A Very Rustic Riverdale

Energy was buzzing today through the silver sunshine as the Senior Girls worked hard all day transforming the Main Lodge into a retro diner that Pop Tate would have been proud of, complete with milkshakes on every table and individually-labelled Jughead crowns for every camper. The food, however, was a few steps up from burgers […]

Superstars on Stage

As the month draws to a close we’re winding up, not down, here at camp. Awards are being achieved in incredible volume, speaking to the dedication and drive of our campers. There’s nothing quite like seeing (and hearing) the pure, unbridled pride our campers express when they see their friends meet their goals – more […]

Halfway through 3rd period the skies opened up and the most refreshing rain came pouring down providing us with much-needed relief from the crazy weather.
