Campers running to Breakout 2015.

“You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind; a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. Next stop . . . the Twilight Zone!”

Peakers celebrate Breakout!

Tonight the Peakers took us on a journey into the Twilight Zone for a breakout to remember.  We started thinking it was the Counselor Hunt, but where were the counselors? Then Sherie on the mic, and the counselors all popped out! After a video in the Rec Hall, we ran to the soccer field, and then all over camp and every girl joined their White or Blue teammates in cheers and team spirit.  The Peakers are ready to lead us in a great year of competition and fantastic sportsmanship.

Guest Travelogue, images and story by Emily Weber:

Beholding the fields and horses.

Junior B Bunks 13 and 14 boarded the bus in the afternoon and headed for the Point O’Pines Farm, nestled in the Adirondack Mountains off Brant Lake. After the six minute drive to the farm the 15 girls took their bags and set up camp for the night in two lean-tos.

Point O'Pines Farm

For dinner the eight counselors on the trip whipped up some delicious steamed vegetables, chicken and cheese pizza and salad.  While dinner was cooking, we took a trip to the sand hill where the girls ran and played on the sand.  Upon our return to the camp site the WAD staff had prepared a beautiful campfire! As the last preparations for dinner were happening campers sat around the campfire singing songs, telling stories and laughing…a lot.

Campers dine in style on an overnight at the farm.

After dinner the girls gathered around for s’mores and steaming hot cocoa accompanied by some more singing around the fire. Then it was off to bed for the Junior Bs.

Campfire stories and singing at the farm.

We all awoke at 7:15 am this morning to pack everything back up and be back in time for camp breakfast. In all, it was a great overnight filled with singing, games, laughter and s’mores. It was a great way for the girls to bond as bunks.
