After a few hot and humid days (and one day mostly of rain) session two has blessed us with sunny skies, cool and dry with a breeze. Everyone here—and “everyone” is the right word, as this is a completely full session!—is hitting their stride. I’ve gone around the last few days looking for a variety of scenes and views and people, to give my faithful blog readers a sense of how paradisal this place can be.

A group of CITs is minutes away from departing on their multi-day hiking trip. Do you sense excitement?

A view from the Biscuit Creek Bridge looking southward at Biscuit Creek as it moves through camp. This photo was taken two days ago and you see the river is low. But yesterday’s rain filled it up a bit.

Elodie and Claire, two of our talented CIT Coordinators.

KC Johnson, longtime staff member, drops off her daughter Cole. They travel all the way from California for camp. KC is mighty proud.

Matt and Jeff, at left, return—both of them former Directors of Camping Services. Here they are with a range of former campers and staff.

Marquis is proud of his badge (he is the VC of STEP this summer) and his Al’s Challenge Night t-shirt, acquired last night at Tacoma/Lenape/MAC Boys/STEP Challenge Night.

PAC village is looking for a bird, a plane, a superman.

Tacoma tie-dye hands.

These four alumni each have their own children in camp this session.

Biscuit Lodge at dusk, as I walked back from opening campfire.

Our director of equestrian programs, Emily Gorman, is able to dine on pizza and popsicle at once. A rare talent. (Well, not to much…at camp.)
