Camp Roads and Campfires

Camp is back in session and a new round of campers has arrived to join us for five weeks of Merrie-ment, frivolity, and fun! I started this exciting day off by waking up in my treehouse home to find that cars were already coming down the camp road at 9:00. Soon, camp was once

Summer Solstice Sayonara

Today is the first official day of summer, which makes the end of the session even more sentimental. Today began in a drizzle, but the excitement of the day seemed to blow the storm away, and we enjoyed the merest sprinkle of rain during the final “Chastle” of the session. I was

Remember, Remember, Even in September

Although today might have been the final day of activities, camp has never seemed more busy and alive! It began with a surprise prank pulled off by the cabin sof Bum’s Rest and Camelot, a prank which turned breakfast in the Dining Hall into a visit to the north Pole for

Have You Roared Today?

Today’s weather matched my feelings—a bit drizzly and with a break for sunset. The drizzly part comes from it being the last day of Monday/Wednesday/Friday classes. I went around to stained glass to see some amazing 3-D projects that absolutely must be put in the art show, and to

Keeping Watch O’er the Mountains High

As we come upon the final Sunday of the session, I am filled with great sadness and reverence for the times we have shared so far this summer. Today being Father’s Day made it no different—seeing the fathers and grandfathers of counselors join us for a Chapel service made me even

Summer Paintin’

Today was a lazy day down by the docks. The sun was warm in the morning so, I lounged around with the boat staff on the lake. Well, I should say that they were on the lake while I was catching rays on the Boathouse roof! Afterwards, I climbed up to my namesake building and joined

In Years To Come

Only six more days to go and these campers sure are making the most of their time. Just walking around camp today, I witnessed two campers pass Bowman in archery, a camper pass Yeoman in riding, and another camper get her roll in kayaking! It warms my furry heart to see the

Terrific, Tremendous, Talented Thursdsay

The only thing better than Thursdays at Merrie-Woode are Thursdays at Thursdays at Merrie-Woode when the sun is shining and Lip Sync Battle is the Evening Program! But before we got to tonight’s events, I passed the morning by wandering around on the docks and the shores of Lake

This Little Light

Today began with a very restful and much needed sleep-in. Nothing quite does the trick like an extra hour of sleep! After Castle in the Dining Hall, I headed off to the Earthworks class at the Nature Nook where the campers were learning the essentials of camping—specifically how

Welcome Bach, Chamber Music!

Tootie bun and Overall Tuesday, my favorite! Not that I have any hair to make Tootie buns with, or that any overalls come with a hole for my tail, but regardless, Tuesdays are still grand! Today I wandered around up to the tennis courts for all-day tennis games! I got dizzy after
