Camp Kesem 2013: Day 1
Well, it’s finally here. Camp Kesem Minnesota 2013.
I am so excited to see what almost twelve months of preparation and anticipation will have brought us to, at a new location and almost double the amount of accepted campers!
Our first day of camp went even better than expected! It was great to see all of our camper’s smiling faces at our check-in, reminding us exactly why we volunteer at camp every year! Returning campers were making the new campers feel right at home right away, before they even got on the bus! This trend continued throughout the day in cabins, at meals, and during our all-camp games. By the end of the night, it was hard to tell our new and returning campers apart!
Once we got to camp, we settled in and learned A TON of camp songs, and a got a tour of the facilities. There are so many fun activities that are here for us, and I think that I can speak for all of us when I say that we are excited to see what tomorrow has in store.
