Greetings from the Realm!
We’re writing to you as we near the end of a very deserved Lazy Sunday. After five intense days of color war, today has been about getting back into the groove of regular activities and trying to soak up every last minute before closing day.
Last night, before song night, the six captains gave speeches to the campers, staff, and returning judges about their deep love and appreciation for camp. Here are two excerpts from the speeches, the first by Sarah Woodstein and the second by Chris Burgess:
‘That summer I began to understand and appreciate the essence of time. To the girls who have ever felt out of place, I can assure you that I was in the same place as you. I am a firm believer that a day at camp is truly wasted if you aren’t treading water for a ridiculous amount of time at the waterfront, dancing like a mad person at snack, doing the loudest drum roll before EA is announced, listening to all of your bunkmates with respect during evening circle, and carrying yourself with kindness.’
‘I can’t express how much of an impact this place has had on me, knowing I have a second home on the other side of the world I can escape to and not worry about the fears of the real world.’
Sweet dreams from the realmGetting
