Spoon on Nose

Spoon on Nose

 

Yesterday was the opening day of 2nd term.  The new campers arrived and are all totally involved with the activities and the daily routine.

Although this may not exactly be routine, it is joyful to first learn how to hang a spoon from your nose.

Play Day with Camp Alleghany

Playday 1Saturday night was Play Day.  More than 100 girls arrived before dinner to join our Senior Camp boys for and evening of food, fun, and nervousness.  After dining, everyone gathered in the Play Hall for a great dance with our own DJ’s.  As anxious as the campers are in the beginning, the end of the dance is always bittersweet.

 

 

Sunday Night Campfire

Campfire 1Sunday evening is the time for campfire.  Boys can tell jokes, perform in a skit, sing a song, or display their talents.  The show always ends with the telling of a Woofus story.
