Session 5: Opening Day!

By Sandy Schenck

Session 5 and Theater Camp campers and their parents were greeted by smiling staff members this morning. Several were returning campers who happily told their parents about Grand Slams, the Black Hole, the Comfy Couch Room and other fixtures of Green River. I also saw several campers, who after they checked in with Patti, asked if they could go down the “wobbly steps” at the Lodge to go to the Health Hut for the nurse check-in.

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.”

Next was swim review, field games and activity skits/sign-ups. Tonight’s evening program is Upper Council Fire. Tomorrow will be their first full day at GRP – filled with fun, friendship and adventure!
