As First Session comes to a close today, we look back at all the fun we had these last two weeks.
We started with some silly games.
Sang many wacky songs at campfire and laughed through skits about space aliens and baby deer.
Played until we couldn’t play any more.
Danced in holiday and neon costumes.
Slept under the stars and roasted marshmallows.
Heard the 50 best things about Coppercreek at Vespers.
Celebrated four birthdays and so many “firsts.”
Screamed and shouted away the afternoon at Camp Jam.
And best of all, made new friendships that will last a lifetime.
Today we did not say “goodbye”, but instead we said “see you later.”
We asked Battleship what their favorite part of camp is so far. Here are the answers:
Brandon- Horse Riding!
Jesse- All my friends in Battleship.
Lucas- Canoeing the other night up at the lake.
Riley- Climbing all the way up the climbing wall!
It has been a great first couple of days and we can’t wait for Outpost tonight!
Dear Whomever This Letter May Concern,
Camp rocks! Or, more specifically, TREK rocks! This year I got to go to third session for the first time. It was weird not knowing everybody for the first few days, but everyone was really nice and fun to be around. It was a session full of firsts for me because it was my first time on TREK too!
We had a lot of fun in the caves, but it was hard work. We had to crawl through crevices only a foot off the ground! But it was worth it to see all of the shimmery rocks above our heads. They would glitter like gold and silver. I remember even seeing some blue in some parts. Caving also made me appreciate simple things like being able to stand up without hitting my head!
After caving we went back to camp for both a break and the dance. The real exciting part was being able to eat without cooking ourselves. I’m not saying TREK food was bad, but you try giving a bunch of 14 year olds cooking responsibilities for a week. It doesn’t end well.
The next week we went backpacking and river rafting but I’m running out of paper so all I can tell you is that it was a TON of fun and worth every hour left unslept. I’m so excited to come back next year!
Thank you and goodbye.
