IMAGE CAPTION – The weather outside is frightful…

Camp is cold and covered in snow but the office is warm and full of people. Dan is leaving for a

few home showings in Florida and Ryan is heading north to recruit staff, while Claire is busy

interviewing new girls every day. Up on the hill the workers are busy expanding cabins…yes, one is

getting a second story. Another group is putting the final touches on a new log cabin that will be

used for married staff and kitchen workers. Of course there are lots of other new things happening

but you will have to wait until you get here to see them.

From The Mailbag

Kelly J. wrote with suggestions to name the new log cabin. “I was thinking since it will be near

the archery range it could have something to do with arrows. So what about “cupid’s arrow” or

something like that? Or to go along with the theme of the other cabins, how about “new moon” because

none of the other cabins have names with “moon” in them yet. I’m still brainstorming!” So what

ideas do the rest of you have? Lindsay Brasington wrote to say, “Just reading these posts and

looking at the pictures is making me camp sick right now! I miss all of you so much! I just started

an internship with a magazine here in Columbia, SC, and it is a lot of fun, but not nearly as fun as

my job at camp was!” From Emily M. we hear, “I am WAY too camp sick! I refuse to take my camp

necklace off, I’m on the website everyday . . . HELP ME! I can’t wait to see Merri Mac and the new

addition to a new cabin. I’m counting the days!” Rachel S. wrote again saying, “Hey everybody! I

miss camp so much. It might be because I’m warm at camp, but here in KY, it is freezing. We have had

no school all week because of snow and ice. Anyway, I can’t wait to get back to camp and see all my

friends. I can’t believe I’m going for 4 weeks this year! I got friend of mine interested in camp,

so she might be coming this year. She’s excited too.” Finally, Daniella C. wrote saying, “I have

always dreamed with an all girls summer camp just like the movie The Parent Trap. I decided to look

for summer camps and after a lot of research I found the awesome Merri-Mac camp. I almost couldn’t

believe that I founded my dream camp and it was exactly as how I dreamed it. So I talked to my

parents and drove them crazy for months and still doing it. It was almost too good to be true. So

one on my birthday presents was going to summer camp. I’m so excited! I want it to be summer soon.

So I’m hoping on seeing you all on summer! I can’t wait to go. I’m looking forward for one of my

greatest summer ever!” Daniella, we’ll look forward to your joining the fun at camp too!

We’d love to hear from you too so drop us a line at camp.

Great Camping!
