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!

Those crazy camp songs…talent shows…rainy-day activities.

How many friendship bracelets can you fit on your wrist? And how this simple accessory links us to those we love most.

Baco & Che-Na-Wah smile.

It is about the sounds of laughter, rain on the roof, and singing.

It is about the setting of the sun, and the warmth of a campfire.

It is about connecting to all of those generations of Baco boys and Che-Na-Wah daughters that paved the way.

It’s about the high 5’s. Its about belonging to a community.

And sometimes, there’s work to be done even before a child gets to camp.

Homesickness are issues that, at times, take some prep work. As Dr. Michael Thompson states in his book Homesick and Happy “Children do not have a lot of life experience. They need you to help them anticipate both their pain and their strengths.”  Have confidence in your child’s ability to manage the challenge of being away. They will sense your worry very quickly.

Once we are able to turn the negatives of homesickness into a different direction, those kids will also be able to experience the power and magic of camp.

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
