Today’s post features Suzanne P.’s camp entry which reminisces about her magical camp stay now that her daughter is following in her footsteps at “Everything I remember about summer camp was absolutely amazing! Being nestled on the banks of Lake Fairfield for the summer was magical. I loved listening to the frogs serenade us at night and the fairies that flew by our cabins lighting up the night. When I return in the summers now with my daughter, the same magic returns. She now experiences all that Merrie Woode has to offer. One of my most precious memories was the torch coming in from the lake for opening campfire, signifying the beginning of the session. At the end of the session, I loved watching the torch go back to the lake to rest for the long winter months. Along with the torch, each camper would send a single candle onto the lake allowing the light in them to go out to the rest of world. It was a gorgeous site to see!”
