Farewell Session A!

I think everyone who has been to summer camp remembers the feeling of running into the arms of your family on the last day – proud of yourself for having accomplished so much over the summer, all by yourself, far away from home. As the campers boarded the busses this morning, we as a staff were so proud of each of them and excited for you all to have your loved ones back in your arms.

What a beautiful session and what a beautiful final morning to cap it off! Many campers had tears in their eyes as they ran through the “tunnel of love” (made of two rows of staff and SCITs) and boarded the busses to take them home. Campers pulled each other into tight hugs and cried tears of joy, sadness, excitement and love for each other and Camp Tawonga. 

Last night we gathered for a banquet dinner, song session and closing campfire. The energy was palpable as we scream-sang all the Camp favorites.

After a cancelled season last summer, we could feel the campers’ gratitude for spending the past 3.5 weeks together and their joy and comfort in knowing they can come back next year. 

Thank you so much, Session A families for keeping up with the blog and sharing your kids with us this summer – and to Session A fans who have  been tuning in for your Tawonga fix too!

P.S. Next week, families of Session A campers will receive an email with a link to high resolution photos from the blog (free to download). We would love to stay connected with your family throughout the year through our “Down the Mountain” programs! Stay tuned for upcoming events, and be sure to save the date for our annual Erev Rosh Hashanah Celebration on Monday, September 6. Details coming soon!
