GOING ONCE, TWICE, SOLD!

This morning I awoke from my deep and dreamy sleep to an early morning rain showe.r.  As I attempted to dry off, I saw the campers head to the Dining Hall in a multitude of colored rain jackets.  This morning a canoe river headed out of camp followed by the two day.  As everyone

AS WE SANG THESE OLD SWEET SONGS…

Thanks to the extra half an hour of sleep, I woke up feeling extra rejuvenated. Sunday is my favorite day of the week, so I couldn’t wait for the day to begin. This morning at Chapel, John Brantley spoke about the spirit of Merrie-Woode, traditions, and the reasons why we come

RISE AND SHINE

I woke up to the wake up bell promptly at 8:00 to start my day. I knew it was going to be a great day because there were French toast sticks for breakfast. After all, no day could ever go awry after devouring French toast sticks (with extra syrup, of course). With sticky tucks, I

THE PEPPIEST CAMP

Today was another classic day at camp filled with many activities and fun trips. The day started with a trip leaving for Chimney Top, a hike which provides a 360 degree view of the area. I can only imagine how far their eyes could travel, sighting the breathtaking landscape of

AND HERE WE’D LIKE TO STAY FOR GOOD

It was another folly filled day here at camp! As I sat in the rafters this evening, the smell of popcorn wafted through Castle.  “The Lego Movie” was shown for Movie Night, and the message that everyone is special in their own way was a fantastic take-away for camp. I woke up

THE WIND IN THE PINES

Sounds of laughter echoed throughout the cabin lines as the girls started getting ready for the day. I snatched a slice of French toast from the Dining Hall this morning on the way to Castle where the cabin of Bum’s Rest gave our daily devotion. The virtue of the day was Vision,

GOING BACK IS THE BEST OF ALL

The Range Ranger kindly reminded me yesterday evening that today was Opening Day for the Main Session.  I was just curling up in a tree out at the Inn Site about to go to sleep (perhaps a bit too late) when I heard cars already rolling down the gravel path to park in front of the

KNOW YOU HAVE A CAROLINA FRIEND

  It is hard to believe that today was the final day of camp.  Instead of normal activities, the girls were able to go back to their cabins and begin the packing process.  From the roof of the Program Office, I saw a peculiar line of trunks starting to form near the door.  I

A PLACE WE’RE ALL TOGETHER, FRIENDS FOR ALL THE TIME

  I woke up this morning to a beautiful day in the tree tops and made my way down to the dining hall. After breakfast, I saw the final river trip of the session leave camp for the Upper French Broad.  I then went around camp to see the campers in their last day of

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!

Wow, what a day!  I just got back from evening program and tonight’s evening program was The Little Prince!  The drama staff wowed all of camp with this amazing adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novel.  Of course I had to sneak into the back, but we were greeted by planets
