It's the First Day of Camp!

Yesterday was a crazy, busy, and exciting day at Appel Farm! All of the counselors were so excited for the arrival of the campers and the true beginning of summer. Although everyone had to say goodbye to their families, they have already started forming awesome friendships. We’ve met so many new faces: bunk counselors, bunk mates, and other campers. After dinner everyone gathered for the Welcome Extravaganza to see the staff introduce themselves in fun and creative ways. The Extravaganza is a blast for both staff and campers, offering campers a chance to see with whom they’ll be spending their summer. All of the bunk areas perform an act, as well as every department, and our leadership team.

Today we started exploring our majors and minors! Everyone had so much fun in during their first day of classes. For our evening activity every bunk participated in a camp scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt was designed based on this years theme, “The Journey Starts Here”, as well as the 2016 summer olympics. We’re so excited to finalize our majors and minors tomorrow, as well as get into the groove of camp! Scavenger hunt pictures will be up on our website tomorrow, so keep an eye out!
