Helloooo Parents!!!, can you believe this is the last newsletter for 3rd session?? Man the time flies when you’re havin’ fun ‘cause it seems like it was just a few days ago when we started tellin’ ya about everything up here at camp. You guys have done a great job of keepin’ up with all the pics and news articles and I’m gonna warn ya, you might feel a little lost next week when you don’t have this to wait up on or look at first thing in the mornin’. Its ok though, your campers hasn’t gotten to read any of them and they can still log on to look at all the pics from next session if they want too and you guys can sneak on and get your daily fix of crazy facts from camp. (I promise I won’t tell ‘em).
Today was the last day of classes and it all stated off with our advanced canoeing class taking an early trip down to Desoto Falls for breakfast. If you got to look at those pics, you’ll see they enjoyed a beautiful breakfast by the falls with some great scenery.
All the other campers went right to work in their classes getting’ in their last ride down the zip line, on their favorite horse or even enjoyed their last game in sports. Some of the campers took today to get their last practice in for tonights grand performance of Showtime where they got to show the rest of camp everything thay’ve been working on the past two weeks. Be sure to check out all the pics cause you’ll be amazed at everything they learned in such a short time. It was awesome to see the smiles on their faces as they strutted their stuff in front of the rest of camp. We had demonstrations form circus, gymnastics, glee, flag and baton, and more. Be sure to check out all tonights pictures!!
If you’ve been keeping up with all the pics throughout the day (and really…is there any of ya’ll out there that haven’t???) then you’ve probably already seen the pictures from todays tournament against the boys from LMC. Yep, those boys came over here to challenge our lovely ladies to archery and rifelry and let me tell ya folks, your campers didn’t disappoint anyone. I’m happy to let you know that in rifelry our ladies whooped those boys (everyone knows a whoopin is a WHOLE lot worse than just a whipping). Now in the archery tournament (pay attention here…since it is an election year lets see how I can put this for ya). I’m happy to report that our ladies came very close but ended up in second place, while the boys from LMC finished next to last. There, hows that. If you seem confused, you’ll get in a little while. :-)
Well folks its been a wild and wacky two weeks here at camp and tomorrow we’ll end the activities with our grand championship up at the horse tournament and then we’ll all get to see our musical theatre’s performance of “Annie”. I can’t wait to see both of these events, they’re gonna be great and we’ll get the pics to ya’ll as soon as we can once they finish.
Tomorrow night we’ll end the session with our banquet night, or as I call it “Cryfest” since there won’t be a dry eye in the camp when all the girls realize the session is almost over and they’re gonna have to say goodbye to all their new friends. It really is amazing to see just how close all the girls have gotten with their new friends and how important their relationships are to them. We’ll have plenty of pictures from banquet but they won’t go online, instead we’ll have them on a DVD that we’ll have for you when you get here and it will have EVERY single picture you’ve been looking at throughout the whole session. (just in case you haven’t seen enough pictures lately???)
Well folks, its time for me to wind this thing down and say good bye for one last time, but before I do, I really want to thank you for letting us spend the last two weeks with your most prized possession and letting her learn and grow with us here at camp. Its been a special time here and I know you guys can’t wait to see your camper and how much they’ve changed over the course of the session (I know I can’t wait to see my camper when he gets back Saturday!!!) I haven’t even gotten to see any pics the last two weeks!!)
One thing I do want to warn ya bout though (especially you first timers), your campers will be happy to see ya, but that doesn’t mean they’re gonna be happy to leave!! I know its hard to imagine, but it happens all the time. I just wanted to warn ya before you get your feelings hurt on accident.
You guys have a safe trip on your way to camp and we’ll see ya bright and early Friday morning. Be sure to stop by the office and say hi when you get here. I’ll be the one out front that looks like he’s been on the computer as much as you guys have the last two weeks!!!
You guys be careful and we’ll see ya Friday morning
Thanks again and God bless,
LJ and Skadonnelly
