Do Not Forget to Reminisce

summer camp busWhy is the last day of camp so grim?  It is because it’s heartbreaking to say goodbye to beloved friends. To say goodbye to the Connecticut Bel Air Pool.  To say goodbye to the crafts, the games, the songs, the amazing counselors and more.

We enjoyed nine great weeks of fun, science, adventure, cooking and more.  Thanks so much for joining in.  In particular, I want to thank our awesome counselors, Erika, Evan, Tasmin, Kathleen, and Lisi.  It was their enthusiasm, joy, experience, patience and kindness that made our time so delightful.  They are off to teach children in their own classrooms or be on their way back to colleges around the US. Another great contributor, our Camp Director, Caroline Maffry, did a wonderful job conducting the ‘summer orchestra’ this year. From hiring our great staff to planning field trips, the curriculum, t-shirts and more, she coordinated the endless details necessary to make camp work like a Swiss watch.  Thank you, Ms. Maffry!

And now… on to the thrill of a new school year.  Congratulations: everyone is a year older!  Soon it will be a time to see old friends and make new ones. It’ll be a time to learn new skills and make new discoveries.  It’ll be a busy time of hustle and bustle.

None-the-less, don’t neglect to reminisce about this wonderful  summer (kinda like that Kid Rock song.) Remember these long days of sunshine. The brutal heat and the icy popsicles.  Soap bubbles and watermelon.  Pine Cones and glitter glue. And all the good times and good friends at Evergreen Camp!

See you next summer!
