No, this year we won’t be telling stories that keep campers eyes open all night. We won’t jump out from the shadows at them. It is not the goal of a camp counsellor to make the night a scary place. It is our role to show each camper the magic that comes when the night is still. To help them see just how beautiful darkness can be. To allow them to make friends with the monsters under their bed – because we never know what incredible stories those monsters could have to tell. Don’t judge a Sasquatch by its feet – isn’t that what we’ve all been told?
Hello friends of Camp K!
I am so excited to be bringing to you a new addition to Kummoniwannago’s online presence – a blog! I will be attaching links to each new blog post on our social media pages as they are completed.
The aim of the blog is to keep camper families, current and future staff, and alumni in the loop of what is going on throughout the year at Camp K, what’s coming up, and just to look back on some good times we have had. I thought an appropriate first post would be a look at the history of our camp and just how far we’ve come! So, without further ado, please enjoy the new blog!
Let's start this off with everyone's favourite blog style - The Listicle! You're the person who has the first day of camp marked on your calendar. The person who looks out the window at Christmastime and sees in the snowflakes memories of hot summer days, shorts, and Birkenstocks. School is just a way to pass the time while waiting for the early morning drives down your favourite road.
But what are you supposed to do with all this extra time!? Besides homework, Camp Kummoniwannago has a few ideas to get you through the hardest parts of the year: fall, winter, and spring.
1. Take a trip to your happy place before it closes for the season
2. Make a craft
3. Learn a new camp song for next year
4. Perfect your J-stroke
5. Play the animal game
6. Try to formulate a sentence with the largest possible amount of camp slang
7. Celebrate Wacky Wednesday
8. Work at a campfire instrument until you can lead songs at campout
9. Go camping!
10. Count all your camp swag
11. Visit Kumo
