Special Guests and Lost & Found!

Hello parents!  Yesterday was Lazy Sunday!  The morning started with the kiddos getting to sleep in followed by an optional donut breakfast at 9:00am!  That is a whole 30 minutes later than normal!  Afterwards they enjoyed workshops and related with their friends.

Today we have had some special guests stop by!   The kiddos had an amazing opportunity to do a workshop with the West Philadelphia Orchestra!  In the workshop they performed and taught them Balkan Folk Dancing.  They all danced hand in hand while listening to some fun tunes!  Afterwards we all gathered in the theater to watch them perform.  Immediately they invited all the campers to the bottom of the stage to dance!  A large conga line formed and wrapped all around the theater.  They had such a great time that the campers convinced them to stay for an encore!

The World Campfire photos are currently uploading to CampInTouch, make sure to check them out!  Also if you’re a First Session parent then lost and found photos are posted so please go through and find your camper’s belongings so we can get them back to you.

If you are the parent of a Two Weeker then below you can find all of the information on the Two Week Showcase.  

When: Saturday, August 5th

Two Week Showcase Schedule

Part I:

4:15    Music Concert @ Theater

5:30    Visual Art & Photography Show @ Art Gallery

6:30    DINNER @ Dining Hall (for families with campers in both Part I & II only)

Sports & Swim Video Feature @ Theater

7:40 Theater Show: Canterbury Tales @ Theater

8:20 Dance Show @ Theater

 

Our theater seats about 325 people, and we already have 300+ people here with our campers and staff. We are anticipating a very full theater with all of our campers, counselors and guests. We ask that you limit the number of guests you are bringing to 2 people per camper, if possible.

Plan to arrive only ten minutes early, because your children will need every last minute for technical rehearsals.

Please only attend the part of the showcase in which your child is performing. If your child is performing in both parts, then you are invited to stay for the entire evening and to join us for dinner at 6:30 pm. We will be offering a stuffed shells dinner, with outdoor seating. Our kitchen will need to prepare for additional guests, so if you would like to stay for dinner, we need you to RSVP no later than Thursday, August 3.

We understand that many of you will want to visit with your camper before or after their show, but please keep in mind, you will be picking them up the next morning to go home, and will have lots of time then to visit. Campers are not allowed to leave camp for dinner or after the performances.  Every minute of camp time is precious and we want your child to have all of it they can!
