Dancin' the Night Away

So it's the last night of camp, and one can easily tell! The dance just started, but the kids were excited way before that. All day we've heard comments about what folks are wearing and how much they're looking forward to it.

We've bet against the weather a few times this week, but this afternoon we lost. One group had beautiful sunshine and enjoyed a full swim, but the others unfortunately missed out, due to thunder in the area. We avoided the rain for the most part, and we compensated for the missed swim by taking the camp bank and the pool snack bar down to the kids. They ate eight pizzas in hardly any time at all.

Everyone raced back up the hill to get ready for the dance. The boys dorms, which have been more like locker rooms at times, are now filled with mixed scents of Axe cologne, hair gel, and more. The girls straightened their hair, curled and braided others, and found new shirts or even skirts for the affair. Dinner was taco salads, and now we're dancing the night away.

Parents: please pick up Madison kids at Madison High School at 6:00 p.m. tomorrow. Orange campers will be picked up at Orange Elementary at 6:30 p.m. Please remember your camper express pick-up cards!
