Hey, everybody! It’s good to see you again! Right now, I’m at the school library hitting the books. Or, maybe I actually just caught a book!
Anyway, this time of year is always cool. World Series baseball is here, and football is in full swing. But most of all, I love Halloween. It is one of my favorite holidays, because it reminds me so much of camp. However, even though I get to dress up at Halloween, it is still not the same as dressing up for cabin inspection. Remember those? I’m sure you all are practicing cleaning your rooms at home, so you can hit a home run during cabin inspection this upcoming summer.

Senior Counselor Emily Weiss recalls one particular night filled with bonding on the lodge and an impromptu dance party…
It was the last night before everyone went home and the group had just finished doing affirmation circles. Every night over the past two weeks, all the junior girls in adventure camp had mini dance parties before going to bed, and since it was the last night, we decided that we would have one last fiesta. All the girls were initially melancholy because it was our last night, but when we turned on the jams, the hall erupted. We put on some oldies like “Twist and Shout” along with some more recent pop hits. Counselors and campers alike were having an awesome time grooving to the beats. Just when we didn’t think the madness couldn’t get any more fun, the “Hoedown Throwdown” came on and all of us begged counselor Cassie to teach us the moves. Pop it, Lock it, Polka dot it, Countrify it, Hip-Hop it… we finally got it down pat and then all of the senior girls came over and made the dance party even larger. We stayed up later than we were supposed to but it was soooo much fun. All of us were dancing and singing so loud that I’m sure that everyone in the building could hear us. I know it was a night the girls will never forget.
