Campers awoke this morning to bright rays of sun
They cleaned and got ready for their last full day of fun
Chapel took place at the glorious Lake Doris
Where campers followed along to Sunnyside’s chorus
Their Sound of Music was So Long, Farewell
As they bid adieu to the place they loved to dwell
After Sunnyside chapel campers began to pack
While counting the days until they would be back
In activities today camper’s reached new heights
From the blob and the slide to the high ropes course
Campers were brave, doing what once caused them freights
Some even did high jumps while straddling a horse
Grayson W said the high ropes were scary at first
She was nervous, but shocked by how much she enjoyed it
When it comes to heights, the anticipation is always the worst
“The blob was fun” they all admit, glad they did not quit
At lunch, the Tucker Inn was filled with commotion
From pizza and tribe fest to campfire songs of departure
Campers chanted and sang, their voices filled with emotion
Who will win the banner? No one knows yet for sure!
Campers went bananas in their afternoon classes
In cooking they whipped up banana nutella bread
It was delicious and satisfied the masses
Meanwhile in DIY campers worked with thread
They put final touches on bracelets and stitch work
“My cross stich has my initials” Lucie C said
At the final campfire cabins shared what they would remember
They would not forget their friends and cabin nights come September
Campers rejoiced in their friends’ white feather promotions
New White Feathers, Isabella B and Rachel D, were filled with emotion
Campers sang around the lake as they put candles to float
Though some goodbye tears were shed, it ended on a happy note
As they sang “we will all be together again”
For, this is goodnight and not goodbye! Amen.
