Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt

Just in case you missed being assigned to evening activity, we decided to make one for you!

We all love scavenger hunts so much – but since we aren’t together, you are assigned to a photo scavenger hunt!IMG_7904

Go through the list of our scavenger hunt items, and check off as many as you can!  Haven’t been to camp yet?  Don’t worry, you can do this with a new camp friend.  They can explain everything to you!!

Submit all of your pictures in 1 email to

allison@campbaco.com

If you submit pictures from the scavenger hunt, you will be entered into a raffle.  It doesn’t matter how many pictures you submit.  (Teams can enter together, but there is only 1 prize).  The winner of the raffle will receive a limited edition 2016 Senior Staff Flannel, which you will receive the first night of camp.

With yours or your parent’s permission, we would also love to post the top pictures and winner on Instagram!

Anyone can participate… campers, parents, staff, alumni! BUT in order to be entered into the raffle, you must be attending camp in the summer of 2017.

The bell will ring when the activity activity is over… on April 1!

There will be more raffles leading up to Summer 2017!  Get excited!!

Baco Alma Mater

Tune: Blue Moon

Baco, we’ll all remember you after

For all the joy and the laughter

That made our summer so gay

Baco, your lake of blue and your campus

  The thrill of years as they pass us

 Bring memories of summer days.

 And in the spirit of true love and glory

 Where campers played and showed their hearts so bold

 Then came the echo of Camp Baco’s story

 And told the future of the blue and gold.

 Baco, you’re all we ever have yearned for

 We thrill to all of your beauty

 To you we’ll praise evermore.

Che-Na-Wah Alma Mater

Tune: Where My Caravan Has Rested

On Lake Balfour’s shining waters

Happy we from sun to sun,

Hear the loyalty of thy daughters

Singing evermore to thee,

O Camp Che-Na-Wah

For thy comradship, joy, and sportsmanship

Offer we our love to thee.

Skies above so blue and spacious,

Lofty mountain tops serene,

All thy loveliness, fair, and gracious,

Render us the worthier,

O Camp Che-Na-Wah

For thy comradship, joy, and sportsmanship

Offer we our love to thee.

Camp Habits that Stick with us at Home

Coming home in August with our camp wrists and flip flop tans makes for a difficult adjustment—especially in terms of our summer habits! For a little while, we find ourselves telling jokes to our friends at home that may make no sense, or casually utilizing camp lingo in our everyday

We’re here because there’s no place we’d rather be

Yes, it’s almost here. There still might be snow on the ground in Minerva, but I can almost smell it. S’mores, Campfires, those secrets with our bunkmates…basketball, archery, tennis, Color War! And don’t forget about playing air guitar with a tennis raquet. Camp Baco & Camp Che-Na-Wah…What an amazing gift!
