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 fried chicken dinner and cabin songs. It’s always fun to see the girls sing as part of their new cabin each year – and Rainbow did an especially great job tonight. Those girls are excited to be on the hill. That said, it’s pretty clear that the big excitement is coming tomorrow when they sing their tribe songs for the first time in a year.
Later several cabins were seen sneaking out with their staff for their own special cabin initiations. There are lots of girls becoming Merri-Mac insiders tonight.
Tonight the Great Spirit selected girls to become apart of their tribe! The ceremony was wonderful and was filled with smiling faces.
