Your camper received a yearbook with his or her cabin mates’ contact information. We hope this will help your camper keep in touch with camp friends! If the yearbook gets misplaced, let us know and we’ll be happy to send you a copy of the address list for your child’s cabin.

Thank you for sharing your children with us this summer!

 


Under the Big Top Dance

Last night, campers and counselors sported circus-themed clothing while having a camp-wide dance party on the Dining Porch. Some brought costumes to camp while others created costumes at Arts & Crafts during their time at camp. Campers entered the Porch through a tunnel of very enthusiastic Junior Counselors, who helped set up and take down the circus-themed decorations that surrounded the dance floor. Campers were offered soda, pretzels, and sour candies throughout the dance to celebrate the end of the session (and refuel for more dancing!). The new GAC photo booth was a huge hit; campers lined up to take pictures with their cabin mates and counselors, making goofy faces and showing off their big smiles.

Some of our favorite songs at GAC, such as “Footloose,” “Move Your Body,” “Cupid Shuffle,” and the “Cha Cha Slide” were all met with cheers followed by our synchronized camp dances. Quite a few rounds of Spot It and other card games took place at the side tables for campers who needed a little break from all the dancing.

We all had the chance to show off the dance moves we’ve been practicing all session, and we had a great night!

 


International Day

Yesterday was International Day here at GAC! When campers arrived for breakfast, the Dining Porch was already decorated with flags from all over the world, leading many campers to test one another on their international flag knowledge. At morning assembly, international campers and staff went on stage to share fun facts about their countries. Several international campers and counselors sported their country’s flag or other gear for the day. We even had a One Direction themed dinner to celebrate international pop stars. We love learning and adapting catchphrases from other countries all over camp. We are thankful for our diverse community that we have here at GAC!
