This week at Camp the staff 2012 list has started looking a little closer to completition, after finding several new awesome counselors from Australia and the UK. We also have several alumni campers returning as counselors this year which is very exciting, and will bring new stories and experiences to share with this years lucky campers. We have also had a lot of new campers signing up which has kept Marianne and Jennifer busy.
After a little (tiny) bit of snow at the start of the week, the weather appears to be heading towards Spring with today being a beautiful 60 degree, blue skied day. The Wellspring Academy students are currently laying on the OD field enjoying the sun, playing fetch with Elvis and even paddling in the creek. The sun, blue sky and bustling OD field reminds us of summer-and everyone is excited for June 3rd, Opening day of Session 1 to arrive. Hurry up campers!
