     Skippers & Mariners gathered with their families in the Auditorium during Friday’s Hip Hop Night. We danced along with DJ Todd Yahney & enjoyed a delicious snack at our last evening event of Summer 2017. Thank you to the  Mariner and Skipper families who celebrated with us!
    Monday morning brought perfect weather for Intramural Championships! Campers took to the fields, Hockey Rink, & courts to face off in Spotshot basketball, Pinball, & Ultimate Team Handball. Congratulations to this year’s 2017 Intramural Champions, & to all our campers for demonstrating good sportsmanship & putting in 100% effort. We are so proud of you! Also on Monday, Mariners said “Thank You” to Asst. Supervisor Lonny for 15 years of outstanding service, we learned about the solar eclipse during special indoor workshops, Navigators traveled to RVC Lanes for a Bowling party, & we celebrated our 25th Anniversary Summer with cake & dance parties all over camp.
     Today, Kindergarteners celebrated their Kindergarten Graduation, as they will return next summer as 1st graders in the Mariner Division. We signed each other’s t-shirts & visited our Wishing Well, where each group dropped in a star & made a wish for the coming school year. We also said “thank you” to our long-time campers with a gift: 5-year campers & staff received a sweatshirt and 10-year campers & staff received a personalized Rolling River jacket. Each summer is better than the last, and we can’t wait to see what our 26th summer – 2018 – has in store. Make sure to visit us throughout the year during our off-season activities like the Annual Fall Festival, Great Date Night,  Holiday Camps, birthday parties, & school events.
     Thank you to all our parents and families for making our 25th Anniversary Summer Voyage the best yet! Without your support, we couldn’t give your campers these memories to last a lifetime.
