A Bit of Nostalgia Makes Its Way to the CS Waterfront

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Do you know how in movies—or maybe you’ve actually done this yourself—you see those nostalgic scenes of kids swinging from a rope into their local swimming hole?  Well, it may be 2012, but rope swings are not a thing of the past.  In fact, Camp Starlight introduced its own version to the Boys and Girls Waterfronts this year.  Although ours is just a little more technically complex than the old fashioned kind that were just ropes tied around the nearest tree branch, the concept is the same: grab on and swing as high and as far out over the water as you can before letting go and dropping into the water.  The campers are loving it and think it’s great to have yet another fun activity at the extremely popular Waterfront.  Already, they’re challenging themselves to swing higher and farther!

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!
