Nothing Could Be Finer…

Thankful to be in Carolina in the morning! It feels like summer is in full swing as we enter our third week of Main session and I am ready to face the weeks ahead.  This morning, I dropped by Scene Study to congratulate the newly cast actors and the three camper directors and

Thankful for Thursdays

Thursdays at Merrie-Woode are the best days, not just because all days at Merrie-Woode are fantastic, but also because of pizza, Bag Supper, Movie Night, and overall Thursday shenanigans! Today was no different and I spent the morning rocking out with the Jazz dance class and

Going Bananas for a Talented Bunch

Today was a hot, hot day on the shores of Lake Fairfield, but we at camp know the best ways to stay cool: drink lots of water, take a dip in the lake, and stay positive! Today I fought the heat by visiting the Dance Studio to watch the Hip Hop class work on their final show

My Merrie Tis of Thee, Sweet Woode of Liberty

Today was Independence Day, the one day we trade in our greens and greys for red, white, and blue. This morning, even before the sun rose above Old Bald, I hopped on the back of a horse and rode through camp with Riding Staff announcing that it was the Fourth of July. After

Sync It Up!

Today couldn’t have been any better; the sun was shining, the lake was clean (thanks to all of the campers picking the lilies for decoration), and at the end of the day, we all came together for one of the favorite evening programs. In the morning I dropped by the tennis courts

Sunday Folly and Merrie-ment

What a day, what a day! I always love Sundays for the food and the company, but today was extra special because we had so many visitors! It was so good to see family, friends, and alumnae return to camp for a service brought to us by John Brantley and a good fried chicken lunch.

July: a Gem of a Month

What a beautiful day to be at camp on this first day of July! Today, I made my way over to the Jazz dance class and practiced my best turns. Afterwards, I visited swimming down on the lake where the campers were learning freestyle. The water looked very inviting, but I managed to

Clouds but No Frowns

Today may have had gloomy weather, but spirits were high here at Merrie-Woode. This morning, I visited the canoeing and sailing classes down at the docks and watched them practice their sculling, even in the drizzly weather. I then made my way up to King Arthur’s Court which was

Nothing Could Be Finer

The days seems to be going by faster as we get further into the session, but Thursdays always make me pause and enjoy the moments just a bit more. This morning I visited the archery field and sat in on a few rounds of practice. I’m not so bad an archer myself, but I’d much rather

You Can Never Have Too Much Fun or Wear Too Much Sunscreen

Another beautiful day on Lake Fairfield and I can feel the session coming into full swing. The sun was shining, the campers were buzzing with energy, and even the bullfrogs seemed to chug-a-wump a bit louder. Today I journeyed up to the compost pile with the Earthworks class to
