THE ARRIVAL

IMG_5748IMG_5779Toes attached to legs attached to summer staff clad in bright green staff shirts tapped in anticipation and excitement for the arrival of 46 campers ready for the adventures of the week to come. 3:30 rolled around on this Sunday afternoon and the campers arrived! while parents wished them sweat farewells councilors welcomed to their new homes for the week in the cabins of Tall Timber.

The excitement started right off the bat as campers and councilors alike gathered in the meadow to run, scream, tie themselves in knots, and get to know each other, there was fun to be had by all but it did not stop there. After a scrumptious dinner all gathered at the A-frame for some exciting songs, welcoming speeches, and most importantly, staff intro skit night, where all staff and councilors try their best to be the biggest and most glorious fool of the night for the sake of campers entertainment. Shortly after that blast of silliness everyone dawned long pants and jackets to enjoy a nice campfire time where the speaker for the week Bob spoke a few words. Just as the fire dwindled and campers began to close their sleepy eyes, the bell was rung and the buzz of life returned to the deep twilight sky. It was time for clan initiation where clans Ferguson  Stewart, McPherson, and Campbell welcomed campers with various fun activities under the bright shining stars.IMG_5865
