“Falling” in Love with Camp This Autumn

By |2014-09-18T11:03:58-04:00September 18th, 2014|

  As a Matolly girl since 2000, summer is, of course, my favorite season here at camp.  As August  winds down and the sound of dining hall singing is replaced by rustling leaves and the visiting day groups, it's sometimes a little sad to be on camp post-summer.  Luckily, my second favorite season, fall, is headed our way.  I know I've already been layering sweaters and scarves, and am a little embarrassed to admit that I've already used my heater this September.

Both camps come together for a day of friendly competition, teamwork, and sportsmanship. The day concludes with a closing ceremony when the winning team is announced and an all camp barbeque [...]
