NJ Monthly Fall Cover: Part 2!

As you probably recall if you looked at this blog like-five-ish-days-ago, we got a nice surprise when an aerial view of the 4-H Camp landscape was featured on the cover NJ Monthly Magazine's October Issue. 


After we reached out, the photographer who took the photo, Joe Polillo , was kind enough to share the original picture with us:

It was taken last fall, but we're happy you get to see it this fall to have a bird's eye view of what it looks like when the leaves start to change (as they are right now) at 4-H Camp.

We're all used to the up-close-beauty of 4-H Camp, but it's a great opportunity to see our home- -sweet-home nestled in all the rest of the natural beauty of the State Forest, National Park, and beyond that surround it.

Happy October!

Summer '18 In Review: Some Random Photos from our Friends


Every so often, throughout and after the summer, campers will pass along some great photos they took during their time here.

And, ALSO every so often, I'll share some of those photos on the Camp Blog.

AND, it looks like every so often is right now, because that's what's happening!

For instance, Dan took some photos on Polaroids, but that was NOT going to stop them from getting our way digitally - with captions included:



They said we look alike


Nelson came in the cabin at the perfect time

Tommy Boon's famous moment

It’s not even raining

??

More and more people kept coming into the photo

Friendo

Friendo pt 2






And Autumn sent along:





A classic end-of-session Saturday morning photo.


Speaking of classic Saturday morning photos, some of my personal favorite selections are of course...


Obligatory photos with the director...

Like the ones Alex sent me.



Or like Mike, who sent along a photo mash-up of his very first Saturday morning as one of our youngest campers...


And his last Saturday morning, as one of our oldest campers.  (Last until he comes back next year as a Junior Counselor, any way.)

Oh, speaking of Junior Counselors!

If you are a graduate of our CIT Program and are applying to be a Junior Counselor from Summer 2019, SAVE THE DATE for our Leadership Weekend Junior Counselor Training. 

It'll be held the weekend February 22nd-24th, Friday evening through Sunday Morning. 

You'll sign up to attend on your Junior Counselor application, which will be available in a few weeks.
