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 the 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. Here’s a list of our tribe leaders:
Chief- Molly Kathryn Cornelius
Med Man- Isabella Bogdahn
Brave- Merrill Lash
Brave- Madisyn Martin
Chief- Caroline Alessandro
Med Man- Chloe Ryan
Brave- Madeline Henderson
Brave- Anna Merten
Chief- Anne Dillon Loflin
Med Man- Maddie Monaco
Brave- Reilly Byxbee

After dinner we joined together for initiation.

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.
