I ran up to him, wondering if he was going to start crying when he saw us. Nope. "Oh hi Mom" he said. And then turned back to his friends!
|Chris was so excited to show us how he could put the harness on and walk the donkey by himself!|
Christopher had Animal Care, Riflery, Swim, Batting cages, Crafts, and Outdoor Cooking.
When we were over at the Outdoor Cooking station another mom approached me. "Are you Chris's mom?" she said. "ah, yes" I answered, a little surprised. She then proceeded to tell me about how both of her kids wrote home and mentioned Chris and how much they liked cooking because he was in the class. She said she was so curious who this Chris kid was. I asked if they were in the same cabin, but she said no, that her kids were 10 and 12 years old!
As we were walking around the grounds, lots of kids said hi, and gave Christopher a high five.
|Chris with Bart, who was Vinny's counselor a couple of years ago, who always |
remembers Vinny, and seemed to know Chris as well.
It even seemed like all the counselors knew him too, even if they weren't his counselor. What a great experience his first year was! Camp Kennolyn is such an amazing place with the best staff ever.
Vinny's activities were Archery, Wall Climbing, Fencing, Riflery, Board Diving, and Jr. Ropes.
This was Vinny's 3rd year, and surprisingly all the other boys in his cabin were first timers. His counselor said Vinny was a big help. Pete was talking to one of the boys who told us that Vinny talked a lot, even in his sleep. That's Vinny!
Joey had BMX riding, Pool hang out, Fencing, Badminton and Hockey.
|Was that fencing or bee keeping??|
|That is Joey standing on the BMX track--how awesome does that look!|
|Zach and Joey with their hockey sticks. The puck was a type of ball |
and they played on the tennis court
Zach and Joey were in badminton and hockey together, which I thought was pretty cool!
Zachary's activities were Archery, Stained Glass, Badminton, Hockey, Senior pool hang out, and Rugby. He said his favorite activity was the pool hang out, which is just what it sounds like, with other 8th and 9th graders (considered the senior campers)
Walking around the grounds at Kennolyn, I am struck by the quiet and beauty, and I am a little jealous. How great would it be to have 2 weeks, completely unplugged, surrounded by nature?
|I swear I packed this kid a brush!|
|Angels Camp--doesn't Chris look tiny??|
|Vinny and Cabin Davenport|
|Joey and Iron Mountain--cousins Peter and Gian are there too!|
|Zach and the big guys of Mammoth--his last year as a regular camper!|
Thanks Camp Kennolyn for treating my kids like family, and giving me and my husband 2 weeks of quiet!
