Happy Wednesday everybody! I know I’m getting very repetitive by saying this but today we had yet another beautiful day in Starrucca, PA . We woke up to sunny skies and warm temps and we reached a high of around 80 degrees by this afternoon. Who could ask for better?
Tomorrow is our 2nd Lazy Day of the session. We are breaking up the camp into 2 groups to go out of camp. Groups 1 & 2 are going to the bowling alley in Binghamton. This bowling alley is a lot of fun because not only can the kids go bowling, but they can also play arcade games, laser tag, bumper cars, virtual simulator machine, and more. It should be tons of fun for our campers. Groups 3 & 4 are going to the movie theater in Deposit to see Spiderman: Far from Home. I’ll post a blog tomorrow once everyone returns from their trips to tell you all about it. The blog will go up later than usual tomorrow because I’m going to take photos at our cookout for dinner. If for any reason it gets rained out then I’ll take pics in the dining room and post them all some time after dinner.
Since tomorrow is Lazy Day and everyone gets to sleep in, tonight is LTB, Late To Bed. We give our campers an extra half hour of curfew to run around the gym and canteen and socialize with their friends (& terrorize their counselors while all hyped up on sugar!!!).
Last night I received a lot of responses from parents regarding yesterday’s riddle. Thank you to all who reached out with their correct answers. Congrats to Meredith W. (and her husband), Rachel B., Adira B., Meredith B., and Lisa A. Here’s a reminder of the riddle: I am the beginning of sorrow and the end of sickness. There’s no happiness without me nor is there sadness. I am always in risk, yet never in danger. What am I? The answer,…drum roll please,…..the letter “S”! Here’s today’s riddle: You can see me in water but I never get wet. What am I?
Tonight’s evening activity is GROUPS. Here’s a breakdown of what everyone will be doing tonight: Girls Groups 1 & 2- Disney Karaoke; Girls Groups 3 & 4- Campfire (can somebody say S’MORES!?!?! Yummy yum yum! I bet you can guess where I’ll be tonight any time between 7:45-8:30pm!); Boys Groups 1 & 2 & 4- Lawn Games (they will be playing backyard BBQ games such as corn hole, frisbee toss, can jam, spike ball, and more); Boys Group 3- Kong Pong & Gaga Conga (“Conga” is just to add a spin on the name).
Since it’s such a beautiful day outside, today’s special feature is WATERFRONT! I apologize that I didn’t have time to go on the motor boat to get photos of kids on waterskies and kneeboards, but there are a whole bunch being posted on Waldo today and tonight. Enjoy and until Lazy Day tomorrow, ILCUTHERE!
