Hello Again BLC Parents,
It was great to see so many of you for a wonderful Visiting Weekend!
The Song Contest – as you probably know – was won by the Inters.
Camp has rebounded well from your visits. The traditional “slowdown” following Visiting Weekend was mild, if at all. Counselors maintained their energy and campers their enthusiasm. Laughter still abounds.
Our Seniors are home after multi-day trips to Boston (Sr A’s), Philly (Uphill C’s), and Montreal (Downhill C’s). The burden on trip leaders leading teenagers into cities is enormous, and we are thankful for their talents and efforts.
Next, our Inter B’s head to Cooperstown on Sunday to Monday. Some self-selected Inter A’s are taking a day climb to Giant Mountain (of the High Peaks, NY) on Monday. Our Sophs have half-day hikes on the schedule.
Friday night was our annual Ten Year Party that Mieks Gersten hosted at our home. There were an incredible 60+ invitees.
Today was our Carnival, which included a Halloween theme with bunks dressing up together and prizes for the best/most creative costumes. Our older Seniors led the event with help from our older Sports Academy girls.
Tomorrow features the final day of Olympics for our Sophs through Inter A’s.
This next week will have our Five Year Party with approximately 190 campers and staff invited. FYI, we also had 90 first-year campers this summer.
Also at some point this week, GREEN and GRAY will BREAK! As always, this is the most anticipated 4 days of the summer.
We will check back with you next week with final week plans and reminders about your boys’ return back to you.
Thanks for your support. We wish to reiterate, if you ever want to speak about anything – no topic is off-limits – please contact us. We will always speak forthrightly to our parents.
Have a Great Week,
Richie G for Max and Andy
