! Speaking of today…it was Pizza Thursday! The JCs made extra cheesy, extra yummy, and, I bet, extra healthy
