Hey guys, Sitruce here! I can’t believe camp is only 1 week away! Strings and I will be driving up to camp in 4 days to prepare everything we need before staff training, which starts on Wednesday the 29th. Here at the office RedSox, Strings and I have been finishing things up and wrapping up our work in the office. Tomorrow night I’ll start packing for camp which can get a little crazy.
Let me give you some advice; the first thing you want to do is look at the Junior Camp What to Bring List or Teen Camp What to Bring List and have it close. Next, it is very helpful to go through the list and cross things off once you’ve put it into your suitcase. Once you’ve done that you should probably try to fit in another sweater/sweatshirt or two because camp gets pretty cold in the mornings. Finally, one thing the list doesn’t mention is theme nights for Junior Camp! I suggest you bring some of your wackiest and craziest clothes that you can use for theme nights.
I remember my favorite theme night as a camper was backwards night. I wore my pants as a shirt and my shoes on different feet and I even put a watch a around my ankle. During dinner, Twister asked me get up and tell us the time. It took me a while to try to get my ankle close enough to my face to tell the time. It was pretty funny. . .
We have a couple of fun theme nights planned for this summer so get ready Camp Gilgal! This summer some of the theme nights we have planned is a 4th of July theme night so bring your red white and blue! We are also doing Ninja’s & Pirates and fashion disaster night. There will probably be an animal night of some kind, and even a superhero night. Get ready to get crazy!
Before leaving for camp remember to give the Camp Gilgal address to your friends and family so you can get lots of letters! Packages are ok, but better if they don’t have food in them–we can’t have food in the cabins! The camp address is written below. Last and definitely not least start getting excited for camp, I know I am! I can’t wait to see all of you! Next time I write it will be from camp, see you soon Camp Gilgal!
