It’s finally upon us. The last day of camp! How do you summarize a summer of such excellence and fellowship? Well, a good way to start it is to celebrate a pillar of camp.

We had an amazing day at Scarborough Beach! After dinner, it was down to the waterfront for the Strut Contest. So many great names written on the camper’s hands.  These names are then often “performed” on the catwalks during the camper’s strut.

One look at the lake told camp everything they needed to know about the day: rain was a’comin. A thick cloud of fog blanketed the field and lake as camp rose to a breakfast of pancakes and bacon. The weather forecast was calling for scattered rain showers in the afternoon, so the kids braced themselves... Read More »
