The other morning, I walked into our morning meeting and our Executive Director was blasting music and handing out donuts to all the supervisors. It took me a second and then I realised…. this is what he does every year at the halfway point of the summer. Halfway?! How had that happened? Every summer I … More Returning to Camp with BUNAC: Ohhhhh, We’re Halfway There
Ok, so where did I leave off last month? Our spring staff had just arrived at the end of May, and then camp really started to feel like summer was starting. I spent a day training our staff on the high ropes elements and going through some team building games that they’d be running for … More Returning to Camp with BUNAC: The Kids Are Finally Here!
7:45am Happy Birthday to meeeee! Just woke up to the house filled with about a thousand balloons. I love my friends so much… so that’s what they were doing last night! 8:55am Just had breakfast and now waiting for our job assignments for today. I bloody love Spring camp and just getting a job to … More Day 9. June 7th ’16: Camp Birthdays Are The BEST!
My summers at camp are all about photos. Photos of the kids, photos of my friends, photos of theme days, evening activities, campfires… endless photos. Photos, photos, photos. What on earth do I do with all these photos when the summer is over? Well first I print all my favourites and put them all over … More Summer 2016 In Photos
11:15am Been out taking photos all morning which is great. It’s so nice to just leave the office for a few hours and wander around camp. Good chance to see everyone I don’t get to see that often too, and the kids. I love stopping by the pool and seeing what they’re all up to. … More Day 39. July 2nd ’15: I Got My 5th Year Watch!
11am So I’ve been at camp for exactly a month and I can’t believe it’s gone so quickly! It’s insane that I’m already a quarter into my time here this summer…can’t it just slow down and last longer?! Anyway. Had the morning off today. We were off last night and it was fab… went to … More Day 33. June 27th ’15: The Kids Are Coming Tomorrow!
If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you’ll know by now that I’M AT CAMP! I arrived here 3 days ago, very happy and excited to be back in my favourite place in the world, and ready to get stuck in. At the moment there’s only a handful of us here (with a few more … More Spring Camp Exists Too!
9:10am Day off, day off, day off! Got up early to come for breakfast at Irving in Millerton. Bacon and egg on a roll. Best thing ever. I’m sure I’ve said that before? I’ve borrowed Keith’s car and we’re going to go to Great Barrington for tattoos and piercings. Yay! Very excited. 3:15pm Just left … More Day 58. July 22nd ’14: It’s Tattoo Time!
8:25am About to take the LEADs to Bear Mountain with Charlotte. Just us and 22 LEADs. This should be interesting. But I’m excited – in all my summers at Sloane, I’ve yet to do the Bear Mountain Hike, so I’m actually quite pumped. Even though I definitely don’t hike. Ever. But It’s kinda something you … More Day 45. July 9th ’14: We’re going on a Bear (Mountain) Hunt
10:45am Loving my day off so far. Went to the batting cages yesterday afternoon to hit some balls (I was surprisingly better at it than I thought I would be!), and then to Mizza’s for pizza and beers as per usual. Now at Irving Farms for breakfast… standard order of bacon and egg on a … More Day 38. July 2nd ’14: Another Day Off & A Mahoosive Storm
