Silent Storm Silent Disco Comes to Camp Starlight

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

It could have been a scene from Big Bang Theory or Impractical Jokers: Camp Starlight campers and staff dancing to…silence.  But it was actually one of the newest up and coming party trends called silent disco powered by Silent Storm Sound System.  Yes, you heard us correctly.  Silent disco.  No, it’s not a sacred ritual in memoriam to what some might call John Travolta’s best years.  It’s a way to make sure that no one thinks the playlist is bad.  Everyone was given a headset that allowed them to choose their own tunes and dance the night away without decibel levels to cause vibrations which measure on the Richter scale throughout Starlight, Pennsylvania.

We won’t lie.  Silent disco is not only tremendous fun but it’s a bit comical, too.  Watching a roomful of people each dancing without hearing the sounds behind the moves made for a night of hilarity and awesome times!  It was a huge hit with everyone.  In fact, it was still the subject of conversation at breakfast the next morning for many of our campers and staff.  The general consensus is that everyone can’t wait to try it again!  We definitely raised the roof…but this time we didn’t have to crank up a few amplifiers as high as they could go.

What I Like Most about Camp so Far…

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Today we asked some of the Junior Girls what they have liked best about camp so far.  Here were their replies…

“I love the Waterfront.  The water trampoline is soo much fun.  I like to go in the deep end and play games with friends.  You can also jump off the dock and go in the shallow end and play tag or walk in the water with friends.  The Waterfront is sooo much fun!”–Marlie K.

“Camp Starlight is cool, awesome, and fun.  It’s so much fun you don’t want to leave at the end.  You will come back the next year!  They make it feel like home!  My first thing I got to do, and it was my first time doing it, was Panic and Waterskiing.  The counselors are great!”–Alex P.

“The Waterfront is a place where everybody in camp swims.  There’s a boy’s waterfront and a girl’s waterfront.  There’s a deep end and a shallow end of the lake.  You have free swim and instructional.”–Chloe W.

“Finally!  We are at camp!  There are a lot things to do at camp like waterskiing.  Best experience of my life!”–Tessa G.

“Camp Starlight is awesome with all the fun sports and all the yummy canteen.  You get to play other sports, so you should visit Camp Starlight.”–Alix S.

“Camp Starlight is awesome, cool, and SO much fun!  The counselors there are extremely nice and fun!  We have a good time doing Panic and meeting our camp sisters and much more!  We have an even better time at Olympics!  I love going to Camp Starlight!”–Sara G.

As you can tell, the Waterfront (especially waterskiing), Panic, and the counselors are all extremely popular among the Junior Girls here at Camp Starlight.  Keep reading for updates from other campers and staff members throughout the summer!
