Opening Day: Session 2

By Sandy Schenck

It was a beautiful opening day at GRP. I’d like to know what you’re feeding your children though because they have certainly grown several inches since last summer. A few of them, in fact, were even taller than their counselors. After camp tours and cabin photos (more will be uploaded tomorrow) the campers had lunch.

After lunch the girls and then the boys gathered at the gazebo for the traditional GRP Respect Circle. It’s a time when Sandy and Missy talk to the campers about having respect for yourself, respect for each other and respect for all living things. Each camper and staff member then promised to try their best to do these things by saying aloud “I will.” 

Swim review and fun field games followed with a delicious meal of fried chicken with all the “fixins” at dinnertime. The evening program was Capture the Flag which is a big favorite around here. I imagine the campers and staff alike will sleep well tonight.
