Opening Sundays at camp

Every other Sunday at camp  is “Opening Day”. There is always excitement in the air:  the staff are freshly cleaned and pressed, the beds bleached, the flaps rolled up, and the dining hall arranged to suit the session.  We thought it would be fun to show you what the campers see when they arrive at Coppercreek Camp.

You will be greeted by friendly faces at the Welcome Table.

Maybe even a lot of friendly faces because everyone is so excited to meet new campers and wants to be in on the action.

Then we all head out to the meadow to play a bunch of silly games that make us laugh.

You might see a bunch of crazy people. But don’t worry. They are actually quite fun.

We will probably play “Pirate Ship”.

Attention! Captain on deck!

If you are a little nervous…

We will probably play until everyone has made new friends.

And before you know it, you will feel  like you have been here for weeks and know everyone.

And the name tags- everyone wears them for the first couple of hours but by dinner, they aren’t necessary anymore because we will know your name.
