Highlights from the Summer — Part 2
By Beth Lester
Continued from two weeks ago, here are the rest of the top-10 highlights from this summer!
1) A Very Potter Musical
Sarah Maserang hit the ball out of the park with this one! The whole cast was phenomenal, and the camp loved seeing them have so much fun! We shared a few hours worth of laughs and were all so proud of our friends for working so hard to get such a great show perfected and running smoothly. The singing, dancing, and acting all made us feel so lucky to know these great thespians! We don’t have enough great things to say about the show!
2) “Chill Night” for evening program
When Sue told us that evening program was cancelled, and we were just going to hang out on the Maine Field instead, everyone was so excited! It was great to get a chance to sit back and relax on a warm summer evening, especially since were all so tired. There were pick-up games going on all over the field, and it was great to see campers, counselors, and staff from all areas and ages playing and laughing together. “Chill night” was such a great surprise, and it was definitely a necessary break from our usual routine!
3) When David cut his dread-locks
Speaking of surprises! David’s change in hairstyle was exciting for all of us. Part of what was so special about David cutting his dread-locks was that it spoke to what camp is all about. Knowing that we were still going to love him, even without his long hair, gave David the courage to be so independent and courageous. This was a big change for him; he had had the same hairstyle since he was the same age as some of our campers. Seeing David being so independent and seeing him make such a huge change was inspiring for us all!
4) When Phil and Morgan were waiters
…and then they started play-fighting in the dining hall?! In all my years at CNS, I definitely think this was the best Lip-Sync prize ever awarded! Nothing can beat seeing some of our great directors acting goofy and super-formal in the dining hall. Did you know that they had been betting each other on who would get picked? Which director would you want to be the waiter (or waitress) for a day?
5) Predator Prey
We can thank Brooke for bringing us this great game! It was amazing to see campers of all ages working together to stay alive and to gather all of the food, water, and shelter that they needed to prosper! Playing this game together as a whole camp was a great way to come together as a community, burn off some energy, and have a great time. Predator Prey is sure to become a classic camp evening program! Thanks Brooke!
