My Ideal Day at Camp

The first thing I want to hear in the morning is the sound of the ­­­­­­­­­­­­­    Blank 1    ___Blank 2_and Marva’s voice ringing loudly over the speaker. All morning when I am at skills I think about ­     Blank 3  Blank 4     Blank 5 . That is just what I need to give me the energy I need for my favorite activity – sock war! The only problem is that I have a sweet tooth, but that will be  Blank 6  by going to the   Blank 7   to get some Reese’s Cups. After working up a sweat during sock war, it feels great to  Blank 8   into the nice cool lake. After free swim, a few friends and I go find  Blank 9  Blank 10 and start building the Blank 11  so we can cook  Blank 12   Blank 13 . But we can’t hang around for too long because we get to go sing campfire songs with Blank 14   Blank 15. There is no better way to end the day than to sit by the fire and watch the Blank 16 float into the starry sky.

Construction Update!

Posted on March 2, 2012 by sarah

Here at camp, we are so excited about all of the changes going on around Crestridge. A lot of progress has been made on the Beehive since our last update. The siding is almost all up on the outside, just waiting to be painted. The walls are up on the inside both upstairs and downstairs and it looks great! It is amazing how different the inside looks with the walls up between the rooms and everything. It is coming along very nicely… It will be an awesome place to hang out this summer!

We also have a few other construction related projects going on around camp. The telephone pole that used to be in front of the store was moved down the hill a little so it isn’t right in front of the Beehive. Also, something that will be really nice are the new windows that are being put in the gym. The new windows are already in one side of the gym and it is crazy how much more light those windows are letting in!

Can’t wait until the summer when you all are here and get to enjoy all of these changes and additions as well!!
