Dear Session One Campers of 2015,

 

From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you for the best start of summer 2015 that we could have ever imagined. Not only were we the BIGGEST session one that Wawayanda has ever had, but we were definitely the funniest, most creative, and the best looking bunch there ever was.  We could always count on you, for making us laugh, for teaching us how to dance-off, or for singing TSwift with us.

We will never forget the mud fight on the slip and slide hill, the overnights in rain locations, our 1-week camper friends, Larping Day, the time we all got tattoos, the fireworks, and especially the meatballs on spaghetti night. We will keep these memories with us all summer long, and we thank you for giving us such an exciting two weeks to start off the summer.

We are SO proud of you. Each and every one of you! You have become better versions of yourselves, tried new and adventurous things, stepped out of your comfort zones, and made new friends. You have shown your counselors love, created magical moments with each other, and brought the Wawayanda spirit to life.

As you lay down tonight, and have your last sleep in the smelly cabins in Pokey Totem, or in the rustic cabins on the hill, we hope that you dream of summers to come. We will miss you when you leave tomorrow, and we wish you the best of luck in the school year.

 

With all of our love,

Lindsay, Nick, and Dom
