Wortman’s cookout and studio night!

Boy oh boy did we do so many things today. Ready to hear about them? Great.

So we woke up this morning to the delicious smell of bacon wafting throughout camp. And man nothing helps you get ready for the day better than eau de bacon. After eating aforementioned bacon, we headed down to the black top to take our traditional annual bus photo!! 

Look at these beautiful smiling faces! And then these beautiful silly faces!

After the photo, we just hopped on the bus to go to one of our favorite events of the summer: The cookout at the Wortman’s home! We love them and their hospitality, hammock, backyard, beach, and ice cream! Thank you to Denys and Marilyn for such a relaxing day and a great way to spend time getting to know each other and plan for studio night!

As Jason was swimming, he kept saying “perfect”. And he was right, everything was perfect.

The Wortman’s have a great dock where we can swim, and Andres got the chance to show us some of his very impressive, olympic swimming moves. He gave us some backstroke lessons and smoked us in some races. But we probably could have guessed that would happen, judging by the fact that he came prepared with his own swim cap!jabb2016day16-53 jabb2016day16-55 jabb2016day16-56 jabb2016day16-57kg dock -1jabb2016day16-58 jabb2016day16-59 jabb2016day16-60

After waving goodbye to the Wortman’s, we got back to camp and started practicing for studio night. It was amazing to see some of our new campers and counselors put themselves out there on stage and show us some of their talents! People did lots of dances, singing, joke telling, impressions, and arm wrestling, and here are pictures of everything:

Marie did a rap about her best friends at Camp, Becca and Julia

The Tulgey Mamas danced to “Walking on Sunshine”, but the photographer was in the act so you’re just going to have to use your imagination with Sue and Bethie dancing around Cathy who was dressed as a beautiful sun. And to top it all off, Faith and Jake performed a very realistic version of Singing in the Rain!

If you can believe it, we have an even BUSIER day tomorrow, so we will go to bed now and rest up to keep living the dream.

Love,

Camp
