A Final Goodbye to Summer 2023!

OH MY! Time sure does fly when you’re having fun! I can’t believe it’s the end of summer 2023 already, but thankfully we’ve all made some lifelong friends and memories. We’re so lucky here at camp to have the greatest staff and campers in the world in one of the most beautiful places on Earth!

Yesterday, all of us were hard at work packing out. It’s a bittersweet time, but if I know our campers, I’m sure they all had a blast packing together and helping each other out.

Last night, we celebrated the last night of camp. First, we had our activity awards, where each Activity Head gives out two awards to campers who have improved at their activity throughout Second Session. It’s so awesome seeing our campers cheer for each other when their names get called out! After our awards, we watched the slideshow, which our Photographer David Hamilton put together, and I can tell all the hard work he put in capturing the magic of camp. We finished off our night in the theatre by giving out a 15-year gift to this year’s recipient CIT Director Jonah Opler and honouring Mark Diamond in his final summer. We then all headed out to flagpole where the Jordana Lokash Award for Spirit and Sportsmanship was given out to our well-deserving recipients: Margo Cholakis and Cooper Pantel. The cheers for them and the smiles on everyone’s faces made it clear these campers are an awesome pair and perfect recipients for this award. We then sang our camp song as we lowered the flag, and I saw cabin groups arm in arm singing the song one final time.

It was an amazing last night, and a perfect way to end a perfect summer.

The buses are just rolling out and I am going to say goodbye to my friends, but I know I will see them all again next year for summer 2024.

Until then…

Yours Moosily,

Manny the Moose
