Sadie Hawkins!

The rain today didn’t stop us from having a grand ol’ hoe-down for the annual Sadie Hawkins run and dance.  In fact the lightning provided a great backdrop for the Magen Boys’ special effects – a natural lazer light show! Electricity was in the air and the Main Lodge was buzzing with energy. The evening […]

The cold wind outside today only served to make the inside of the cabins cozier as campers and stuff snuggled in together to enjoy their last day on The Planet. Packing went smoothly and we spent the rest of the day doing warm fuzzies and cabin bonding activities. Many a marshmallow was roasted, bus letters written, […]

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow!

The last couple days of each session always have a different feeling then the rest of camp. It is clear we are winding down but at the same time winding up. Its hard to put your finger on what it is that the camp is feeling right now. Its almost as if everyone’s energy levels […]
