What a great first day! Our volunteers got excited for the kids to arrive by having an Indian Summer Camp Pep Rally. Not long after, we opened the gates and the camper families started pouring in for some camp fun.
After our amazing med staff checked everyone in, we all played water games and jumped around the inflatables before enjoying a KFC lunch.
After parents went on their way we had a great pizza dinner donated by Pops and the Wells family. After dinner the kids were surprised by the Oates Flag hot air balloon in the back field, which gave tethered rides. We then took our cabin and all camp photos before heading down to opening campfire.
At the campfire, each cabin performed a skit to introduce themselves and then the new campers & counselors were recognized for their first year courage with an Indian Summer Bravery Feather.
It's been a busy first day so everyone is now settling in to their cabins so they can rest up for Monday.
Thanks again parents for letting us borrow your kiddos for the week. We promise to take care of them and give them back as happy campers!
