End of the Off-Season! (Scenes from a Spring Family Weekend.)

Yes, the Off-Season is officially over!

That long winter-month journey towards summer-time at Camp is behind us, the off-season is done with!

How can you tell?

We'll tell you how you can tell:



You can tell because Camp is filled with people...

For Our Spring Family Weekend!

You can tell because...

We're Tie-Dying again!

Yes, we're rubber-banding...

And soaking...

And wringing...

(And petting...)

And greening and blueing...

And yellowing and redding...


And bagging again!

Yes, you can tell it by the palms of our hands cause we are TIE-DYING again!

You can telling because we're bow-ing again!


And arrow-ing again!

You can tell because we're standing on the shore,



Casting...

And watching...


And waiting...

And fishing again!



You can tell cause we're at the waterfront again!

(And that's how we feel about it!)

Yup, we're kayaking...

And posing...


And paddling...

And racing...

And racing faster...


And floating...

But mostly guarding...

And also relaxing...


And doing it all cause we're at the waterfront again!


We've got campfires...

And sitting around campfires again!


And we're preparing...




Campfire food again!

Speaking of food...

We're all gathered around the table...

With some new friends...

Some good conversation...

Some good food...


(Very good food...)



Cause we're all... 

in the Dining Hall again!



And we're on the flagstones again!

Cause we're lowering..

And we're folding the flag again!

And then you know where we are again!

Cause we're sitting...

And listening...


And sharing...

And reflecting...

And introspecting...

Because we're back on Vespers Island again.

Yes, the off-season is over!

(As you can tell by the pile of pictorial evidence we've just presented.)


And summer is a-heading our way!



And we can't possibly think...


Of a better way to mark the occasion...

Than some quality time...
(With friends new and old...)






Together at Camp...



For our Spring Family Weekend.


Thanks to all our participants for joining us this weekend, and extra special thanks to all our Staff volunteers for making it happen.

We hope you'll join us again (or for the first time) next year! We've already got the dates: May 18th-20th, 2018! Put it on the calendar now- you'll be able to sign up during Polar Bear Registration in December.

But enough about 2018! 

Summer 2017 is still ahead of us, and happening soon. 

Tune back soon to meet more of our Summer Staff, and to hear more about how very close to sold out we are!
