We have survived our first week of camp

Today marks the completion of our first week of camp.  I am happy to report that things are going really well!  We moved into our cabin a week ago.  One good side effect of living in two bedroom apartments for the past year is we are use to living in a fairly small amount of space.  We weren’t really sure what to expect at camp, but I’m glad to say we have our own cabin.  It’s basically a small two bedroom apartment.  We even have our own bathroom with shower!  (Those who have been to a summer camp know what kind of luxury that is.)

We still don’t have any kids at camp.  They don’t get here for another few days.  This week has been staff week, so that means lots of ice breakers, meetings, and good ol’ physical labor getting the camp ready.  I spent the afternoon raking mulch.

Sophie and Sawyer really like their babysitter, Katie.  She is from England and the kids have taken to her really well.  They want to spend as much time as they can with her, so we have to make a point to give her breaks.

Beth has been busy getting the infirmary ready.  She has an assistant nurse to help her get the infirmary cleaned, stocked, and ready to go.  But she also has to be prepared to receive medications from both the staff and the campers.  Let’s just say there are LOTS of people on meds!

The campers get here on Sunday and Sophie starts going to the day camp on Monday.  That’s when the fun really begins!  I’ll try and post some pictures soon.
