July 20 - 24, 2015 and Information for Next Week
We welcomed our second 4 week campers on Monday.
On Wednesday, we had our Jr. Bring a Friend and After Camp Dance and Pizza Party. We had a great turn out and enjoyed extra time in the pool after camp.
Thursday, the Sr. campers went to Thunderbird Bowling Lanes to spend the afternoon bowling.
On Friday, The Philadelphia Inquirer spent the morning learning about the awesome programs and activities we have here at camp. The journalist and photographer interviewed campers and counselors and took pictures for their article. We will inform you when we know the day the article will run.
Friday afternoon was a scream! We dressed up in our favorite Halloween costumes, had a parade and went trick or treating around camp. Camper showtime was great as always and the pool was refreshing.
Olympic Week starts on Monday! The theme is still being kept a secret but campers will learn about it at our opening ceremonies on Monday morning.
During Olympic Week: Tuesday campers are to wear their team color (red or white-to be disclosed on Monday). Wednesday, campers wear the opposite team color. Thursday campers wear their team color. On Friday, campers wear something relating to their team theme. An email will be sent out explaining this further on Monday afternoon.
