Simba drops by the show today. He is the winner of the 2019 Ken “Coach” Baker award. Simba talks with Soy about how camp changed since his first year (15 years ago!). He also shares a ton of wisdom about the important things that don’t change at camp and tells great stories about him dancing and why his name was almost “Fez.”
Kiwi dropped by the GACHQ to chat with Soy face to face about what makes camp so special. She talks about her family connection to camp (even though she wasn’t a camper) and how camp has impacted her phone use now that she’s back at school. There’s also a friendship tip, a GACspiration, and Joke of the Cast to enjoy!
This episode, Soy is joined by long-time camper and current staff member Tripps. Tripps and Soy have a great chat about camp, connections, and how young she was the first time she came to camp! There’s also a friendship tip of the week, a joke of the cast, and a GACSpiration!
The POG-Cast is back! If you found our podcast during the summer, when it is called Wadda Day, this episode will be a bit of a surprise to you. During the year, our podcast turns into the POG-Cast, which is a weekly podcast that features more in-depth interviews with staff members, parents, and campers. It also has some of the great parts of morning assembly, like Joke of the Day, Stat of the Day, and the Friendship Tip!
This week we have Gold Arrow Camp’s newest director, Heather “Cheerio” Veatch, who just joined our team year-round after 10 summers working at camp. Prior to working for camp, Cheerio was an elementary school teacher. She and Soy have a great conversation about education and camp, as well as some behavior management tools that we use at camp that you can use at home.
