18 Jun Work Week Wrap – Day 5

Tuesday was another beautiful day that allowed for much more progress on the various projects around campus. The Waterfront is almost ready to go except for bringing out boats; the playing fields are getting mowed in preparation for lining; the periphery is getting weed-eated; grass is being removed from both beach Volleyball courts and inside fencing of the Tennis courts.
Speaking of the Tennis courts, We have started to dig two 3.5 foot fence posts by hand; a grueling job but alum Pete McNeely is leading the charge on this project.
As the sun is setting or rising, I am always amazed to actually see how much progress we make to prepare Camp for another amazing summer and another generation of campers…

17 Jun Work Week Wrap – Day 4

Another awesome day in the books! Our work force has increased by the addition of several Grizzled Veterans who arrived today, but unfortunately we lose Chris Wierzbowski and Kendyl Paolini on Tuesday. No job was too big or too small for these two as they generously took time off from the outside world to come home and volunteer.
Time was spent working on the Garden and various flower beds around campus, the hay is off ALL of the courts, debris piles were raked and cleared away, mowing and weed-eating has begun in earnest (and will continue for awhile!). With the arrival of Eric Rozen we will begin to putting in the turnboards and finishing up at the Waterfront. And, other than a brief bout of Susquehannock Dew after dinner, the weather appears to be cooperating…
This group of volunteers and staff members has been amazing and has exceeded expectations at every turn. We took a break from the To Do List to enjoy the American victory over Ghana in the World Cup after dinner.
But until then: let the work continue!

16 Jun Work Week Wrap – Day 3

As a public service, Tony Meyers is providing a daily recap of the on-going preparation of the Camp facilities during Work Week. 

Another day in the books! Just a smidgen of hay to remove from The Folly clay court in S4G. John Lloyd led a great group down at the Waterfront that assembled the Float. The turnboards are up next.


It was also a tremendous day in that we began to pick up leaves …and more leaves …and more leaves. After an extremely long winter they just are everywhere!


Mowers were out and weed-eaters were going in S4G and at the Riding Stables. We were able to tame about 95% of the high grass. The forecast for Monday looks wonderful so hopefully things will start to look just like another day at Camp!

15 Jun Work Week – Day 2 Recap

Work Week 02As a public service, Tony “The Man With No Eyes” Meyers is providing a daily recap of the on-going preparation of the Camp facilities during Work Week. 

Interestingly enough, even with the heavy amount of Susquehannock Dew, King’s Court and Court 4 have now been cleared of hay by the rock stars of Work Week. The Riding Stables were weed-eated, multiple piles of debris were cleared and many other miscellaneous projects completed.

Work Week 02b

We should be having better weather through Tuesday so many more outdoor jobs will get done: mowing, more mowing and even more mowing. The Waterfront will start to take shape this afternoon in preparation of the arrival of Grizzled Veteran Eric Rozen to assemble the turnboards …it might even be a Soap Day!

This group of S4G, S4B staff and alumni have been awesome so far taking the most tedious or difficult jobs and making them go smoothly like ice cream on a Sunday afternoon!

14 Jun Work Week – Day 1 Recap

Next Stop: "King's Court"

Next Stop: “King’s Court”

As a public service, Tony “The Man With No Eyes” Meyers is providing a daily recap of the on-going preparation of the Camp facilities during Work Week. 

Friday was the first day of Work Week and we were greeted with a heavy dose of Susquehannock Dew. It is great to see all the alumni volunteers (Chris Wierzbowski, Allie Handman, Kendyl Paolini Mark Moeller, Patrick Valentine and more arriving) take time off from their jobs in order to help out at Camp. Work Week is a great chance for the intermingling of new staff members with the Loyal Guard as the team for the summer forms.

While dodging the drops, the Dining Hall and several staff cottages were cleaned from top to bottom. On the agenda for today: we will begin removing hay from the clay Tennis courts, raking leaves, putting brush into piles, weed-eating and so much more.

I think I hear First Bell for breakfast – until tomorrow!

One of the biggest highlights of the summer is Counselor Skit Night during Second Session. Over the last few years, the staff has augmented the traditional live action skits with pre-recorded videos that highlight life at Camp on an entirely different level.

10 Aug MC Fireball and Gigantusball at S4B

The Orange and Blue at S4B culminates with two large scale games on consecutive days: MC Fireball and Gigantusball.

Gigantusball is a variation of the popular Angleball game played at both S4B and S4G. Campers and coaches exchange pre-game handshakes and expressions of good sportsmanship before taking the field.
