It is definitely summer when you know this is about to happen…

School is FINALLY over! The weather is warm. It’s summer. But as a camper, you know that it’s never REALLY summer until you get to camp, and in just one more week, you’ll be there. The closer arrival day gets, the more you replay what you know is about to happen in your head. There are little signs every year that mark that day to which you’ve been counting down for several LOOOONNNNGGG months. But it’s most definitely summer when you know this is about to happen…

Your parents will take you to a meeting place for a bus or plane ride to camp, or maybe they’re driving you to camp themselves. The trip to camp will seem 10X longer than it actually is because you just want to get there.

Your mom will most definitely cry when she says goodbye and assures you she’ll see you on Visiting Day. You’re so excited you can hardly stand it, but maybe you’ll cry a little too just so that she doesn’t feel bad.

As soon as you pull into camp, you’ll start looking for your camp friends. Maybe they’ll spot you first. No matter who finds whom, you’ll run and hug. After hugs all around with your friends, you’ll also hug your favorite returning counselors and staff members.

You’ll meet your bunk mates (if you don’t already know them) and your new counselors, who are every bit as excited as you that you’re finally at camp!

You’ll go into your new cabin with your friends and realize that you really ARE at camp. Another summer has begun! Bring on the FUN!

You’ll spend the rest of the day cheering, singing and laughing with your friends. This is just day 1, and the entire summer is ahead of you. But it’s definitely summer because all of this happened, just as you knew it would.

Only 18 More Days!

Our pre-camp crew has been hard at work and the Camp Weequahic campus looks amazing! It’s not quite perfect, though, because you—our campers—aren’t here yet.  Every day as we walk the campus, we think to ourselves that the only thing missing is our campers. As picturesque as our campus is, it’s our campers that make Camp Weequahic “Camp Weequahic.” Opening Day of the Tribal Session is only 18 days from now, however, and we absolutely can’t wait to hear the buses driving up the road. You’ll meet the awesome staff that we’ve assembled for the summer. You’ll walk into your Summer 2014 bunk for the first time. Then, together we’ll raise the flag for the first time for the summer of 2014. We’ll gather in the Dining Room for our first meal as a camp. And, for the next six weeks, we’ll swim, climb, sail, ski, tube, kick, bat, pitch, volley, skate, make, build, cook, sing, dance, flip, cheer, create, make new friends, putt, enjoy new adventures with old ones, and just about anything else we can think up or imagine.

In just 18 more days…
