Camp Susquehannock Opens for 104th Summer!
After two weeks of intense preparation, the staff of Camp Susquehannock welcomed another group of campers eager to embrace the singular experience provided at our Tripp Lake campus. We are happy to launch the second volume of The Tripp Lake Times, which will continue to chronicle the summer at Susquehannock.
The first night of the session is reserved for reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. After both Camps received a welcome from Director Cannie Shafer and the Staff, the girls and boys head to their respective camps for opening night festivities, including Counselor Skits in the Girls Camp and a Dodgeball game in the Boys camp.
As we create our Orange and Blue teams, campers participate in World Games. We strive to make fair teams where every camper feels confident to contribute. A special event in the first hours of the session is the Team Cheers in both Camps.
A spirited first week was capped off by our annual Fourth of July Field Days in the Boys Camp. Teams compete in a variety of games, followed by a swim at the Waterfront and a cook-out. Cannie Shafer welcomed both Camps and introduces Andrew Hano, who provided the keynote address. After Andrew’s remarks, the games begun!
