It was opening day. Everybody was arriving at camp. We all sat on our beds, waiting for something to happen, waiting for someone new to arrive. There was the opening ceremony: they fired the cannon, and Sam Randall, the youngest camper, unfurled the flag. Mr. Vinnie gave a speech about the first opening ceremony, and Bumpson gave the trustee opening speech about camp this year. Everybody took a quick soak and a rough swim test. The new boys talked with Mr. Vinnie about camp life, and, for campfire, he read “Pigs is Pigs.” It was a wonderful opening day at Pasquaney.
