11:35am It’s the first proper day of camp (the kids arrived yesterday) and I’ve been in the office all morning! There’s always so much to do on the first day, but luckily activities don’t start until tomorrow, so I’ve got time to get everything on my to do list done. Today is ‘Monday Funday’, which … More Day 29. June 23rd ’14: It’s Monday Funday!
9:10am So nice to have a lie in after a hectic week of staff training. We were all off at 4:30 yesterday afternoon, so all the supervisors went to Mizza’s for some food and drink. We’re not due back to work until lunch today so I’m going to Irving Farms for breakfast this morning with … More Day 27. June 21st ’14: Kids Arrive Tomorrow!
9:10am Jeez I’m so tired. Should have gone to bed earlier last night but I was in the office helping organise a bunch of (very confusing) paperwork until super late. It’s cool though, cos I haven’t really got much on today besides some final organisation for Media. Sorting out lesson plans with Danielle, and running … More Day 23. June 17th ’14: An Overnight, A Storm, And A Tent With A Massive Hole In It!
7:30am Oh god, I’m so hungover. We went out last night to Mizza’s (the local pizza place…with heaps cheap beer) to celebrate my birthday and it got a little out of hand. It was just the 8 or so of us that have been at camp these last few weeks for the Spring season that … More Day 13. June 7th ’14: Happy Birthday To Me!
8:45am It’s my day off and I’m up before 9am. What am I thinking?

Ok, well really Rosie’s choosing the horses (she’s the Riding Director) and the … More June 5th ’14. Day 11: A Road Trip to Vermont and a Groundhog called Bobby
8am Breakfast. It’s just me, Rosa and Jess working today as everyone else is on their day off (the last one of Spring Camp I think), so it’s pretty quiet. I think we’re just going to be doing odd jobs around camp, which is kind of my favourite thing to do. But actually. I like … More June 1st ’14. Day 7: Work Hard, Play Hard
4:30am Oh my god I am so cold. Why am I awake? Bloody jetlag. My body clock is so screwed right now. Everyone else is asleep. Shhh. Oh, the window was open, that’s why it’s freezing in here. Why was the window open? Right, come on sleep, come back to me…don’t need to be up … More May 28th ’14. Day 3: Jetlag, Fishing, Make-Believe Storms and Hilarious Pranks
8am So excited. Been waiting all year. 4th summer at camp. And it’s finally here. Been in Australia all year and cannot wait to see all my camp friends.
