Dear Parents,

Welcome to camp!  Merri-Mac started this session with a wonderful opening day.  Ann and I especially enjoyed talking with so many of our parents as you checked your girls in.

After a year of planning we officially started first session with a swim test, followed by dinner and singing.  Sunnyside did a wonderful job leading the cabin songs, but it was clear that the real tension is building for tomorrow’s first tribal cheers.  But before that happens, we had to elect our new tribal officers: (will be announced on Monday).

After dinner we went up the mountain for the our fist 2013 initiation.

The new Merri-Mac Seminoles are: Alexandra F., Elizabeth H., Margaret H., Sarah W., Aubrey W., Brittin B., Elizabeth R., Katherine H., Mary A., Mariah H.

The new Merri-Mac Iroquois are: Elizabetie H., Georgie W., Zofia C., Lucie D., Marin G., Kylie Brooke T., Kelly Anne T., Kimberly C., Lucy D., Angelique M., Mary Emily M., Ella M., Katheryn N.

The new Merri-Mac Choctaws are: Carolyn N., Alice A., Mackenzie P., Margaret D., Martha P., Lauren B., Katherine L., Marrill H., Madeline N., Olivia O., Lauren J.

Later several cabins were seen sneaking out with their staff for their own special cabin initiations.  Lots of girls becoming Merri-Mac insiders tonight.

I wanted to end by thanking you again for sharing your daughters with us; we have a great group of girls.  We also have some very exciting days lined up and we’ll keep you posted each day.

                                                                  Great Camping!
