There are new children in each age group every summer. Old campers welcome the new campers in their cabins. When we visit with returning campers each spring we remind them that every summer is different. Campers acknowledge the year’s growth as we discuss what they are excited about for the coming summer and tell them about their counselors and the new campers in their cabin.
