Hey Camp Gilgal!
It’s Sox here and I wanted to give you a little bit of an update on the camp preparations. Did you know that whether it is for Junior Camp, Teen Camp, or Adventure Camp the staff is looking forward to camp almost as much as our campers are?!?!
Next week, Sitruce and I are headed to the Delaware River Water Trail to scope out Adventure Camp 2016 (woot woot!) I think that I probably say this about every Adventure Camp trip, but the canoe trip is my absolute favorite, so I am excited to get an extra one in this year. As a camper, the canoe trip was my first time doing any kind of serious camping and I was so surprised by how much I loved it. This was more than ten years ago (an eternity when it comes to technology!) so I didn’t have a cell phone and I definitely didn’t have a smart phone, but even still leaving behind technology was a big deal.
I think the thing that I like the most about the canoe trip and look forward to the most about it, is that for a week we are totally a team. Whether camper or staff, veteran or first timer, we are literally all in the same boat…ok corny I know, but it is true. Everyone has to paddle, everyone has to help cook, everyone has to help clean. When we finish the week, we finish the trip together. I. LOVE. THIS. TRIP. I’m no athlete and I’m not so crazy about the outdoors (I live in New York City), but this trip is the closest to a team sport that I get to play. It is unbelievably beautiful and we go out of our way to make sure that the food is also unbelievably tasty.
If you are 15,16,17, or 18 I want to ask you to consider joining us for Adventure Camp 2016. I don’t want you to miss out! We’re looking to take about 5 guys and 5 ladies and still have space but it will likely fill up. Don’t miss out!!! #registerearly #registeroften #registernow
