Sand Castles, Sweet Things, Gladiators

Every session, I always worry how long the period of adjustment is for a certain group of campers. Sometimes, it takes a little while for kids to adjust from their everyday routine and sometimes the kids just throw themselves into the camp lifestyle and there really is no period of adjustment.

Well, this session pretty much had none. This was never more evident than it was yesterday at Cacapon. The campers and counselors belted out all of the traditional camp songs and cheers on the bus ride there and the oft-mentioned trademark CTT zaniness took over as soon as we pulled into the parking lot. The kids didn’t have much luck fishing, but we had a great day splashing around in the water and, as usual, the sandcastle building contest showed us how imaginative our kids really are.

Cabin 3 and Cabin 5 tied for first place, but all of the entries were really cool. The boys in the BV even made a replica of Bowser’s Castle from the Mario games. All in all, Cacapon was a really neat experience for all of us.

It’s hard to believe the first week of camp is almost over. The flag football and baseball leagues begin today and tomorrow is our first Sweet Saturday! Tomorrow is also Gladiator Day and that should be a lot of fun. There will be a whole line-up of awesome sporting events for the kids and counselors alike. Everyone enjoys special Saturday activities, and this one should be no exception.

So big things are happening here at camp! This has been a great session so far and the next two weeks can only get better. CTT is definitely the place to be this summer.
