After a great First Program Cycle, Second Program Rotation kicked off with a bang this past weekend. Campers had the chance to modify their electives while still focusing on our core activities: Tennis, Swimming and Team Sports. Campers were excited to try some new program areas and refine skills developed in the first three-and-a-half weeks of camp. We had a great Friday Night Campfire this past weekend as well as a phenomenal Dance Show featuring more than 140 campers. We’re in final dress rehearsals for tonight’s production of Guys and Dolls and the music, scenery, costuming, and sets coming out of the Theatre seem phenomenal. We can’t wait to see the show! We had more than 28 intercamps last week alone and continue to have fun, remain competitive and participate in baseball, basketball, tennis, lacrosse, swimming, climbing, soccer, softball and gaga competitions.
More than 120 campers are now members of the coveted Camp Laurel Five Year Club. They donned their new, personalized 5 Year Shirts and headed out on their annual trip last night. A great time was had by all.
Our tripping department continues to shine. More than 100 campers have participated in overnight camping excursions through Maine and New Hampshire. We’ve hit Bradbury State Park, Rangeley Lakes, Tumbledown Mountain, Three Rocks, Camden State Park, Acadia National Park, Baxter State Park and more. Campers love traveling in small groups of 8-10 with three tripping counselors and always report it as one of their favorite summer highlights.
This Thursday night is Group Sing. One of the summers best evening programs takes place under-the-lights in the Hockey Arena as each group writes, rehearses and presents an original song written “camp style.” It should be another great night and we can’t wait!!
