Summer 2021 has officially begun at Merrowvista! The Media Specialist will share periodic dispatches from camp here on the blog. Check back as we share more stories from Canaan Valley!
- It was a beautiful golden day here at Merrowvista this past Sunday, July 11, when we welcomed our 2021 campers!
- Campers were quickly accustomed to their cabins and leaders. First, they walked the grounds and then they met down at the activity center for their village photos.
- The day ended with the Opening Carnival, and our Wayfinders circling a fire by the waterfront!
- The first Flag Raise of the summer was lead by Moosilaukee!
- Mahoosuc and Little Bigelow took in some rock, paper, scissors outside the activity center.
- Wayfinder D/E took on some volleyball, tetherball, and a very spirited game at the Gaga Pit. Wayfinder A circled up outside the Eating Lodge for some bonding. Both groups went on to meet with Wayfinder B & Wayfinder C groups for Community Celebration.
- At the end of the day, all of the villages came together outside the activity center for a lively Opening Circle!
- Some go-getters run, some go swimming, but Moolisaukee makes time for yoga!
- Wayfinder A led Flag Raise on this silver day.
- Blueberry took some free throws on the basketball courts, while Whitecap scored some big goals on the soccer field before rushing over for some time at the waterfront.
- Wayfinder D/E headed out after breakfast for their shakedown to The Ledge!
- Little Bigelow decided to take in the chill day by the Water Front as Mahoosuc put on an impressive display of frisbee skills at the Activity Center.
- The day ended with some much-needed cabin time for all our villages.
Until next time,
