Another Successful Summer Camp

Horizon Camp ended on Saturday, July 25 and I’m still recovering.  This year’s camp was a blast.  There were a lot of new people that brought new spirit back to the camping experience.  We had our largest turnout with nearly 200 people throughout the week.  The camp and recruitment committees worked hard in the organization process and everyone had a wonderful time.

There were many of our favorite activities including Arts & Crafts, swimming, karaoke and our pizza party.  One new activity that was quite popular was our Cabin Feud game show.  We combined cabins and they competed against others.  Congratulations to Owl/Hawk for their victory.  It was fun and exciting to watch but there was some controversy and a couple of teams were not pleased with the outcome.  People have to realize it was ONLY A GAME!  Horizon did bring back its Carnival evening and there were several creative games for everyone to participate in.

It is hard to imagine seven days going so quickly but that happens every year at Camp.  By the time people get to know one another it’s time to pack up.  Please feel free to leave a comment about your camp experience that you just will not forget or something you would like to share with others.

  1. This was the best camp I have had in a long time. It was great to have all the new people there and see them become part of the family. The team leaders were some of the best ever. Activities were great (and I am not biased because of my sister). It was really a fantastic week and I miss it already.

  2. I also did not mean to leave out the rest of the support team who made the week so great, thanks Anna, Trimpe, George, Jen, and Tommy. You were great to work with.

  3. I would like to say welcome to the “family” to all our new campers & attendants. You all were so much fun to be around. I have to say, it was an amazing week! Every year it’s a great time and I leave wondering how will we ever top that. Yet somehow we manage to year after year.
    I believe this year was a perfect blend of new and old…new and old campers, new and old attendants & new and old activities. Great job by the camp committee and the recruitment committee! It’s a lot of work to make it happen but, as we see, it’s worth every effort.
    Finally, a big THANK YOU to the camp support staff for all the behind the scene things you did to keep it all running smooth.

  4. Camp was amazing this year. Thank you again Mike A for the wonderful video. Thank you to TPOC for getting those new cabins built so we could have our largest camp ever. I want to congratulate once again team “Friends” a combined team from Golden Eagle and Sterns for winning this years scavenger hunt, but team “The View” from American Eagle came in at a close second. I do hope that everyone had a much fun at camp as I had. I am already missing the yogurt bar at breakfast. Yes for those of you who missed breakfast there were chocolate chips on the yogurt/sundae bar. I can’t wait until fall weekend. Perhaps the fortune I got at carnival night – not my reading from Lea but from the ‘wheel of fortune” should be the reason we return year after year to camp – the fortune was “you will leave camp with a new friend”

  5. Wow what an amazing week at camp! I can’t believe its over, the days are so long but the week is so short! Thank you everyone for attending Camp Horizon 2009 and making it such a special week!
