OH MY! Time sure does fly when you’re having fun! I can’t believe the end of summer 2021 is upon us already, but thankfully we’ve all made some lifelong friends and memories.
Last night, we got to celebrate the last night of camp as a whole. 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. After our awards, we watched the slideshow, and everyone had an amzing time reliving their favourite moments of Second Session. We then finished off our night in the theatre by giving out some 15-year gifts to this year’s recipients, CIT Director Halle Purther and Assistant Director Melissa Bruce, and a 20-year gift to Administrative Director Jen White. There were amazing speeches about all of our recipients and I know they felt the Manitou family love.
To finish off the night, we all headed out to flagpole where we heard Camp Is speeches from campers from each unit, where they told us what camp means to them and how it has changed their lives. Then, the Jordana Lokash Award for Spirit and Sportsmanship was presented to two camper recipients. This award is in memory of a former camper and staff who loved camp with all her heart, and unfortunately passed away at a young age. This year, our two award recipients were CIT Dylan Nathanson and Senior Boy Damian Mehilli. Congrats to them both….I know everyone was so happy for them!
Overall, it was an amazing last night, and a perfect way to end a perfect summer.
Well, I’m off to say my goodbyes to everyone, but I know before you know it, we’ll be back for summer 2022. That’s all for now.
