It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! We woke up this morning, greeted by the mist over Laurel Lake, the chirping of birds, and a palpable sense of anticipation throughout the fields. It is opening day- the tent flaps are rolled up, the cabins swept out, and now all we can do is wait for everyone to arrive. Our staff has spent the last week bonding, learning, and getting camp ready and now we are because I cannot tell you how much we have to share with our campers, from new games to old traditions.
We capped off our last night of staff training with a campfire and discussion of the traditions of Fleur de Lis so that new staff, like me, could get a better understanding of some of the events that will be happening this summer. Again, I was struck with how much pride and affection the returning staff have for those things that make Fleur de Lis the place that it is. I know that I speaking for the entire staff when I tell you that we cannot wait to share all of it with your daughters.
Alright, now that I have gotten to share some of my excitement with you, I am off to finish getting ready but for just one more moment, let it sink in- Camp is here!
