It can now be said, that all of the first Session of Wawayanda Campers are all tucked in and sleeping safely in their bunks. We had a fun, high energy opening campfire this evening, full of laughter, cheers, and lots of songs. We even made Lakota Omlettes, and Outpost Pot Roast! Here’s all of Wawayanda, doing funny faces for a panorama photo shoot.
We wanted to thank all of our parents for sending your campers here to camp. We are so honored and excited to spend the next 11 days (4 days for some of you) with them! We are looking forward to sharing many magical moments and stories with you throughout the summer.
Peace, love, and Wawayanda,
