Valentine’s Day

Big news…Valentine’s Day is Actually in February!!!

After 6 summers of celebrating Valentines Day on July 14, celebrating in February with my camp friends was definitely a Wahanowin 1st for me!   It was great seeing so many Main Camp and BOB campers along with lots of siblings and brand new friends of the Wahanowin Family!   Valentine’s love was everywhere! 

I must say there are two main bonuses to having this party in February… First, unlike in July when every day is basically a party with all of my BFFs, this party was the only one I had going on all month!  I miss everyone so much…I’ll take any excuse to get together!  Second, in July the party store thought I was crazy when I asked where the Valentine section was!!

But I will say Valentine’s Day at camp also has its bonuses. A flagpole to remind everyone of the big day!  24 hours to party as apposed to 2!  (It wouldn’t be that challenging having a 2 hour dance marathon!)  600 or so Valentine hugs!!! No coats and boots to take away from the Valentine’s Day party wear!  And the best part is…We don’t have to go home when it is over!!! Don’t forget to check out the pictures from the Valentine’s Day Party!!!

The Game of Camp Life

DSC_0143 - Version 2

Camp is filled with tons of exciting things, from daily activities to awesome camp-wide programming. WIth all the excitement of camp, sometimes we forget that this is the first time at camp for many of these campers and they are not sure how yet  to be independent. This is why last night the BB/Bears and Eagles staff put on the “Game of Camp Life” for their camper’s Evening Program! Continue reading »

Bruce’s Blog: Toot Toot

Trapeze_a

 Pete and I went out for dinner recently with a couple of former campers/staff that are now parents on the verge of sending their children, a new generation of campers to camp. It was great to reminisce and catch up on our respective lives and of course talk about camp. Part of our discussion focussed on the different styles different camps have and specifically the fact that at Wahanowin we like our efforts and action to speak for itself and not to constantly barrage our families with messages of hype. We try not to bother (too much) our campers and parents but to always be available and willing to do whatever we can to make every camper’s experience the best it can be. However, their response was that you run an amazing camp and have a great facility and you should be yelling and screaming your own praises.
