 CAMPER-IN-TRAINING DAY 2017

I simply love this day.

I love showing off camp to the over 80 prospective families who walked through our gates today.

I love hearing our current campers and staff greeting all of our campers-in-training and their families.

I love watching the new families get a small taste of life at Camp Louise.

I love seeing the child who was a bit apprehensive at the beginning of the day come running up to their parent at the end of day with smiles saying how much fun they had!

I love the friendships that are instantly made. What we say is 100% true – camp friends absolutely are friends for life!

I love sharing our stories and learning other people’s stories.

I love seeing parents who went to Camps Airy & Louise reminiscing about their camp days and hoping/praying their children love camp as much as they did!

I love watching our campers-in-training get mail at the post office after lunch from their parents.

I love hearing our current campers and staff gushing with pride over how much they simply love Camp Louise!

I love watching the parents participate in activities.

I love seeing the campers-in-training go down our waterslides – shouting with pure joy!

I love the smiles we get at the end of a successful CIT Day. And this was one of my favorites of the day – A camper came up to me as she and her mom were heading out. She stopped me and said, “Camp Louise is so much fun! I don’t ever want to leave!”

It just doesn’t get any better than that!
