It's now less than a month to go before the 2011 Camp Wa Wa Segowea summer season starts! On this date, one month from today, it will be the first full day of camp! Parents will have dropped off their kids on Sunday, June 26th, met the Wa Wa Staff and then said their goodbyes. Kids will just begin to experience the magic Segowea offers- the ability to expand their capabilities, be adventurous, make new friends and of course have fun! On this day, the swim test takes place, watched over closely by the Waterfront Director and camp counselors (college-age young adults) who honestly care about kids. Kids get the full tour of camp and enjoy nature at its finest. They also decide what activities they would most like to take as their skill classes. Everyone takes swimming and then decide what else they would like to participate in. Perhaps it will be something they already know a bit about or maybe something they've never tried before but always wanted to?
Will it be canoeing?
Field Sports and Basketball?
Arts & Crafts?
or a camper favorite- Archery!
Learning more about nature?
or a new class of "Building with Norm"?
or a Cooking class?
Whatever they decide to take part in, they'll be sure to have a great time while learning valuable skills. That's just one part of the child's stay at Camp Wa Wa Segowea! Campers will have lots of opportunities to be adventurous during games and other activity times, to play, sing and just be. There'll be free swim, open boating, and there's almost always a game of box ball happening! There's just enough balance between the scheduled activities and the free time to let the camper increase their self-confidence and self-esteem while appreciating nature in our beautiful outdoor setting.
Enrollment is easy and available online. (www.segowea.org) The week long sessions start June 26th and run till August 26th. If the child is staying for a couple weeks (or even more), they can always stay over the weekend. You can talk directly to the camp director Kat Fitzpatrick at 518-656-9462 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There's still a couple Open Houses left on the schedule for those who wish to see the camp in person for the first time or those who wish to see it again before the summer! There's this Sunday, May 29th, as well as June 5th and June 19th. RSVP to Kat and come out and enjoy!
Like these guys did a couple weeks ago-
Also, some recent news online of Camp Segowea- a mention in the New Marlborough Village News http://www.newmarlborough.org/2011%20NM5VN/NM5VN_MAYLR.pdf (Page 18) and one runner's view of the recent Wa Wa Wally Waddle- http://www.inthegym.net/gymnotes/
