So many great things happening here at CRH today. With 6 groups out on excursions – those of us left behind had the run of the place. We spent most of the day on the waterfront. It was hot but a cool mountain wind kept us protected at the beach. Every group has 2 chances at water skiing and enjoyed sailing and stand up paddle boarding. This afternoon the whole camp was at the beach- both senior and junior. I love watching kids in the water- enjoying the music in the back round while playing ball with our staff .
Its amazing to me how fast the summer has gone by…. The groups are like families with everyone working together while awaiting the upcoming Green and White competition. The GW buildup is exciting to watch. Everyone is talking about the break- this is bad news for us. Its the last piece left in puzzle of summer of 2016. We have had a great beach day, RH gives back day, and visiting day. Our kids always remember the break and it defines the summer for most- editors note – we are all set and hope it will be a hit. It is a mix of old and new -some times the great ones are usually my biggest fear while the biggest flops are my most confident ones.
We had a alumni visit today from Chuck Illig’s second summer at camp. Chuck was his counselor and they really enjoyed catching up. He spoke to camp and then took some questions from the campers. Most of the interest was about how much the Realm has changed and of course his favorite GW break. After 50 years he retold the story of his best break. He ended the talk with a piece of advice – enjoy every moment at camp and never stop coming back . He said the memories from 50 summers still fill his mind every day .
Best part is we get to do it all over again tomorrow – every day is like the movie “Ground Hog day” We are so lucky to share this place together and always respect the 10’s of thousands of boys and girls who have called the Realm – HOME
Sweet dreams from the Realm
