Besides the regularly scheduled activities and hobbies, there were dozens of special activities. These included All Camp Programs, Village Nights, Bunk Nights, and Friday and Saturday Shabbat services and programs. All this gave him the opportunity to meet boys and girls of all ages. At home Sam has a little sister Abby, but at camp Sam had a "big brother" named Noah. They really bonded and Sam misses him.
Sam said the food was delicious! I'm sure he tried some new dishes. He seemed so responsible when he came home. He picks out his own clothes every morning and doesn't need to be reminded several times to do what he needs to do.
I went to camp two generations ago and my children went one generation ago. Those camps were heavily scheduled with little time to just play outside in the village with friends. I was so happy that Sam had time to hang out and there were no electronics involved.
Thank you so much for this heartfelt entry, Carol! What a joy to hear that summer camp has been such a positive rite of passage for Sam as well as your children and yourself as well! Seneca Lake sounds like a pretty special place and if anyone else would like to check it out closer by clicking here. And as always, thanks for reading!
