Gaga for Wawa!

To celebrate another beautiful day in our valley, we asked Wawayanda to share their silliest stories from the first week of camp. There were a few great sleepwalking stories; such as a camper who thought they were a T-Rex in their sleep, and another who tried to go swimming with their dog. There was a story of a dance party in the dark, in which the cabin used flashlights for decoration and brooms as additional guests. There were several courageous and goofy spider rescue missions; and last, but certainly not least, when our most excited storyteller got the chance to share his story, he thought for a moment and then said “actually, I forgot it!”. 


We’ve had a great week so far, filled with Gaga Ball Tournaments, creeking, camping trips, and goofy laughter. We can’t wait to make even more silly memories this weekend!
