The season of camp reunions has begun!October 28, 2016
Fall is here which means that we have started our season of Camp reunions. Two weeks ago we held our first post-summer gathering at the House of Sports in Ardsley, NY. Dozens of veteran campers from NY, NJ and CT joined us for an evening of gaga, basketball, art projects, kickball and hanging out with camp friends. Counselors from all over the Tri-State area (and a few from the UK) took time out of their busy lives to come spend time with their campers.
At each reunion or camp gathering I always marvel at how little time it takes for it to feel like we are back in New Hampshire. At the event in Ardlsey it took a matter of seconds before everyone resumed their camp friendships right where they left off in August. Everywhere I looked there was giggling and hugging and laughing all around.
More than 30 new campers were also with us, and it was so fun to see how quickly and easily they felt a part of our overnight camp community. Our returning campers remember what it’s like to be new, and worked really hard to make sure our new campers felt welcomed with open arms.
Just a few nights ago Scott, David, Josh, Sean and I were in Beijing for an amazing reunion with many of our camper families from China. We also hung out and/or had dinner with some of our other camp families in China. More on our time in Beijing in Monday’s blog!
In just over a week we will be hosting our annual fall Camp Reunion at Everwood Day Camp in Sharon, MA. We are excited to see campers and counselors from around New England, along with the many first-time campers signed up for the summer of 2017! This event will be on Sunday, November 6th from 2-4pm. If you haven’t yet RSVP’d for this camp reunion please email me in the Camp office.
We love seeing our camp friends and can’t wait to do it more in the coming weeks and months. We hope to see everyone one of our campers and counselors at one of our fall reunions, or at our events coming up this December and January.
