Yesterday was the first day of camp. Everyone was filing onto the hillside waiting for the exciting camp season to start and lugged their heavy camping gear up to the trunk room with the help of other campers. The campers lined up by flagpole rock as the cannon was lit and fired to mark the start of Pasquaney’s 122nd season. Mr. Vinnie and the youngest camper – Javi Martinez-Laya – tried to lower the flag but it just would not budge. After, the new boys went down to the bath house for their first soak ever. The new campers learned the rule about turning your tag before entering and leaving the lake. After dinner there was a reading by Mr. Vinnie from Siwash and then we all went to bed. It was a successful return to camp, and everyone went to bed looking forward to their first full day at camp.
