Home Sweet (Summer) Home

Posted by on June 29, 2017

It’s been a whirlwind of nonstop action here at Micah since the moment campers hopped off the buses and began to settle into their cabins.  Not even an impromptu rain shower could dampen the mood of being reunited with old friends or thwart the excitement of meeting new ones for the very first time. In keeping with Micah’s first night tradition, our Unit Leaders and Team Leaders introduced themselves by singing silly songs and chanting motivating cheers.  The Upper Summits, the 10th grade camp leaders in B15 and G14, helped us to wind down the evening by leading us in “The Micah Song” before everyone headed back to their bunks for the rest of the night. They got to bond a little more before heading to bed. The head counselors made their ways around to the bunks to say goodnight and fill jars with the spare change that our campers and staff brought with them to camp to support the World of Change organization.

Today, during our first full day of camp, campers traveled around to a wide array of activities by bunk as they got to know the lay of the land. The Ninja Warrior Course remains a big hit and everyone stayed busy passing pucks at Street Hockey, kicking passes at soccer, shooting hoops at basketball, painting bunk plaques at art, and engaging in fun improv games at Uncle Milt’s Performing Arts Center.  Let’s not forget about play auditions today…they  went “Purrr-fectly.” Campers erupted in cheers in the Dining Hall when it  was announced that our first session play would be: Seussical the Musical!

With the start of individual schedules beginning this Friday, camp is abuzz with excitement and everyone is looking forward to an amazing summer ahead filled with new friendships, new adventures, and, of course , lots of fun in the sun!

Sweet Dreams from Bridgton and Sebago!
