Today’s post is from Harli R., who made this summer a great installment to her time at Camp Pontiac. Check out her story and see what makes Pontiac a great place! “My camp experience was amazing this summer! It was my 5th year at Camp Pontiac, and this was my favorite summer so far! What makes my camp so special is the camp traditions. They make everyone feel this special feeling. Since we do these traditions every single year everyone gets closer with everyone. Some of these traditions are Hits, Sing, the Camp Pontiac Alma Mater, Color War Sing, and so much more. My favorite tradition is probably the Camp Pontiac Alma Mater, because we have this song forever throughout our lives. It’s also really catchy! Once you keep coming back and coming back these traditions are so meaningful to you. For example—the Alma Mater. It talks about how you want to keep coming back to this special place. The Alma also talks about the friendships that you make, and that you think about this place as your second home. All of these traditions that they have at camp make the summers feel real. If I didn’t have them at my camp the summer wouldn’t be as great as it would be. All of them are way too much meaningful to me for that to happen. They all teach lessons, which I love. At Hits you make up a skit, which uses teamwork. In Sing you talk about friendship. Especially in the Sing Alma Mater. (Not the Camp Pontiac Alma Mater.) In the Camp Pontiac Alma Mater you get special feeling for the camp, and for Color War Sing, there is sadness because everyone is going to leave in 4 days. All of these special traditions do a bunch of things for Camp Pontiac.”
It’s wonderful to hear how much you enjoy your time at Camp Pontiac, Harli! I’m glad you find the camp and their traditions so charming! So wonderful that you have a place like Camp Pontiac that you love to return to year after year!
