Wawayanda Dance-Off! A Camp Tradition
Summer 2018 is off to a great start for Wawayanda! Wawayanda is all about having fun, meeting new people, trying new things, and building community. There are so many ways we build community- like opening campfire, hoopla, and the Wawayanda Dance off to name a few! The dance-off takes place at dinner everyday and is completely optional. Kids and counselors get to sign up to dance together in a circle with a friend. Here are some photos from tonight’s dance-off between two counselors from Outpost Village. These two staff had the entire dining hall captivated and energized by their goofy dance moves!
