It’s official, MAC has ended for the summer! We’re sorry to see everyone go. =[
As you settle in at home, campers, check out today’s pictures! We have the pictures from peace wars and closing ceremonies… and they’re all on Flickr, so check that out! But in the meantime, here are some! First off, the new hit collection, Portraits from Peace Wars!
JAC also had their last day today. The JAC campers went rock climbing at the barn!
And then everybody got together at Burgin to attend final ceremonies and exchange some tearful goodbyes.
Goodbye, everyone! We’ll miss you, and we hope to see you next year!
Wow, what a day. All three camps: MAC, JAC and ESL spent the day at Hershey Park…and everyone had a blast!!!! It’s hard to find words to describe all the fun that was had by the Mercersburg Summer Campers. Check out the gallery below and see for yourselves:
This morning I photographed the MAC campers in their last enrichment classes this session. In “Old School Science Lab,” Ovie helped the kids make slime. Each camper had the choice of which color to make their sticky goo, and then they played with it for the rest of the class. Check out the crazy fun!
I also stopped by wizard training where they were drawing their own hybrid magical creature. Here’s a clip of one of the campers describing his creation:
Then, this evening, everyone played Capture the Counselor!!! This is a pretty important game at Mercersburg… the counselors hide in trees, bushes, and other nooks and crannys around campus and the campers run around looking for them. Once the counselors are found and tagged, they are then dragged off to jail. Each counselor is worth a certain number of points and whichever team (the Hurricanes or the Tornadoes) finds the most counselors wins! Some of the counselors put up a good fight though…
I also stopped some campers while they were searching and got some group shots:
All in all, it was an awesome day for the MAC-sters. And I have to say that I’m pretty excited for tomorrow’s adventures…The campers don’t know what’s in store for them yet but they find out I’m sure they’ll be thrilled!!
In other news, I stopped by the ESL classrooms this afternoon to find them hard at work:
And after meeting up with ESL, I photographed JAC as they did a hockey/tennis rotation AND some abstract painting:
The kids really are having a lot of fun. They are getting close with each other and with the counselors and are trying lots of new activities every day. It’s exciting to see everyone getting along and pushing themselves to try new things!
