  • What is the best and worst part of camp?
    POSTED 9.13.16 Blog

    This part isn’t out of the ordinary:

    Every summer before campers depart, we hand them a piece of paper that asks a lot of questions. Things like: “Were your counselors welcoming?” and “What activities did you want to try, but didn’t?” and “Rate the camp food on a scale of 1-5.”

  • A day in the life of a camper at FdL
    POSTED 8.18.16 Blog

    By Edie, 3rd year Mid

    Morning:

    6:55am – Warning blows. I stay in bed.
    7:00am –  Reveille blows. I stay in bed.
    7:20am – Table blows. I stay in bed.
    7:25am – I sit up, throw on shorts and my newest tie-dye, and realize I’m late for table squad. Oops. Running up, I’m not the last one (luckily) and I squad table 9. After setting the table (napkins, silverware, plates, cups, etc.), I sit down and wait for staff and CTs to arrive. After a yummy meal of waffles, I help clear, and then stay after to clean the table.
