Friday was the last trip day of the summer here at BSC!
After eating breakfast, the rookie and professional age groups went to Funtown Splashtown for the day. While there, campers were in different groups with 2 counselors in each group. The groups had to stay together and explore the park.
When we got to the park, we had lunch. Our amazing dining hall staff packed us sandwiches, chips, fruit and some other good stuff. When everyone finished eating, campers and their groups were free to roam the park until 3:30 which was their next check-in time. After checking in at 3:30 and then again at 5:30, campers and counselors were given meal tickets where they could choose from a cheese pizza, hamburger, chicken fingers, or a salad.
Once dinner ended, we headed back on the buses for the trip back to BSC. Overall, it was another successful trip to Funtown Splashtown!
While the professionals and rookies enjoyed their day at the amusement park, the senior campers woke up at 5:30am to go white-water rafting. This trip is sort of a right of passage here at camp. Only the seniors get to go rafting. It’s an amazing experience for them. Not only is it a great time, it is also a tremendous opportunity for them to bind with one another and reflect back on the summer and their years at camp. Some of them will be CIT’s next summer, while the rest still have one more summer as a camper.
Still many more exciting events to come as color war will start sometime this week!
Until next time,
